It was the place where she wrote about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, sadness and her love of "rainbows, John Lennon, and Franklin, Tennessee." But now it's gone!

On Wednesday, Miley Cyrus deleted her Twitter account, a frequently updated and refreshingly frank portal into her daily life that was followed by some 2 million people. Did she do it for love?

In her last Tweet, Cyrus wrote that her reported boyfriend (and co-star in the upcoming film "The Last Song") Liam Hemsworth didn't have a Twitter account, and was encouraging her to get rid of hers. "FYI Liam doesn't have a twttr & he wants ME 2 delete mine w/ gd reason" were her exact words, and shortly thereafter, she pulled the plug. Her @MileyCyrus name disappeared from the site (and so did @MommyTish, the Twitter handle used by her mother). And then, the deluge ...

In the aftermath, Cyrus' fans made their displeasure known, flooding Twitter with pleas for her return with the hashtag "#mileycomeback" (which at press time was still the #1 trending topic on the site) and writing 140-or-less missives like "TWITTER SUCKS WITHOUT MILEY :(" and "please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please please #mileycomeback."

Perhaps not coincidentally, in the hours following Cyrus' disappearance, Twitter also ground to a near-halt.

Of course, now that she's left the site, dozens of Twit-izens stepped in to fill the void, creating fake Cyrus handles that all claim to be legit.

At press time, a spokesperson for Cyrus had not responded to MTV News' request for comment on the situation, nor did she verify whether any of the new Cyrus accounts are actually maintained by the singer.

However, Cyrus' sister Brandi and brother Trace were still tweeting at press time.
