Just four days after setting up his account in the micro-blogging site, the rapper said he's quitting because it brings negativity.
Prison-bound rapper Lil Wayne is leaving social networking site Twitter.com - just four days after launching his blog.
The "Lollipop" hitmaker, real name Dwayne Carter, Jr., signed up to the micro-blogging website on Monday, February 22 under the username 'liltunechi'. In his first 'tweet', Wayne, who will be sentenced for weapons charges next week (02Mar10), wrote, "im super new to this twitter s**t but wudup tho (sic)!..........follow me.......... 8 days of freedom."
Within 15 hours of his post, he had racked up more than 75,000 followers - but it appears he's turning his back on the Twitter craze after receiving some negative feedback. On Thursday morning, February 25 the hip-hop star wrote, "gunna stop with the tweets now that i see they're so unliked.....its a mirror of my thoughts, and obviously my thoughts arent welkome (sic). sorry."
