Chrissy Teigen talked about her decision to leave Twitter. The model posted a screenshot of her deactivated Twitter account to Instagram. She had stepped away from the social media app just a day ago.
The cookbook author said it is true and that the platform no longer served her in a positive way. She shared that social media was more negative and that is the reason she stepped away. The model wrote, “It’s true! The platform no longer serves me as positively as it does negatively, so with that I bid you adieu.”
Chrissy further explained that she does not blame Twitter or the people sending her negative messages. She shared that it is because of her and that she has to come to terms with the fact that some people are not going to like her. The cookbook author wrote, “I hate letting people down or upsetting people and I feel like I just did it over and over and over. Someone can’t read that they disappointed you in some way every single day, all day without physically absorbing that energy. I can feel it in my bones.”

Chrissy wrote, “I have made my mistakes, throughout years and in front of hundreds of thousands, and been held accountable for them. I’ve learned an incredible amount here.” Adding that she has “said f— up s— and killed myself over it as much as you killed me.”
The model further shared that she has not learned how to block out the negativity. She said, “I’m just a sensitive s—, okay!? I don’t wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you.”
