Megan Fox is not a fan of Twitter, it seems.

The actress has decided to ditch Twitter. Perhaps she is taking a cue from Manolith’s own Brandon Dimmel — the world might be a better place if we all did. The Twitter life of Fox lasted a mere 13 tweets: the new mother offered her first tweet just a few days into 2013 and her last tweet some five days later. After a few days of silence, she offered an update to her 33 million Facebook subscribers:

“Some of you may or may not have noticed by now that my Twitter account has been shut down. I thought that 2013 might be the year that I finally blossomed into a social networking butterfly, but as it turns out, I still hate it. Love you guys but I will just never be that girl. Facebook is as much as I can handle. I’m sorry.”

Fox has bigger balls than a lot of dudes. This chick calls it as she sees it — and states it succinctly. The power of her statements most often comes in the form of a verbal one-inch punch.

Is that a bit much, lauding her for quitting Twitter? To get specific, she started to earn mucho respect when she slammed the Transformers franchise after the second film, and sent poor Michael Bay into a tailspin. That guy needed (still needs) to be slapped around for the travesty known as Pearl Harbor. (The movie, not the actual Japanese attack on the naval base.)

Fox does have a point. When you’re as visible as she is, what’s the point of Twitter? Sharing photos? Clever blurbs? Retweeting the statuses of polite beggars? It seems Pinterest has become a much better platform for sharing.

However, you do have to tip your hat to Twitter for the work it does inspiring feuds. It just doesn’t get better than a good Twitter feud. Too bad we’ll never be able to see Megan Fox go a few rounds with other celebs who just don’t give a f*ck.
