Lupe Fiasco: ‘I’m Quitting Twitter’

Lupe Fiasco may have sent out his last tweet today. The “Show Goes On” rapper claims he’s done using the social networking website.

“i’m quitting twitter. it was fun while it lasted,” Lupe told his fans on Wednesday. “thanks for the support on #lasers and i will see you all on the road soon… don’t forget…Love Always Shines Everytime Remember 2 Smile….”

He turned over his account to singer-songwriter Nikki Jean, who was featured on his single “Hip-Hop Saved My Life.” She immediately began promoting her album and changed out the background to her album art.

“Big thank you to @LupeFiasco for supporting my record. He won’t be gone for too long.. Promise ;-)” she wrote, leaving the door open to his return.

Lupe is not the first artist to leave Twitter. Kid Cudi and Cassie are among those who deleted their accounts, only to start new pages months later.
