A great platform to express feelings, gather knowledge and understand many different points of view. But, of late you seem to have gotten lost in all the hate everyone is so ready to throw at each other, a place of bullies, a place where abusing people is a normal code of conduct."

Aayush Sharma, on the other hand, wrote, “280 characters are less to define a human being but 280 characters are more than enough to spread fake news, hatred and negativity. Didn't sign up for this nasty herd mentality... khudda hafiz.”

Zaheer Iqbal, who was launched by Salman Khan in the film ‘Notebook’, bid farewell to the social networking platform by writing, “Goodbye Twitter.” Filmmaker and Huma Qureshi’s BF Mudassar Aziz also quit Twitter long back has now exited Instagram.
