Negativity toward Chrissy Teigen leads model to leave Twitter

The model, television personality, and wife of singer John Legend announced last night that she would be leaving the popular social media platform, Twitter, effective immediately. Teigen, who amassed an estimated 13.7 million followers since joining more than a decade ago, described his decision in a series of now-deleted tweets.
This is important because Chrissy has made a difference in her time on Twitter.
“Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe a lot to this world we have created here. I really do consider many of you my true friends,” she wrote.
Over the course of her time on Twitter, Teigen notably participated in several memorable exchanges with other users, including former President Donald Trump, who eventually blocked her. She also shared an intimate look at her personal life, often posting photos of her family, even documenting the painful experience of losing her son, Jack, amid pregnancy complications last year.
Chrissy Teigen was the target of an overwhelming amount of cyberbullying. Pizzagate conspirators routinely accused her and her husband of running a nonexistent pedophile ring at a Washington, D.C. pizzeria. Teigen also said last year that she had to block nearly a million followers after unfounded accusations of being involved with crimes of sex trafficking.
Finally, she said goodbye saying “But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as negatively, and I think it is the right time to call something “.
While the tweets are deleted, she did also post to her Instagram with the following caption:
“It’s true! The platform no longer serves me as positively as it does negatively, so with that I bid you adieu. But I want to say that this is absolutely NOT twitter’s fault – I believe they do all they can to combat relentless bullying, any honestly, it’s not the bullying!! You guys have no idea how much they’ve reached out and worked with my team and me personally. It’s not the platform. It’s not the “bullying”. And it’s not the trolls. The trolls I can deal with, although it weighs on you. It’s just me. I have to come to terms with the fact some people aren’t gonna like me. 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. And to the Q anon people who think I’m in Guantanamo Bay right now, lol. I saw “Q: into the storm” and saw what I’m working with here. And I, lol, I no longer care. Don’t flatter yourselves.”
