Earlier today we tried to figure out why deadmau5 removed all of his tweets from his Twitter account. There have been a number of speculations (including people who swear it has something to do with the Irish Republican Army), but he figured it made sense to hit up his Tumblr page to explain his choice, which seems to boil down to him removing things that upset him in life:
I’m no longer going to be managing my own twitter account for “deadmau5”. I’m going to let management deal with that account. My reasons are my own, not because of something i said, not because of this hilarious I.R.A. vs “ira” craic, not because of lady gaga’s infinite legions of brain dead fans. but as i said… reasons of my own.
Perhaps ill return to that in world as some reincarnation of sort, but for now, that’s off the table for me. I’ll continue to upload new music to my soundcloud, and the twitter account will point you in the right direction for the most recent happenings… but enough’s enough with living on twitter. Time to at least start by living in the studio making music without having to be force-fed stupid shit that annoys me, when all i’m trying to do is connect with fans.
as for the fans, thanks for all your continued support and understanding of my decision to personally unplug myself from the very thing that’s making me upset. As i’ve mentioned, the account will remain alive, and *my team* (yeah i went there) will keep you just as updated on the ongoings with new music and shit that actually matters.
To leave you with some good news, my new Tricaster arrives today. SO perhaps ill be streaming video with direct audio a lot more often.
thanks for having my back on this one.
Shouts to deadmau5 for doing what he feels is necessary, and keeping his eyes on the prize, which will end up being something that will make all of his fans happy: new music! And know that we’ll more than likely still receive updates via Tumblr and Facebook as well.
