I miss the danger and destruction of Twitter, says Chrissy Teigen


Chrissy Teigen misses the "danger and destruction" of Twitter.
The 37-year-old star has likened the micro-blogging platform to "a full nicotine vape" and Chrissy has suggested that Bluesky Social - the increasingly popular social media platform - is a healthier alternative.
Chrissy - who has Luna, seven, Miles, four, and Esti, three months, with her husband John Legend - wrote on Twitter: "twitter is a full nicotine vape and blue sky is the water vape you use to wean off. I miss the danger and destruction of twitter but I know it’s better for me. It’s just missing a little unhingedness, like when I lifted an entire fridge at jimmy fallon to find my juul (NEVER start) (clean now) (sic)"
The model has more than 12 million followers on Twitter. But in 2020, Chrissy revealed that she was taking a break from social media after discussing the issue with her therapist.
She told Marie Claire magazine at the time: "I'm barely online anymore, and that was at the request of my therapist.
"I didn’t start therapy until quarantine. I used to avoid it and make fun of the idea of it, and then I found the right person and it changed my world."
Chrissy has found social media to be a tough environment.
The model also suggested that she's benefited from taking a break.
Chrissy - who has been married to John since 2013 - shared: "People think I'm tough, but I'm such an empath, and I take on other people's pain and sadness as my own. And when I let people down, I'm hyperaware of it. Sometimes I feel like people aren't going to be as hard on me as I am on myself. So it's good for me to take a break."
