Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Lena Dun­ham (left) does not “look at Twit­ter any­more” and ad­mits she hired some­one to write her tweets. The Girls cre­ator and ac­tor said she re­cently stopped man­ag­ing her ac­count be­cause online bul­lies were cre­at­ing some “can­cer­ous stuff in­side” her, said the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter.

“I don’t look at Twit­ter any­more. I tweet, but I do it through some­one else. I don’t even know my Twit­ter pass­word, which may make me seem like I’m no longer a sort of gen­uine com­mu­nity user. I re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate those who fol­low me, and I didn’t want to cut off my re­la­tion­ship with it com­pletely, but it re­ally, truly wasn’t a safe space for me,” Dun­ham, said. “Even if you think, like, ‘Oh I can read, like, 10 men­tions that say I should be stoned to death’ and kind of, like, laugh and move on. That’s ver­bal abuse. Those aren’t words that should be di­rected at you ever. And so, for me per­son­ally, it was safer to stop (us­ing Twit­ter),” the 29-year-old added.
