Actress Sonakshi Sinha opens up about quitting Twitter and calls the social media site a buzzkill

Sonakshi Sinha is enjoying a peaceful time at her home during the lockdown as she is finally away from the toxicity of social media. Sinha was at the blunt end of the stick after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Hundreds of internet trolls attacked Sonakshi Sinha for her privilege as a nepotistic kid. The Lootera actress lost her patience and quit Twitter back then to avoid all the backlash
 
In a recent interview with Hindustan times Sonakshi Sinha opened up about quitting Twitter and said, 'More than the buzz, it was a buzz kill. Twitter has become such a playing ground for negativity with people going on and on about anything and everything and in such a gutsy manner.'
 
'My life has changed for the better, it’s much cleaner, so I have no complaints. And I’ve also put my comments off on Instagram,' she added.
 
Sonakshi Sinha also said that bullying on social media severely harms the mental health of people. The Dabangg 3 actress called social media unrest a bizarre situation. She said, 'If you’re not complying to what they’re saying, feeling or thinking, you end up getting trolled.'
 
Back in June she wrote, 'How I got myself off twitter and away from the negativity. Some people are celebrating like they won something... im happy for you, the Laga Raha hai na... lagne do, kisi ko koi farak nahi padh raha (I am happy that you feel this way. Continue feeling like that, nobody gives a damn).'
 
'But let's face it, ive cut the direct source of insult and abuse in my life. Ive taken away YOUR power to be able to say whatever it is that you want to me, my family and my friends. Ive taken away that access you had to me, that i had given you so trustingly. So theres only one winner here. Me,' she added.
