You guys know I care about you, right? That I hate being the bearer of bad news? Good. Unfortunately, it’s just part of the job sometimes, and today is one of those days. I hope you’re sitting down to read this, because it’s a real doozy. Jaden Smith has quit Twitter, you guys. He didn’t even tell anyone he was going to do it. One day he was there, and the next he was gone. How could this be?!
I mean, I know Joss Whedon deleted his Twitter, too – but that was over White Widow bullshit (and was a pansy move, I have to say – can’t take the criticism?) but Jaden was an absolute hero of the social media site and his absence has touched many. Don’t believe me? Just look:

I mean, look – the kid is nutso. Insane in the membrane. And I loved it! Who knows, maybe he’s just being dramatic and he’ll be back. We used to do that with our Open Diary and Livejournal accounts back in the day all the time.
