Lupe Fiasco has quit Twitter, announcing that he is leaving the social networking service earlier this morning. The “Show Goes On” rapper handed over his account to singer Nikki Jean, who is promoting her new project Pennies in a Jar.

“I’m quitting twitter. it was fun while it lasted…,” wrote Lu. “thanks for the support on #lasers and i will see you all on the road soon… […] don’t forget… Love Always Shines Everytime Remember 2 Smile. […] u know what??? i’m gonna let @NIKKIJEAN takeover my twitter — go get that album.”

Shortly thereafter, Nikki commandeered the account, thanking her big brother and promising “he won’t be gone for too long.”
