deadmau5 shut down his twitter account the other day without very much explanation. After poking around the internet for a few, we found an update from another deadmau5 social media channel, Tumblr, that gave us some 'insight' why.
MAGNETIC RECOMMENDS:Hard DOTD Event Recap
He says it's for reasons of "his own" but in all likelihood his management and publicists were worried about going on a rant (kind of like what he did at Hard DOTD, or when he broke up with his girlfriend, or when he blew up at his label, or . . .) that might be career damaging (if this is case they might want to check his Tumblr though too).
Here are 'his words' on Tumblr:
I’m no longer going to be managing my own twitter account for “deadmau5”. I’m going to let management deal with that account. My reasons are my own, not because of something i said, not because of this hilarious I.R.A. vs “ira” craic, not because of lady gaga’s infinite legions of brain dead fans. but as i said… reasons of my own.
Perhaps ill return to that in world as some reincarnation of sort, but for now, that’s off the table for me. I’ll continue to upload new music to my soundcloud, and the twitter account will point you in the right direction for the most recent happenings… but enough’s enough with living on twitter. Time to at least start by living in the studio making music without having to be force-fed stupid shit that annoys me, when all i’m trying to do is connect with fans.
As for the fans, thanks for all your continued support and understanding of my decision to personally unplug myself from the very thing that’s making me upset. As i’ve mentioned, the account will remain alive, and *my team* (yeah i went there) will keep you just as updated on the ongoings with new music and shit that actually matters.
To leave you with some good news, my new Tricaster arrives today. So perhaps ill be streaming video with direct audio a lot more often.
Thanks for having my back on this one."
It's funny how he's leaving Twitter, but staying on Tumblr (which is way more time consuming) to stay focused on his music.
