Chrissy Teigen returns to Twitter: ‘It feels terrible to silence yourself’

The Queen of Twitter is back on her throne.

Chrissy Teigen has returned to Twitter after announcing three weeks ago that she was done with the social media platform for good. “Turns out it feels TERRIBLE to silence yourself and also no longer enjoy belly chuckles randomly throughout the day and also lose like 2000 friends at once lol,” she tweeted on Friday morning. The model added, “I choose to take the bad with the good!!”

Teigen, 35, joked that she had no one to share her random thoughts with, joking that she “spent weeks just saying tweets to shampoo bottles.”

Several of her now 1.5 million followers welcomed her back with open arms with some expressing how much they missed her commentary. “It also turns out it feels terrible to miss a ‘celebrity’ that you don’t know, but you feel like you know as a friend, cause this whole thing is weird. I’m happy to see you here again,” one person responded to Teigen.

“I’ve missed you more than the character limit allows me to say, Chrissy,” another impassioned fan commented, adding, “Twitter has been black and white since you took your color away…and as long as it’s healthy for you and yours, please stay and brighten our day, as we try to brighten yours.”

The “Cravings” author announced that she was officially leaving Twitter in March. “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!,” she told her 14 million followers at the time.

In February, she asked President Biden to unfollow her on Twitter so she could “flourish” and he promptly obeyed.

Teigen’s has had a difficult few months in regards to her personal life. In October 2020, Teigen revealed that she suffered a pregnancy loss after experiencing bleeding. She had opened up about the sad news a month later, saying that she and husband John Legend were “quiet but … okay.” She then honored her baby with a tattoo of his name, Jack, on her wrist. The couple, who wed in 2013, share 5-year-old daughter Luna and 2-year-old son Miles.

And in December 2020 she announced that she was four weeks sober. The former Sports Illustrated cover girl has been candid about her struggles with alcohol and revealed in 2017 that she was cutting back on booze because she didn’t know how to have just one drink. She also said alcohol abuse runs in her family.
