Perhaps Miley Cyrus read Paolo Nutini’s comments to The Sun about Twitter to convince her to delete her account. The Scottish singer songwriter doesn’t get celebrities who constantly post updates on the micro blogging site. “I don’t really get it. I do have an account but it’s not always me updating it,” Nutini said. “Why would I like to be just writing random sentences all say? I don’t think: ‘Oooh I am going to tell everyone I know that I just woke up.’ I don’t care if the fans know that because I’d rather they know I’m concentrating on my music. Plus I don’t have the time.”
