Reason Why Actors And Actresses Leave Twitter
It is increasingly common that when searching for our favorite actors and actresses on social networks, they have a presence on Instagram, but not on Twitter . Hopefully, some keep their accounts, even if they are in semi-abandoned conditions. A progressive star flight for a few years and whose motive we find in the constant controversies .
The uncontrolled glare of the debates on Twitter is a constant in the social network, where trending topics can be our best allies or the accommodation of a horde of haters. Some small communities like the cinephile have found a remarkable place in this network, but not all have felt equally well received.
From Millie Bobby Brown to Daisy Ridley, through James Franco or Alec Baldwin, there are many stars who, when speaking out on a certain current issue, have gotten into trouble, arousing the unparalleled anger of those present. Something that national interpreters like Omar Ayuso ( Elite ) or directors and screenwriters like Los Javis ( Poison ) have not gotten rid of .
The importance of mental health
The jokes of the tweeters protected under the invisibility of false profiles have put personalities like Zelda , the daughter of Robin Williams , who in 2014 closed her account overwhelmed by mockery about the death of her father. However, it would end up returning to the social network, which despite its enormous defects continues to hook users. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg for many film industry professionals who decided to leave Twitter.

Daisy Ridley: “I have managed to separate my personal life from my professional life well, partly probably because I am not on social media . ” The Star Wars actress left Twitter and Instagram in 2016 after constant attacks by the fandom. ” The statistics linking them to anxiety are terrifying. I have friends completely addicted to their phone who have suffered from this problem. “
James Franco : the actor left Twitter in 2011 harassed by the companies he worked with. ” Social media is over. I thought this was my Twitter and I could do whatever I wanted, but certain companies I work with contacted me (to talk) about what I wrote . “

Millie Bobby Brown: the young woman left Twitter in 2018 after a meme of hers was used to accuse her of homophobic, something that the Stranger Things actress did not like at all . Right now, his account is activated again, but he’s only tweeted a couple of comments over the years.

Will Poulter: “In light of my recent experiences, I choose to take a step back, in a way, from Twitter,” confirmed the protagonist of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch in 2019, who later returned with a low profile. “As we all know, there is a balance to be struck in our social media engagements .
There are positives to enjoy and unavoidable negatives that are best avoided. It is a balance that I have struggled with for a while and in the interests of my health. . I feel it’s time to change my relationship with social networks. “

Kelly Marie Tran: The Star Wars actress is probably one of those who has suffered the most from the ire of fans from a galaxy far, far away on social media. “We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with so many stimuli and we are not aware of the ways in which it affects us.
I knew that the most important thing was to protect my mental health and make a space where I felt that I could create again and where I could go back to being an artist , which for a while I didn’t know if I could do it again. “

Stephen Fry: the V for Vendetta actor decided to also leave social networks due to the constant burden of negative feedback from followers. “The pool is stagnant. It’s foamy, overgrown, and full of broken glass, sharp stones, and slimy garbage. If you don’t watch yourself, with every move you’ll end up cut, broken, bruised, or confused. Even if you get past the sharp rocks, you’ll soon feel like there are too many s “, pointed out a metaphorical interpreter.
In the same way, James Wan for the criticisms of Aquaman , Ruby Rose for those of Batwoman or Alec Baldwin after a joke about Gillian Anderson’s accent in The Crown decided to leave Twitter at some point. The same path followed forever (or momentarily) by The Wicther showrunner Lauren Hissrich , Watchmen screenwriter Damon Lindelof , Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson (“Twitter is hell”) or actors like Simon Pegg, Michael Rooker , Hayley Atwell, Louis CK or Demi Lovato, among many others.
Twitter Spain is not spared
“That there are criticisms in the networks is nothing new, for everything. I have found myself at a time in my life in which I am going to buy bread and there are criticisms even for that,” Javier Calvo pointed out at the end of June in his visit to El Hormiguero . Although his partner and regular collaborator, Javier Ambrossi, transferred responsibility to the media for this fact, Calvo stressed the relevance of each one’s role in social networks.
“It is also my responsibility to put a tweet saying ‘you are criticizing me’. I don’t have to listen to it and make it bigger either . ” Calvo’s account was disabled from Twitter before the premiere of Drag Race Spain (a program of which he is a judge), and he pointed out how good he felt at that time for not being able to access his account. Despite everything, both continue to be very active on Instagram.
One of the last actors to leave Twitter has been Omar Ayuso ( Elite ) , who asked followers to be more careful due to the safety distance and came into conflict with other Spanish interpreters. Tired of the “absurd controversy” that angered the actor, he left the social network.
Why don’t they leave Instagram?
Does this mean that there are no reviews on Instagram? Not much less. Candela Peña’s recent complaints about the death threats to her son or the controversy that accused Paco León and Cecilia Suárez of being racists show otherwise.
Some stars like Michaela Coel ( I could destroy you ) or Daisy Ridley ( Star Wars ) also left this social network jaded by the constant controversies. However, the operation between the two social networks is very different …
In the case of Instagram, the advertising content and the presence of the brands is much more remarkable and evident . A network in which many interpreters become improvised influencers, promoting various company products in exchange for high monetary figures. An opportunity to also promote your own image and your audiovisual projects. In addition, the options of the application itself allow the possibility of not receiving direct messages , which facilitates the blocking of destructive comments.
Similarly, actors and actresses are not forced to comment on all current issues to avoid negative comments due to the absence of an opinion . One of the biggest problems they have when talking about topics they do not know and that cause them to end up screwing up.
This does not mean that they do not promote their social commitments such as feminism, the LGTBI collective or disadvantaged groups, but that they have the option of being selective. Be that as it may, Instagram has managed to host Hollywood stars and homelands, who are enjoying the social network right now. Will Twitter ever get back to its initial glory?
