“The reasons are simple, I started tweetin’ ‘bout pimples.”
Let’s cast our minds back to October 2009. A simpler time – The Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” was dominating the charts, the iPhone 3 had just been released, and (500) Days Of Summer was in cinemas.
“But what was Miley Cyrus doing then?”, I hear you ask. Well, the third season of Hannah Montana was airing, and she’d just finished filming The Last Song with future fiancé Liam Hemsworth.
Look at that belt. Extremely 2009.

But more importantly, she was making history. Miley decided she’d had enough of Twitter, and in doing so, created literally the best video that has ever been put on the internet.
And no, I don't mean figuratively. I mean literally.
Yep, Miley quit Twitter and then released a one minute and 46 second-long rap explaining why.
I could go through and describe it all for you but please, please just watch it. This is as iconic as they come.
My personal fave line? “No more emo quotes or fake feuds with Demi, I'm done with all that, and the truth is I'm too busy.”
It’s also got some pretty sick iMovie transitions in there.
She explains her decision with the line: “Everything that I type and everything that I do. All those lame gossip sites take it and they make it news.”
Which I guess… is exactly what I'm doing now. Huh. What a world.
Also I’m pretty sure that the first half is filmed in a public toilet? Good stuff.
