Chrissy Teigen’s Twitter account has gone dark.

In a several-tweet thread to her 14 million followers Wednesday night, the model said goodbye to the social network, writing that her time spent on the site, “no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something.”

She began the missive by thanking her fans and praising what they had “created” on the website.

“Hey. For over 10 years, you guys have been my world,” she wrote.

“I honestly owe so much to this world we have created here. I truly consider so many of you my actual friends. But it’s time for me to say goodbye.”

As the thread continued, Teigen said she was “deeply bruised” from her time online and hadn’t learned how to “block out the negativity.”

“My desire to be liked and fear of pissing people off has made me somebody you didn’t sign up for, and a different human than I started out here as!,” Teigen, who’s married to John Legend, continued.

Teigen announced no intentions to quit Instagram, where she has 34 million followers — and where she made waves last week by posting a topless pic featuring her toddler.

In February, she asked President Joe Biden to unfollow her on Twitter so she could “flourish.”

Soon after bidding her followers farewell, her Twitter
