For this reason alone, J. Cole, who has over 2 million followers on twitter, is not about that ‘tweeting’ life. During an interview with Bootleg Kev of Las Vegas’ Hot 97.5, he recently explained that he has stopped tweeting because he feels as though a lot of his peers, even some big name artists that he respects, are starved for attention on the social network.
“I’m not on Twitter no more, I’m not doing it and I’m not going to. I’m sitting and on watching all these artists who I respect — some of them are big artists — on Twitter fighting for attention. Every tweet is like, I’m looking for attention. Retweet me!”
