British singer Ed Sheeran deleted his Twitter account without explanation, however, his disappearance was short-lived, as he soon reactivated his account.

What are the fans speculating regarding his temporary departure from Twitter

Sheeran recently made a cameo appearance on the HBO drama series "Game of Thrones," which resulted in mixed reviews from viewers. After the episode aired, the 26-year-old singer was showered with both praise and criticism on social media. Many of his fans are speculating that the singer deleted his account so that he could avoid the criticism and online trolls.

Ed Sheeran's view on Twitter

The "Thinking Out Loud" singer's move was not entirely surprising, since, even in the past, Sheeran talked about his reservations regarding the social media platform. He once said that people say "mean things," and that "Twitter's a platform for that." The singer also faced severe backlash from Lady Gaga's fans when they mistakenly thought that Sheeran indirectly talked about her in one of his interviews.

Some details regarding Sheeran's Twitter account

The 26-year-old British singer, who currently has 14.5 million followers on Twitter, previously had more than 19 million followers on the social media platform. After reactivating his account this week, all of his tweets and replies since April 2015 were gone, and his bio read "I don't use this anymore, please follow me on @teddysphotos on Instagram, lots of love x." Sheeran has also not been as active on Twitter since he said that he was unable to deal with the online bullying and trolling.

On the other hand, he does share photos with his 13.9 million followers on his Instagram account regularly.
