Wondering why Piers Morgan hasn’t been as present on Twitter as of late? Turns out he’s taken a deliberate step back from the platform.
Hinting he may take a break from the social media site more so, the former Good Morning Britain presenter said that since decreasing his time on the platform he’s realised the kind of people who use it.
The journalist, who boasts a tidy following of 7.9million followers, is one of the more prolific celebrity users – be it sharing his thoughts on Meghan Markle, wider pop culture and politics, feuding with the world of celebs, Meghan Markle, ribbing Dan Walker, or even Meghan Markle.
However all that may be about to change.
Sharing an update on Thursday, Piers wrote: ‘When, as I’ve been doing these past few weeks, you spend a lot less time on Twitter, and a lot more time out & about in the real world, you realise just how many god-awful & unhinged people are on this platform.
‘I intend spending even less time in their putrid company.’
Much like we were all, ‘what does this MEAN, Morgan?’ his followers were also reacting to his message, with some echoing his sentiments.
One mused: ‘Twitter reflects the very worst of society for sure. Out in the real world, people are not at each other’s throats 24/7.’
He had his doubters, though, with one writing: ‘Why are you announcing this on Twitter, if you’re leaving, close the door on your way out,’ while another seemingly hadn’t noticed Piers has been scaling back his presence at all, replying: ‘Just the 14 posts in the last 24hrs, any chance you can scale it back a bit more?!’
Many of Piers’s fans may be feeling a little left in the cold, though, if he does pack up and leave Twitter, after the presenter sensationally quit GMB in March following his refusal to back down from comments made on the Duchess Of Sussex.
Never fear though, dear punters, you’ll still have his Dail Mail column, in which he went off on Snow White ‘wokies’ yesterday.
Should he say sayonara to the platform he wouldn’t be the first – even this year – after Chrissy Teigen recently quit after growing tired of the constant hate she received.
However, she later returned to Twitter only a few weeks later, proving it’s perhaps a feat easier said than done.
