Twitter and Instagram definitely have a lot of upsides — like making friends, staying connected with people you don’t get to see that often and of course and keeping up with your favorite celebrities. But with the Internet trolls and haters, they’ve also got some downsides too. That’s why some of our favorite stars have decided to step away from social media over the years.
Take Dominic Sherwood, for example. The actor just announced that he was leaving Twitter to focus on himself. He wrote on Instagram, “For all those concerned, I’ve decided to remove myself from Twitter. My reasons are my own and I hope that it’s met with understanding. With the start of a new year I would like to take a breath. My Instagram will still be active. There’s no need to worry.”
As much as fans are going to miss seeing his posts, everyone is so glad he’s taking some time to refresh and focus. And it turns out, he’s not the only one. Stars like Tana Mongeau, Chloe Lukasiak, Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello, Lili Reinhart, Justin Bieber, Dove Cameron and more have all also taken a step away from the internet before — and those are just a few on the long list.
