Report: Manziel to stop tweeting

Johnny Manziel has connected with plenty of receivers.
He’s now disconnecting from his followers.

The Texas A&M Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback has decided
to stop tweeting, an obvious disappoint to his 332,000-plus
followers and a growing cult of those who enjoyed his antics,
opinions and celebrity.

“I’ve kind of just shut it all off,” Manziel told
“With how the media has been with me for a while, I just shut
everything off. As of [Monday], I said I was done with [Twitter]
for however long. It’s fun to have, but it can get to be
distracting at points.”

The decision came shortly after a minor incident at
Saturday’s practice blew up. Manziel threw an interception
and shoved a graduate assistant. It wasn’t much, but when you
are the Heisman Trophy winner it became a story.

“I’m surprised to [see] how the attention has continued through
the offseason,” Manziel said. “I guess I thought it would die off
and slow down a little bit, but it really hasn’t.”
