Well, that was quick. It was only 6 days ago when we began to speculate about the length of Chris Brown’s planned absence from Twitter (after his fallout with comedian Jenny Johnson) but never fear–he’s back. By Sunday morning (December 2) the singer had reactivated his account.
What he didn’t do though, was send out a tweet, so now his fans and critics wait patiently to see what comes next. Since he’s been unable to express himself via Twitter over the past few days, Brown has gone heavy with his Instagram usage instead. Rihanna has really taken the charge in terms of tweeting suggestive photos of the two, but he joined the fun today with a shot of them lounging, captioned, “What would music today sound like if these kids didn’t exist?”
In an interview conducted before his most recent Twitter beef, Brown seemed to have a good handle on things. “I haven’t been as mature and thought out in the past, so, me growing now, it’s showing my progression,” he told XXL. “I used to use my Twitter account to vent, but now I mostly use it for marketing and promotions. Even if the media asks me something, if it’s cool then it’s, ‘What’s up?’ But if it’s anything that’s too negative, I don’t care to respond.”
He said that he’s developed thicker skin over the past few years. “In the beginning, I used to be hot. I’m normal. I’m human, so if anybody says something that’s a lie, I’m numb to it. I’ve smartened up.”
