The Daily Star quoted her as writing on her official site: "It breaks my spirit to hear that some of you feel neglected since I deleted my Twitter. It was a wonderful way to stay connected to you & I really felt like during that time we became very much like friends. I often complain to the ones closest to me that I don't seem to have much of a private life any more and part of that is my fault. How can I whine about my life being too public if I am the one telling the world what I am doing? I never want to quit entertaining - it is my life, my love, and my passion - but I can't have my personal life be other people's entertainment.
"Twitter is not the only thing I am cutting back on. This is not an attack against this particular site, I just think kids all over the world could maybe take a little vacation from Cyberspace. If we spent more time enjoying what we are doing besides tweeting about it, we would enjoy our lives a whole lot more."
The 16-year-old Cyrus also gave gossip a rest that she quit Twitter because her The Last Song co-star Liam Hemsworth wanted her to delete her page. She said: "Liam is a wonderful friend and he did not try to make me delete my page, he just helped me realize how much time I was wasting on that site."
