Why did Johnny delete his Twitter account?
“He told me it’s not a priority and he’s trying to eliminate distractions,” Manziel spokeswoman Denise Michaels told Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com afterward.
Ari Fleischer, a White House press secretary under George W. Bush, agreed with Manziel’s assessment:
When you’re right, you’re right. Johnny Manziel is right. (I can’t believe i said that.) https://t.co/cBiuxlQj13
