Disturbed’s David Draiman Deletes His Twitter Account: “I’m Done With Social Media”


Disturbed frontman David Draiman has followed Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe and The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s Greg Puciato lead and waved goodbye to Twitter. Speaking of his now deleted account with 93x, he stated:

“I’m done with social media, personally. And it had nothing to do with the record. It happened to be coincidental, but it had nothing to do with the record. Social media has become a playground for trolls, a playground for these people who prey on one another. You can’t get anything decent done on there anymore; you just open yourself up to constant attack. And I’m just done with it. I’m done with it. I hope that the couple of years of my being as involved in it as I was meant something to people. I hope that they gleaned something from it, or took something away from it, or at least were entertained or something, because, now, I’m becoming a recluse. At the end of the day, what people want from me is to get up there on that stage and make them feel powerful and give them a release for an hour and a half or two hours every once in a while. And if I’m still able to do that, hopefully I’m still making people happy.”

Draiman hasn’t completely expunged social media from his life at this point however, as his Facebook remains open, though not necessarily active. Disturbed will return with a new album titled “Immortalized” on August 21st.
