After years of not getting involved in social media Garth Brooks finally hit the “Twitterverse” and Facebook a couple of weeks ago. And, while some may see his late arrival as a resistance to technology, he says he had other reasons for not jumping into the pool.
“Well up ’til August of this year, you’ve gotta remember, I was in my children’s life. That was everything. And, no offense, I didn’t feel it was right to share that.”
While some celebrities have other people running their Twitter accounts, he assures that all of his tweets come from him. “I think it’s kind of dangerous to have someone else do it for you. I just don’t like somebody else speaking for me.”
Garth admits that he does have a team showing how to use the account right now, but he only wants that to be temporary. “The truth is, I want to get to where I can walk on my own and kind of do it myself.”
