Herobrine shows a lot of characteristics of being a form of virus, such as manipulating game worlds, deleting threads and sending messages through the Minecraft Forums. Which is to say, moving in directions without physically moving, while not moving upwards.
He only means well, he's looking out for you, trying to warn you of the dangers you can't see. Like most ghosts, it is likely he simply has no use for most methods of transportation.
Herobrine seems able to drastically change his environments with no viable source of resources to do so.
Apple TV Edition. It was just a rumor started by some douche and then someone probably created a mod. Herobrine was first stated to have been removed in Beta 1.

He exhibits all the symptoms of a Creative player in the game. Copeland pretended to be shaken up in the chat, and later posted a message onto the forums , linking to the video to spread it around, in the hope to get similar reactions. It is unknown when exactly it happened in relation to Patimuss's video, but Copeland then posted links in chat, leading to http: It was only later that Herobrine grew in popularity, when the Brocraft streamer "Copeland" photoshopped Herobrine into several screenshots to show to his chat.
Due to increased drama surrounding the Herobrine page, a wiki administrator asked Notch over IRC if Herobrine would ever be added, to which Notch replied "i [sic] have no plans of adding herobrine as is , but I do like the rumors, haha".
One variation is based on pure community interpritation, while the other, based on the canon. This shows Notch has decided against adding Herobrine.
