Model and wife of John Legend, Chrissy Teigen announced Wednesday evening that she is deleting her Twitter account. Teigen is known for her witty responses and ‘clap backs’ but in a series of tweets, she expressed the platform now no longer serves happiness.

Before deactivating her account Teigen wrote, “Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world. I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends.”

She went on to elaborate on her decision.

“But it’s time for me to say goodbye. This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something,” Teigen continued.
