Piers Morgan has announced he will be taking a break from Twitter after claiming members of the social media platform are "unhinged".

The 56 year old has used Twitter as his sounding board since he explosively quit Good Morning Britain following a row about Meghan Markle in March.

But he has now vowed to spend less time on the social media site after once again hitting out at the 39 year old Duchess of Sussex and blasting the "pathetic and exhausting woke brigade" over calls to have the ending of Disneyland's Snow White ride changed so it doesn't show her "non-consensual" kiss from Prince Charming.

He wrote to his 7.9million followers: "When, as I've been doing these past few weeks, you spend a lot less time on Twitter, and a lot more time out & about in the real world, you realise just how many god-awful & unhinged people are on this platform.

"I intend spending even less time in their putrid company," he continued to pen to his fans.

Despite Piers saying he would be spending less time on Twitter, he has made a further seven tweets since making his announcement less than 24 hours since the time of publication.


However, Piers did face some criticism from Twitter users following his announcement, with one observing: "Just the 14 posts in the last 24hrs, any chance you can scale it back a bit more?!"

A second wrote: "Thanks for coming on Twitter to tell us you are going to spend less time on Twitter."

Whilst a third wrote: "Your in another good mood I see Mr. Morgan. Lighten up," with a fan of Prince Harry's wife adding: "Thank [email protected] The beautiful Duchess Meghan Markle would really appreciate the break."

Naturally, the controversial figure was also met with well wishes from his own fans, with one writing: "I agree this place is a cesspit of horrible viewpoints though, and people who do not treat others with respect. Its good for your mental health to take a break."

Another wrote: "Do you know Piers, I actually joined Twitter to follow you following your departure from @gmb.

"I agree entirely with you about the ghastly comments on this platform – if you're taking a break, so will I. Enjoy your time and freedom with those you love the best. Happy days."

A third supported penned: "I agree. You have seemed to become a better person since leaving GMB and not being so bullish with your views.

"Twitter can be awful platform as it is so easy to say hurtful things. I still dip in and out but am tending to only follow people that have a more positive attitude."

A final fan said: "I totally agree. I thought the world was actually a vile place when I joined here, but it's not, it's just this platform."
