Chrissy Teigen announced on Wednesday that she has decided to quit Twitter, a popular micro-blogging site. After a series of tweets announcing her departure from the social media site, Chrissy went on to delete her account. “Hey, For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends. But it’s time for me to say goodbye,” wrote the actress.
In a series of tweets, Chrissy expressed that her decision was partially because of the negativity on the platform. She shared, “This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something. My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don’t is too much for me. I’ve always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I’m just not. My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters.”
While signing off from the platform, Chrisst also revealed that she felt deeply bruised because of online negativity. “I encourage you to know and never forget that your words matter. No matter what you see, what that person portrays, or your intention. For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly, deeply bruised.”
