Hailey Bieber deactivated her twitter account last summer, and in a new video on her YouTube channel with Dr. Jessica Clemons, she explains why.
According to Hailey, “I don’t even have a Twitter anymore because there was never really a time where I would go on there and it didn’t feel like it was in a very toxic environment…The thought of even opening the app gives me such bad anxiety that I feel like I’m gonna throw up.”
She continued, “I want everyone to like me, it’s like, my downfall at times and I’m working through it. I think one thing I’ve had to come to the conclusion of is trying not to feel like I owe everybody an explanation or owe anybody anything, and really just try to correct what I need to correct personally behind closed doors.”
She has however created new social media rules for herself, limiting her use of instagram to the weekends. She also changed her personal settings so that only people she knows can comment on her posts. “When I look at my comments now, when I put up a photo or a video or anything, I know it’s only going to be people that I know are only going to be positive and only going to be encouraging and uplifting,” she shared.
Hailey isn’t the only one to leave Twitter behind. Last week, Chrissy Teigen said goodbye to the platform, explaining she also felt negativity on the app, while noting that her decision “is absolutely NOT Twitter’s fault.” She also praised the site for the work they do to fight against cyberbullying.
