Heard deleted her Twitter account at the same time her former partner, Elon Musk, acquired it.
With Elon Musk as the new owner of Twitter, those who use it daily are left wondering what will happen to the platform. Whether he’ll grow tired of it and sell it at a loss or if he’s good enough to drive the social media company into success is yet to be seen.
With all of the negativity on Twitter as of late, Amber Heard has decided that it is finally time to leave the site. As Musk’s former partner, she was one of the primary targets of hate and abuse over the past few years. Therefore, she may be one of the best examples of someone who does not need to be subjected to The Hell Site anymore.
Thus, while Musk was busy pleading for $8 each to maintain Twitter’s verification system against fraud this week, online detectives noticed that Heard had quietly deleted her account.
Amber Heard’s social media platforms have been relatively inactive recently, which is perfectly understandable considering her past legal struggles with her ex-husband Johnny Depp. Last week, she finally deactivated her Twitter account; however, she still has an Instagram profile that hasn’t seen much recent activity.
Amber is an exceptional case due to the level of anger directed toward her as well as her connection to Musk. According to reports, Musk and Heard dated from 2016 to 2017, as Heard spoke positively of him in 2018; it is unclear where they stand now.
From now on, Elon Musk will be dogged by this question: How much dysfunction, frustration, and scattershot innovation from the big names help keep the social media site relevant—not to mention the everyday users who generate content that makes it attractive to advertisers—will users tolerate before they leave?
