I haven’t quit Twitter, says Ed Sheeran (on Instagram)

Reports of Ed Sheeran’s departure from Twitter have been overstated. He’s still there, he’s just not engaging with it. He’s still tweeting, just not looking at any of your replies. Because you – and I mean you personally, you reading this now – are awful.

As previously reported, Sheeran told The Sun: “There’s nothing but people saying mean things [on Twitter]. One comment ruins your day. That’s why I’ve come off it. The headfuck for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much”.

But he didn’t mean he’d come all the way off it, oh no. Sheeran may now have donned a metaphorical blindfold and earplugs, but he’s still holding a megaphone. So you can still get updates from Ed on Twitter, but every time you – and I mean you personally, you reading this now – respond to one of his tweets with “Come to Mexico!” or “Fuck off ginger cunt”, he’ll have no idea. And yet you still do it. Why?

Confirming all of this, Sheeran wrote in an update yesterday: “Loads of hoo-haa about me quitting stuff. I haven’t quit anything, I’m just not reading anything, except Harry Potter”.

Posting that¬†on Instagram¬†rather than Twitter didn’t really advance his claims much. He probably should have read back his post too, then I wouldn’t have had to fix his typos. But anyway, you – and I mean you personally, you reading this now – are just going to have to find another celeb to bother.
