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 fuck for 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.
