Has James Franco Deleted His Social Networking Persona?

"Leading up to the Oscars, I couldn't hear enough about how, 'Oh, people don't care about the Oscars anymore, it's dead, it's old, it's at the end of a long awards season, who cares about it?'" James Franco told David Letterman in an interview that will air Friday night. "Well, as soon as you don't host the way you want to, they suddenly care and they won't shut up about it! Suddenly, I can't hear enough about a show they don't care about!" Perhaps Franco has found a way to stop hearing about it: The embattled Oscar host no longer has a Twitter account.


This could be a not-so-elaborate April Fools' Day prank. Or it could be the case of a star getting tired of the slings, arrows and misrepresentations that can occur in 140 character blasts. Either way, here's hoping Franco comes back to Twitter again soon -- at least to finish his autobiography.

Stay tuned...
