On July 3, Britain’s The Sun newspaper published an interview with Ed in which he told he’d ‘come off Twitter completely.’ ‘I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things. Twitter has a platform for that. One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it,’ he explained.The next day, though, the 26 year’s old backtracked and posted to Instagram, saying: ‘I haven’t quit anything, I’m just not reading anything, except Harry Potter.’
