David Draiman, best known as Disturbed‘s vocalist but also for his usage of all caps on Twitter, has nuked his feed from existence and claimed that he’s “done with social media.” Speaking with radio show 93x, he made the following statement:
I’m done with social media, personally. And it had nothing to do with the record. It happened to be coincidental, but it had nothing to do with the record. Social media has become a playground for trolls, a playground for these people who prey on one another. You can’t get anything decent done on there anymore; you just open yourself up to constant attack. And I’m just done with it. I’m done with it. I hope that the couple of years of my being as involved in it as I was meant something to people. I hope that they gleaned something from it, or took something away from it, or at least were entertained or something, because, now, I’m becoming a recluse. At the end of the day, what people want from me is to get up there on that stage and make them feel powerful and give them a release for an hour and a half or two hours every once in a while. And if I’m still able to do that, hopefully I’m still making people happy.
Well, it seems he’s joined the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s Greg Puciato and Lamb of God‘s Randy Blythe in erasing their presence on some parts of the net.
He’s not entirely done, however. You can still enjoy ALL CAPS over on Facebook, but the last update occurred on April 3rd of this year and, if this is any indication, there may not be more in the future.
