Now, before you start in on us, let’s consider a couple things:

  1. First off, we are not saying this is on the level of DJ Snake’s social media meltdown, nor deadmau5’s.
  2. Any artist or person can stay off social media for however long they want and that is completely up to them.


3. Dillon Francis is a man known for his time on social media, and that’s where this gets strange.

As the story goes, a fan (or not really, if he made Dillon do this) complained to Dillon that he was posting news of his new “Say Less” music video too much. As anyone who works in social media knows, not everyone sees your posts. In fact, a fraction might. Dillon corroborated as much for us.

In response to the first fan’s teasing or complaining (we’re not sure which, the tweet was deleted), Dillon wrote, “Here how bout this….I’m gonna stop posting on everything for the rest of the year…. it’s been fun but I’m out.”

So far, it’s been 5 days and Dillon hasn’t posted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat. Bummer.

We’re extremely confident that Dillon won’t hold to this for the full year, but it’s unfortunate to see that it had to come to this at all in the first place.

For what it’s worth, the new @_diplo_ account had the perfect response, followed by Shaun Frank.
