Matt Jackson took to Instagram to comment on his decision to leave Twitter. His brother, Nick Jackson, has also left the social media platform. The Young Bucks and All Elite Wrestling were subject to heavy criticism over the closing angle on last week’s AEW Dynamite, despite the fact that the rest of the show was well-received by most fans.
Matt said the following on Instagram:
“First off, I acknowledge how ridiculous it is that I even need to talk about this, but it’s clearly a distraction. My brother & I decided to leave Twitter permanently a few days ago. We realized it took precious time away form our families who’ve already sacrificed enough time as it is. Also, we’ve noticed how it seems to stifle our creativity. Lastly, after taking numerous breaks this past year from Twitter, we found it to be healing to our mental health, so getting off completely was the next step. This will not change how we interact with our amazing fans, as we’ll continue to put out our best content online. Never be afraid to say hello to us whether it’s on social media or in person. Thanks so much for the support. We love you all very much. Happy holidays!”
The sad fact is that while most people on Twitter are good people, there is a mob out there that can make the Twitter experience very toxic so the decision to get off the platform is understandable.
