Addison Rae, a popular TikTok star, has deleted her Twitter account without warning, leaving her nearly five million followers in the dark about what’s going on with her. While many fans follow the TikTok content creator on her main app, others follow her on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, the latter of which is no longer an option.
On November 24, Addison Rae deleted her Twitter account, Whoisaddison, without saying goodbye to her large following. Addison Rae has kept her Instagram, public Facebook page, and YouTube account, though the latter hasn’t been updated in a year as the content creator has prioritised the ByteDance app.
Addison Rae has yet to explain why she deleted her Twitter account as of November 25, and fans who visit her page are greeted with the “this account doesn’t exist” screen. Many Twitter users are perplexed by Addison Rae’s decision to leave one social media platform while remaining on so many others, because she regularly updates her community with videos and behind-the-scenes tweets. Because her Twitter handle is still active, it’s possible that the popular TikTok star is simply taking a break from the platform in order to focus more heavily on something else or to leave something behind.
Maintaining a growing TikTok following with regular uploads, Addison Rae’s Twitter following has seen a slight decline as 40,000 followers have unfollowed the content creator since June 2021. Addison Rae has a TikTok following of over 88 million viewers and creates fashion, dance, and IRL content, but she hasn’t uploaded to the app since November 16, which could indicate that she’s busy with personal matters. Her most recent TikTok video focused on her collaboration with the mobile game War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, which she has mentioned throughout her social media presence, including the deleted Twitter account.
While many Addison Rae fans have expressed shock and disappointment at the popular TikTok star’s disappearance from Twitter, others are hoping for a return or an appropriate explanation. One Addison Rae TikTok viewer called the star’s departure from Twitter the “worst day” of their lives, while others remain silent in the hope of a farewell from Rae on another platform.
