After nearly a decade of being a regular presence on the platform, Teigen has drawn the curtain on her Twitter personality. Posting a series of tweets, she stated multiple reasons for the move.

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!
