Singer Boy George has abandoned Twitter.com after he was bombarded by abusive spam messages.
The former Culture Club frontman is an avid tweeter and regularly keeps in touch with fans through the microblogging site.
But after his account was hit with a string of unsolicited tweets from abusive users, he has decided to stop tweeting until bosses rectify the issue.
He writes, "When twitter decides to help me with this spam situation I may return. Until then it's goodbye. You can ask twitter to help but I have???"
The star was left fuming earlier this month (Apr12) when an impostor set up a fake account in his name.
He ranted, "I will have them stopped! It's a f**king fake! F**k off! Yes, this is me, I hope the fake Boy George is getting all the spam!"
