So we don't have to listen to the boring drivel that comes out of her speaking orifice .
UK popstress Lily Allen will tweet no more after turning her back on Twitter and Facebook and ditching her PC, MacBook and BlackBerry, according to shocked UK news outlets. The chanteuse's last posting to Twitter was on 28 September, when she declared: "I am a neo-luddite, goodbye." Since then, she's reportedly offloaded all …
LOL she wants to blame the boyfriend for her absence from the web rather than take responsability for her blabbing about her earlyer piracy practices and holding her hands up.
she couldnt be bothered to even actually research the different copywrite points of view or hold a reasoned argument against her new found yet faulty PR copywrite evandalism...
"Yesterday it was revealed that, despite her calls for tougher anti-piracy legislation, Lily Allen herself created illicit mixtapes full of copyrighted music ..."

I have no choice, my job requires me to have much of this, but I've found Twitter, Qetchup and other social networking sites to be a venue for huge amounts of noise that it's impossible to service.
Besides that none of them are substitutes for real life. Want to talk to a friend, go down the pub and buy them a drink, it's much more satisfying.
Great, she has a new boyfriend. Since most of her tracks seem to be about how bad her boyfriends are, I can't wait for her next single playing all over the radio in her iconic tuneless dirge.
I'm still waiting for the mothership to return and take the whole Allen clan back to their home planet.
You see these sad fucks everywhere, glued to their mobiles as they walk along the street, standing in a queue, fiddling with their phones. Trying talking to the people around you. Get a life. Twitter? sad moronic idiots following the regular outpourings of another moron. I swear that in years to come they will look back and wonder at it, just as we do with people who took radium for health benefits.
Funny, I didn't even know she existed. Perhaps you didn't 'have' to listen after all? Hmm...
On a more abstract note, dropping twitter seems reasonable, but tossing the PC and cell along with it seems a bit extreme. I'm guessing that as a 'pop songstress' she's going to find those items were quite useful to her career... though if you're a really big deal I suppose you could have your agent deal with all the BS and only need one point of communication.
Got there before me. Personnaly i think if NuLabour are going to force though laws without reviews or any sort of common sense then Twitter should be banned by law (no i don't want to know that you just made a cup of tea).
Saying that the day they switch the Orwellian inspired interweb watching machines on every single person that has a interweb connected PC should sign up to twit and just leave a book on the keyboard, should give the whole system a power test trying to record serveal million twats(?)/twits(?) (delete as appropriate) a second.

1) Man, I don't care!!!
2) If she succeeds, so what?
3) It takes light a year to get from this news to my giving a d@mn.
4) Wild horses on their bended knees couldn't make me interested in her or this.
5) Couldn't she at least take out other media wh0res with her in collateral damage?
Some of you may not care about "poor little Lily" well neither do I, but there are a lot of individuals out there that do, just as there are people that like Miley Cyrus. These are mainly teens, and a good proportion of users that make up places like FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter, and other "social" networks are teens, so when they see their role model leave the site, they may be inclined to as well.
If we could get a dozen or so more big named celebrities leaving these sites, they would die out, which could hopefully have the effect of forcing people back into Pubs and coffee shops to do their socialisation.
Thank you, Lily, now go and convince your other "friends and followers" to do the same thing!
All this means is that her agent has noticed her sales her down because she can't string two coherent words together...
By restricting her to media in which what she says can be vetted first they can ensure they don't lose any more profit from their puppet than necessary.
Shame she's not smart enough to see it and rebel, we could do with a laugh.
