John Mayer Makes Twitter Return

He ditched the microblogging site Twitter back in 2010 and now John Mayer is ready for his return to the Twitterverse!

The “No Such Thing” singer’s girlfriend Katy Perry told her fans the good news this past Friday (January 31) via her own account- "FOLLOW FRIDAY @JohnMayer who's account has basically been in a coma state for a couple of year. Let's update him on all the cat youtubes he may have missed pls! Thanks!”

From there, John posted a silly message, though the humor was a little lackluster considering his usually-razor-sharp wit. "I'll be honest, when it came to rejoining twitter, I had mixed emojis."

Still, for a guy who has been out of practice for over 3 years, perhaps Mayer just needs a little time to regain his 140-character footing.

In 2011, John explained his reasoning for ditching the social networking world- "I realized about a year ago that I couldn't have a complete thought anymore, and I was a tweetaholic."

"I had four million Twitter followers, and I was always writing on it. And I stopped using Twitter as an outlet and I started using Twitter as the instrument to riff on, and it started to make my mind smaller and smaller and smaller. And I couldn't write a song."
