R&B singer Chris Brown has officially made his way back onto Twitter after deleting his page last week and briefly posted a steamy image of ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
Although the photo has since been removed, it featured Chris Breezy smoking a cigarette with RiRi next to him.
Brown made no comment about his hiatus from the service that has bedeviled him in the past? or about his return, but simply posted a black and white Instagram pic of himself with a satisfied look and a cigarette hanging out of his mouth as Rihanna lounged in the background in a bra and underwear, wrapped up in a camouflage blanket. The caption of the picture was, “What would music today sound like if these kids didn’t exist?” At press time, Brown hadn’t posted any new tweets, and the only message on the page was, “Keep it here for all things Chris Brown, updates from the tour and more … #CarpeDiem.” The background of the page featured images from Brown’s current tour and noted that @chrisbrown hasn’t tweeted yet, with no links to his previous Twitter history.

His Twitter return made weekend headlines on Sunday (December 2).
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)
He initially pulled the plug on social networking just a week ago.
“I look old as (expletive)! I’m only 23…,” Brown wrote. Johnson, who has more than 308,000 followers, replied: “I know! Being a worthless piece of (expletive) can really age a person.” Her comment was retweeted more than 3,400 times. That set off Brown, who’s gained a reputation as a hothead after beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and pleading guilty in a felony assault case. The pair has apparently patched up their relationship, and reportedly spent Thanksgiving together, although Brown continues to be plagued by the domestic violence rap. His latest Twitter feud with Johnson may only add more fuel to the fire. In response, Brown tweeted that she was engaging in oral sex with him, and later wrote, “Thanks HO!” when she corrected him about a misspelling. (New York Daily News)
Coincidentally, Brown talked about taking a more mature approach with Twitter prior to his explicit feud going down.
“I haven’t been as mature and thought out in the past, so, me growing now, it’s showing my progression,” Brown said in an interview. “I used to use my Twitter account to vent, but now I mostly use it for marketing and promotions. Even if the media asks me something, if it’s cool then it’s, ‘What’s up?’ But if it’s anything that’s too negative, I don’t care to respond.” (XXL Magazine)
