Maine Mendoza on why she has been off Twitter

19 Jun - Maine Mendoza recently shared her reason for taking a break from Twitter, where she has more than 26,000 followers.

As reported on GMA, the actress recently updated her blog, mainemendoza.com, where she explained her reason for being away from Twitter, saying that the Twitterverse has been quite toxic of late.

Maine writes, "Do you still remember when everything used to be fun there? When Twitter used to be a harmonious environment for everyone? Haha I know, me neither."

"Anyway, I just cannot stand people's negativity there lately. I mean, I have enough negativity in my system already to still add and endure those," she added.

Later, Mendoza responded to a comment from a reader, saying that she wasn't referring to the online haters when she described Twitter as being toxic.

"Bashers are there 24/7 since the very beginning and I honestly do not mind [them]. It's just lately, some of the fans are the ones to start and engage in conflict; until things start getting blown out of proportion. It [has come] to a point where fans are quarreling with fans too, and not with bashers anymore," she said.

Lastly she expressed hope that everybody would be able to "perpetuate the harmony" among each other.

Mendoza, who has been on Twitter since December 2015, last updated her social media account in April. Despite not being on Twitter, the "Destined to be Yours" star continues to post on Instagram and her blog.
