John Mayer is losing friends - on the Internet at least.

A spokeswoman for Mayer says he has discontinued his Twitter account with his Battle Studies Tour "now at a close and a return to the studio planned."

Mayer had more than 3.7 million followers on the social networking website. He used the account to invite University of South Carolina fans to see a free show in February before the start of the tour to promote his album "Battle Studies."

An e-mailed statement says Mayer continues to communicate with fans through his blog, where the singer/songwriter wrote Sunday, "Time to (try to) disappear for a while. Love you guys. A lot."
