Now that Chrissy Teigen has put the kibosh oh her Twitter account, she’s using another social media platform to explain her decision.

After reiterating her previous statement that the Twitter “no longer serves me as positively as it does negatively,” the television personality and bestselling cookbook author took to Instagram to stress that it was “absolutely NOT Twitter’s fault.”

“I believe they do all they can to combat relentless bullying, and honestly, it’s not the bullying!!” she revealed to her 34.4 million IG followers. “You guys have no idea how much they’ve reached out and worked with my team and me personally. It’s not the platform. It’s not the ‘bullying.’”

“And it’s not the trolls. The trolls I can deal with, although it weighs on you,” she clarified. “It’s just me.”

“I have to come to terms with the fact some people aren’t gonna like me. I hate letting people down or upsetting people and I feel like I just did it over and over and over,” Teigen furthered. “Someone can’t read that they disappointed you in some way every single day, all day without physically absorbing that energy. I can feel it in my bones.”

On Wednesday, the former Sports Illustrated magazine swimsuit model’s account was deleted and all links to her previous tweets direct to an error page declaring “this account doesn’t exist.”

Before she parted ways with the Jack Dorsey-founded platform, Teigen racked up almost 14 million followers, including high profile accounts including President Biden’s POTUS account. The 35-year-old mother of two previously drew ire from conservatives and Donald Trump, who ended up blocking her.

Through social media, Teigen shared heartbreaking and uplifting life events on the account, including her recent miscarriage and the births of her and husband John Legend’s two children, Luna in 2016 and Miles in 2018.
