(Newser) – John Mayer may be a hardcore tweeter, but says Twitter is “inherently silly and it’s inherently dumb,” E! Online reports. “It’s one step away from sending pictures of your poop,” the singer/songwriter said. Why then, Mark Malkin asks, does he tweet? “I’ve always communicated at a high level as best I can, whether it’s Twitter, Napster or message boards,” Mayer noted.

“You do Twitter until everybody gets off of Twitter and it’s something else you go and try out,” added Mayer, setting off with 3,000 fans on a four-day concert cruise. On last year’s trip, he wore a “mankini” a la Borat. This year, he’ll sport an item that “is actually cut for a woman. I know this because the clasps go the other way and there’s a little bit of squeeze.”
