James Franco - James Franco Quits Twitter

Subscribe to James Franco alerts

Actor James Franco was forced to shut down his Twitter.com page after upsetting corporate sponsors with his online messages.
The 127 Hours star joined the social networking site earlier this year (11) and attracted plenty of attention with his Tweets, which included a swipe at Oscars writer Bruce Vilanch after he criticised Franco's Academy Awards hosting turn.
But the actor has now deleted his account after revealing not everyone enjoyed reading his blog.
He tells Politico.com, "Social media is over... My thought was 'This is my Twitter. I can do whatever I want.' But certain companies I work with contacted me about what I was saying."
And Franco admits taking a break from cyberspace may boost his creativity, adding: "If you want to write, make the time. We all have an hour or two a day that can be used for surfing Facebook or writing. No one is going to beg any new writer to write."

I watched "127 Hours" over the weekend, and thought James acting was superb. Yeah, his performance on the Academy Awards show sucked, but give the man some credit. He took his role a bit relaxed, and it didn't work. The producers of the Academy Awards show will fix this next year, I'm sure, by getting back to the "older" audience it's accustomed to. The whole social networking thing can get way out of hand, and one "tweet", or "post" only lasts for a short time anyway.
