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 ESPN.com.

“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.”
