Miley Cyrus is a Twitter quitter

Miley Cyrus quits Twitter

More than a million Miley Cyrus fans are missing out on gossip about the star after she stopped using the website Twitter.

The 16-year-old was one of the most followed celebrities, with fans all over the world following her.

It seems Miley's boyfriend Liam Hemsworth may be behind her decision to quit the micro-blogging service.

One of Miley's final tweets said Liam didn't have a Twitter account and asked her "to delete mine with good reason".

A lot of fans are unhappy that Miley has stopped using Twitter, especially as she seems to have made the decision because her Aussie actor boyfriend asked her.

"Do you ever have those days that you just wanna SCREAM! Today is my day! Grrr!!!
"Had my nightly cup of tea & now its time to go off into some crazy dreamland!"
"For all the people calling me the "next Britney" THANK U. I couldn't ask for a better compliment : )"

Some fans have already started a campaign to get her back online - using Twitter.

Fans are including the phrase #comebackmiley in their tweets making it a trending topic - that's something that LOADS of people are talking about.

But she's not going to see those messages unless she rejoins the service.

Perhaps Miley will get the messages from other members of her family, as some of them - dad Billy Ray, sisters Noah and Brandi and brother Trace - are still tweeting.
