LOS ANGELES: Chrissy Teigen has deleted her popular Twitter account, saying the site no longer plays a positive role in her life.
For over 10 years you guys have been my world, Teigen wrote to her 13.7 million followers Wednesday night. But its time to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think thats the right time to call something.”
Teigens account was popular for its mix of jokes about her husband John Legend and their children, their playful banter on the site, funny observations about assorted topics and fierce retorts for those she disagreed with or who criticised her.
That reputation is at odds with who she really is, the model and cookbook author wrote.
My life goal is to make people happy, she wrote. The pain I feel when I dont is too much for me. Ive always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but Im just not.
Last year, Teigen shared the heartbreak of a miscarriage on the site, posting an anguished picture of her in the hospital. Another image showed her and Legend grieving over a bundle cradled in her arms.
While her candor about the loss of their son won praise, some criticised her for putting such painful moments on social media.
She wrote Wednesday that shes experienced so many attacks from low-follower accounts that shes deeply bruised.
In one of her final posts, she told her followers to never forget that your words matter.
Teigens Instagram account, with more than 34 million followers, remains active as does Legends Twitter account, with 14 million followers. AP
