The 26-year-old, who last sent out a tweet on 30 June, says just one mean comment could ruin his entire day.
He told The Sun: “I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it.
“I got on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter’s a platform for that. One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it.
“The head f
uckfor me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”
If you follow me or read our blog you’ll probably know that I quit Twitter in April. Here’s the blog post explaining it.
Ed’s account will now only be used to automatically send his Instagram posts. I have pondered doing something like this in the future. Maybe.
Here’s the thing though. I don’t like Ed Sheeran. When I say I don’t like him, I’m referring to his music. That should be obvious right? It’s just not my thing. What I don’t understand is, the leap from not being a fan to being abusive to the guy online.
I’ve not really missed Twitter. For selfish reasons I miss how it pushes people toward content. That’s been fascinating to assess since April. However, when stories like this one about Ed Sheeran break, I’m reminded that it was – at times – an awful factory of foul negativity.
That part I definitely do not miss. I don’t need it. Ed Sheeran definitely doesn’t need it either.
