[UPDATED] Marvel’s Agent Carter, Hayley Atwell, Inexplicably Leaves Twitter & Instagram

HayleyAtwell

Moments ago, Marvel’s Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell signaled her exit from Twitter writing, “Thanks for following! Leaving Twitter now. Its been a blast.”

At this time, no reason was given for her leaving the social media network. Over the last year or so the actor had become quite the media maven breaking grown for the Dubsmash app as well as turning that into a successful fan-driven fundraising event. As you can imagine fans, myself included, were quite dismayed at this sudden turn of events. Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 4.50.03 PM Here’s hoping her stepping away didn’t have anything to do with harassment. It wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity felt the need to do so.

[UPDATE] Atwell has taken a moment to tweet once more to explain her leaving and dispel any rumors.

She wrote, “Must make it clear, no ‘trolls’ have chased me away, I’ve just decided to leave to be more present and private. Thanks for following!”

A very sad day for fans indeed but we wish her all the best.

[UPDATE #2] It appears Atwell has completely deleted her Twitter account [Edit: Also her Instagram] now rather than just stepping away from it.

  1. […] I usually try to end MMM with something happy, and several times in the past I’ve linked to Hayley Atwell’s social media in order to do that, which is why I was so incredibly sad to learn that she’s left social media. […]

    wow Privacy BAD

    I’ve heard some celebrities say that they just passed their Twitter off to staff so that they don’t get overly involved in it. Her presence on Twitter will be missed because she is so supportive of women and women’s rights. We need more people like her in social media, unafraid and unapologetic about what one’s rights are in this world. I hate that she deleted her account yet strangely, I admire her for having the resolve to do it. Not many people are that strong. I hope that we’ll hear from her through the official accounts for “Agent Carter” closer to the air date.

  4. Being more present makes sense. I know I try to keep off my phone around certain friends, cuz it irks them, and I don’t want to miss out on life to send off my latest witty thought.

    It’s because she’s dating Chris Evans. Calling it now.

    I think that Twitter can be a really hard thing for ‘celebrities’ – look at something they Tweet and then look at all of the responses they get. I’m not famous but I have a substantial following. I do my best to give some kind of acknowledgement or response to everyone who tweets @ me and I feel badly when I can’t. If my slightest utterance generated thousands of replies I might be tempted to just turn it off as well. IMO, if you’re not engaging and just broadcasting then Twitter is probably not the best medium (Facebook and Tumblr are probably better) but engaging on that level can become a full time job.

  7. Yeah, I had the sense it was less about negative responses and more about just a LOT of them … I’d click through on her tweets sometimes and the amount of engagement she got was huge no matter what she tweeted, which I know is somewhat par for the course for famous actors, but with how much she engaged back I could see it becoming overwhelming.

    I loved following her. And I have bad timing. Ive been lazy about taking and tweeting her my Agent Carter POP! Oh well.

  9. Katharine Ellis Tapley says:

    I think if it had something to do with harassment, she’d have addressed that in her last tweet.

    She may just want to reign in the social media activity she’s doing.
