Not just Musk: other celebrities who left social networks | Digital Trends Spanish


Public figures have an active presence on social networks; it’s a way to stay in touch with your followers and stay current.

That is why Elon Musk’s announcement to abandon Twitter “for a while” attracted so much attention, especially considering that the founder of Tesla was an active user of this platform.

However, the millionaire has not been the only one to leave the social network behind. In fact, there are several celebrities who have made this radical determination, and not only on Twitter.

Millie Bobby Brown

In 2018, the protagonist of Stranger things Millie Bobby Brown had to close her Twitter account after being the victim of false memes in which she was accused of offending the LGBT community.

Meghan markle

Before becoming the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle was an active Instagram user – in fact, she had a lifestyle blog.

However, once she announced her engagement to Prince Harry, she deactivated all of her social media accounts.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

In 2019, the Democratic congresswoman closed her Facebook account. In an interview, he stated that “social networks pose a risk to public health around the world,” explaining how they could increase cases of depression, anxiety and addiction.

Louis CK

The comedian closed his Twitter account, after noting that tweeting was a “disappointing” experience for him and that the platform was consuming too much and distracting people so that they could not really live the experiences.

Selena Gomez

The singer closed her Instagram account after being a victim of hackers, who entered his profile and shared intimate photos of Justin Bieber, his ex-boyfriend.

She restored the account, but acknowledges that she removes the app once a week “for mental health reasons.”

Dan Harmon

The television producer and screenwriter, co-creator of Rick and morty, deleted his Twitter in 2018, after an old video was published where he simulated that he sexually abused a toy doll.

Simon Pegg

The actor walked away from Twitter in 2014, tired of arguing and responding to his followers. He then explained that he wanted to spend more time on his work and less on chatting with his fans.
