Chrissy Teigen's Twitter account has gifted the world with so many iconic moments over the years. From the time she discovered jacket potatoes, tweeted about Love Island, to giving her followers a behind-the-scenes look at Joe Biden's inauguration, Chrissy was one of Twitter's most beloved personalities.
In fact Chrissy was among the first group of people President Biden followed after he won the election and took over the @POTUS Twitter account.
But after more than a decade on the social media platform, the model and TV personality has quit Twitter.
Chrissy announced her departure in a Twitter thread addressed to her 13.7 million followers before she deleted her account. She 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," as reported by Variety.
"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.
Her final post said: "My life goal is to make people happy. The pain I feel when I don't is too much for me. I've always been portrayed as the strong clap back girl but I'm not.
"My desire to be liked and fear of pi**ing people off has made me somebody you didn't sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as! Live well, tweeters. Please know all I ever cared about was you!!!"
Though Chrissy's Twitter account gave us many iconic moments, she also used the platform to talk about the most personal moments in her life, including her marriage to musician John Legend and the miscarriage of their third child, whom they named Jack.
Chrissy has been very outspoken about the trolling and negative comments she received on Twitter and she would often clap back at them. Her final message before she left the app seems to suggest trolling was one of the reasons she decided to quit.
"For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly deeply bruised," she explained.
Chrissy joined Twitter in 2009. Fans will be pleased to know that she is still posting on her Instagram page and her YouTube channel is also active.
