NEW YORK — Most parents want their kids to twitter less, but not Billy Ray Cyrus.
The country music star is urging daughter Miley Cyrus to return to Twitter. The 16-year-old pop star quit the microblogging site earlier this week, puzzling her fans. She had more than 1.1 million followers on the site.
Her father tweeted Thursday that Miley “can’t leave everyone now” and said “we r countin on u.”
Miley Cyrus’ account is no longer active. In one of her last posts, she wrote that Liam Hemsworth, her co-star in the upcoming film “The Last Song,” wanted her to delete her Twitter account “with good reason.”
Publicists for Cyrus and her father haven’t returned requests for comment.
