It’s official: Azealia Banks has left Twitter.
Yesterday Banks tweeted, “Ok, today, i’m finally making the decision to eject from social media.” She cited American media as her reason for quitting, saying, “american media culture is honestly so fucking disgusting and junky.”
Banks is pretty much known for being an enthusiastic and outspoken Twitter user. She had her fair share of Twitter feuds, most recently with Iggy Azalea, a long-standing foe, who Banks released a diss track about.
Social media has also been a go-to for Banks to air her opinions on touring, among other things. Recently, she took issue with the Splendour In The Grass organisers and tweeted that the festival was, “Truly a waste of my fucking time,” adding, “I don’t need to travel 24hrs to be disrespected.”
Banks had some fervent supporters as well as haters on Twitter, all of whom are probably going to miss her.
