As much as I’m sure former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o would love to stop drawing attention to himself, he’s back in the news now after deleting his Twitter account during last Sunday’s Super Bowl.
A source told ESPN.com the former Notre Damelinebacker will be off Twitter for an indefinite period of time to prepare for the NFL draft. Twitter accounts that are deleted can be reactivated by that person.
Before it was deleted, Te’o’s Twitter bio included a quote from French author Alexandre Dumas in his book, The Count of Monte Cristo: “Life is a storm …You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.”
The quote certainly mirrored Te’o’s life over the past month.
Now that Te’o and his fake girlfriend Lennay Kukua are no longer together, he doesn’t need Twitter.
