Demi Lovato left Twitter in way back October 2010, right before she went into rehab. She returned five months later... and then left again in 2012 after going on a Twitter rant about trust. She then returned for a number of years, sharing personal stories about her struggle, only to say goodbye in the summer of 2016 because trolls suck.

3. Lena Dunham

After getting in some trouble for some inappropriate Tweets, and receiving loads of backlash as a result, Dunham said Twitter was no longer a "safe space" for her. She left the website in late September 2015.

4. Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea does not always "fancy" the social media service. She tweeted on February 18 that she was taking time away from social media because she "[needs] to be happy and it is too negative and draining." But she has since returned.

5. Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt took a break in 2013 due the negativity people choose to send on Twitter, but she returned just a few months later.

6. Alec Baldwin

Alec Baldwin famously vowed in 2013 he would never reopen his Twitter account after he exploded in a expletive-filled Twitter rant directed at a British reporter. He's since returned, but not under his former personal account.
