James Franco Is Off Twitter [Update]

When a celebrity decides to leave Twitter, it's usually preceded by some attention-getting build-up (like with the floundering Amanda Bynes) or, you know, death (we must accept the fact that Elizabeth Taylor's final tweet will always be about Kim Kardashian). Not so with James Franco: A month and a half after he joined the social-networking service, Franco unceremoniously deleted his Twitter account today. (Is it an April Fools' prank? Somehow, we think the image-defying Franco would have gone out with a surreal splash if that were so.) At least we'll always have his hand-drawn comics, cat pictures, and feuds with Bruce Vilanch to remember him by. UPDATE: Or maybe he's just gone private? [James Franco/Twitter via Movieline]
