Actress Lena Dunham does not “look at Twitter anymore” and admits she hired someone to write her tweets.
The “Girls” creator and star said she recently stopped managing her account because she online bullies were creating some “cancerous stuff inside” her, said the Hollywood Reporter.
“I don’t look at Twitter anymore. I tweet, but I do it through someone else. I don’t even know my Twitter password, which may make me seem like I’m no longer a sort of genuine community user. I really appreciate that anybody follows me at all, and so I didn’t want to cut off my relationship to it completely, but it really, truly wasn’t a safe space for me,” Dunham, 29, said.
“Even if you think, like, ‘Oh I can read, like, 10 mentions that say I should be stoned to death’ and kind of, like, laugh and move on. That’s verbal abuse. Those aren’t words that should be directed at you ever. And so, for me personally, it was safer to stop (using Twitter).”
