Chrissy Teigen has announced she's deleting her Twitter account after 10 years on the social media platform.
The 35-year-old penned a lengthy post to her 13 million followers on her decision to walk away and has since deactivated her account.
"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 wrote prior to departing Twitter.
"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 just not."
The cookbook author, who is familiar with sparking Twitter controversy, shared how her "desire to be liked" has turned her into a different person.
"I encourage you to know and never forget that your words matter. No matter what you see, what that person portrays, or your intention. For years I have taken so many small, 2-follower count punches that at this point, I am honestly deeply bruised," she wrote.
"I have made my mistakes, throughout years and in front of hundreds of thousands, and been held accountable for them. I've learned an incredible amount here."
During her longtime on the platform, she admits she has "said f--ked up s--t and killed myself over it as much as you killed me. But one thing I haven't learned is how to block out the negativity."
"I'm just a sensitive s--t, okay!? I don't wanna be this way! I just am! But I love you guys and I cherish our time together, I truly do. I also hate you," she wrote.
The model has now deactivated her account, and all of her past Twitter activity has been erased. It's not clear if the move is permanent.
Teigen's remarks come amid backlash she recently copped for collaborating with Kris Jenner on a line of plant-based cleaning products.
