James Franco's Twitter account goes dark -- Slacker!

For what seems to be a first for him, James Franco has retired an endeavor. To be fair, it’s only Twitter. But for the man who juggles a multitude of professional, artistic, and personal activities, his online silence is a loss to anyone who enjoyed his eclectic musings or his occasional screeds.

Can we hope that this is some April Fools’ prank? I think not. Because that would be rather lame and disappointingly uninspired for someone of Franco’s artistic ambition. I’m sorry to say he’s gone silent — for the time being.

Hey, NYU students. Tell Prof. Franco to log back on soon.

    Not gonna lie, he over-tweeted, and I stopped following him weeks ago because of it. You can only post so many esoteric videos before you start to get annoying.

  • Whisperia

    He mostly just linked to photos that weren’t very good, so I’d say his feed was largely a waste of time anyway. No loss here.

    And this happened two days ago…a little late to the party, EW.

  • casey

    seriously. i was a HUGE fan of his but his tweets lessened my liking of him. they made me feel stupid because 99% of what he was posting i didn’t “get”

    • LOL

      There was nothing to get. It was just a series of meaningless stuff.

      • casey

        that’s what they seemed like to me but i guess i just figured that he’s all artsy and whatnot that they were just above me. haha who knows

  • John Nalley

    Completely unfunny at the Oscars, so I can only imagine how boring his tweets were. Try @JohnANalley if you want funny tweets. I won’t post videos or links. An occasional inappropriate Kidz Bop song maybe.

  • Tvcon

    Another celebrity who got pissed that he reputation has gone down the toilet. He apparenlty has said social media is dead. For someone that is a PH.D student he isn’t very smart.

  • Mr. Holloway

    Yikes…judging by these comments, that sound I hear is the tide turning against Franco.

    Personally, I can forgive him bombing at the Oscars…I just didn’t love him acting all pi$$y when people rightly criticized his bad performance.

  • MJ

    Hopefully Franco’s just taking some time off from tweeting because it’s close to the end of the semester. He is doing double duty at RISD and Yale after all. But I liked seeing his artwork and videos and I hope he’ll continue posting later.

  • Jessica

    James needs time off…I don’t know how he does movies and goes to school fulltime…he needs the break

  • Devin

    Thank god. Hopefully that means we will hear less about him. There was a time when I liked him…but that seems like a different lifetime. Most annoying celebretard currently trolling the earth.

  • Devilkin

    This is not even close to the first time James has quit something prematurely. He lets press releases go out saying he’s building Noah’s Arc, or whatever, when in truth he’s signed on to some project or another… Good riddance.

  • E-rock

    I have to disagree with these comments. I liked him sharing his life & thoughts online. And if you followed his Twitter at all, then you noticed one of his pictures got pulled by WhoSay/Twitter. @JamesFrancoNews says he’s removed himself from Facebook and Twitter… and will return with his own website from which to share his material — uncensored. Looking forward to seeing whether he’s constructing something “outside the box.”
