We recently told you about Twitter, the social networking site where people can miniblog endlessly the details of their personal or professional pursuits. Well, we evidently have its first celebrity relationship casualty. It’s reported that the reason that Jennifer Aniston broke up with John Mayer is because after telling her that he was too busy to get in touch with her, she discovered that he had been updating Twitter hourly. A source says, "John suddenly stopped calling her or returning her emails and when she would finally catch up with him, he'd say: 'I've been so busy with work. I'm sorry I haven't had time to call you back. Jen was fuming. There he was, telling her he didn't have time for her and yet his page was filled with Twitter updates. Every few hours, sometimes minutes, he'd update with some stupid line. And in her mind, she was like 'He has time for all this Twittering, but he can't send me a text, an email, make a call?'"
Reports say that Mayer made no excuses about his Tweeting when confronted, with the source adding, "He didn't even deny it. He knew he was avoiding her. So when she called him on it and ended things, he just said OK, and that he was sorry it didn't work out." Evidently, immediately after the breakup occurred, Mayer updated his Twitter status to read, 'This heart didn't come with instructions.'
The couple has broken up many times but we assumed all was well after they walked the Oscars red carpet and shared a romantic Valentine’s vacation together. However, it appears that there was Tweeting coming between them and we don’t mean of the love bird variety. If this is true, I think we can all safely say that if he’s not calling you back, he’s just not that into, Jen.
