R&B singer Chris Brown recently discussed his past issues with Twitter and why social networking platforms are not the best way for him to get messages out to the fans.
In Chris Breezy's perspective, he feels music is a stronger outlet to speak out instead of resorting to social sites.
"I detached myself from social media only because it just takes away the magic. Twitter is a good outlet for certain people, but I think for me and the message I'm trying to portray, it's all about the music, the magic, and the creativity of what I'm doing. If you show somebody how to do a magic trick, it's not a magic trick anymore." ("Ryan Seacrest")
Last month, a Brown rep stepped up to nix an alleged Instagram rant and blamed the social networking attack on an online user.
A user named ChrisRealBrown wrote the screed, which said, in part, "Telling me to ignore it is like telling me to walk around with a blindfold and stick earplugs in my ear... Im wise I can handle the hate but enough is enough, yo!!" In other places, the faux "Brown" complains, "Im a human being and I honestly think I deserve respect Im sick of being accused" and says, "A day in my shoes is a day in hell, believe it or not!" The quotes were widely distributed by major outlets on Wednesday. But they do NOT belong to Brown. A rep tells Gossip Cop exclusively, "It's fake. He currently doesn't have an Instagram."

A few weeks back, Brown closed down his Instagram account.
Chris Brown has reportedly shut down his profile on picture sharing website Instagram after coming under fire for comparing himself to Jesus Christ online. The Kiss Kiss hitmaker appeared to comment on his alleged altercation with fellow singer Frank Ocean on Sunday by uploading a picture of a painting depicting Jesus on the cross, along with the caption, "Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!" The move prompted a storm of criticism from his followers on the site, which links up to a user's account on Twitter.com, prompting Brown to reply, "Social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I'm detaching myself from that world." Users trying to access his account are now unable to view the page, which has been replaced with the message, "The user deleted his/her profile".

Late last year, Chris deleted his Twitter page but eventually came back.
Though there are no new tweets to announce his return, Chris Brown has quietly resurfaced after disappearing from Twitter following an ugly exchange with TV producer Jenny Johnson. Oddly, though some tweets have been deleted, several of the most vulgar are intact. We're not sure what message Brown or his management is trying to send by reactivating his account, but the presence of the Jenny Johnson tweets seems to show an apology isn't likely -- not that we were expecting one. At least Team Breezy is happy. (Twitchy)
