Chrissy Teigen makes her Twitter private and moms everywhere cry a little

Chrissy Teigen has the best Twitter feed on the internet. Fact. But from now on, only those hand-picked by Teigen herself will benefit from her tweets of wisdom. Yes, the unthinkable is true. Teigen has gone dark.

From frank opinions on reality TV to digs at Donald Trump, confessing her love for junk food to admitting to being so lazy she called reception to find out her hotel room number, Teigen’s Twitter feed was always frank, funny and completely unapologetic. Even her husband John Legend described her as “literally the best person to follow on Twitter.” Plus, she called out Piers Morgan for being an “unequivocal douche.”

According to newspaper reports, before making her account private, Teigen confessed (in a private tweet), that she was “not strong enough anymore” to handle the public Twittersphere. “It’s not haters or trolls or generally mean people,” Daily Mail reported her as saying. “I just feel like I am absorbing bad shit 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore.”

Teigen, this is why we need you back. You gave us the good shit to counteract all the bad. And if there’s one group of people who need you the most, it’s moms.

Teigen gave birth to her first child, daughter Luna, in April and since then she’s been a source of comfort and light relief for many a fellow new mom.

She’s opened her heart about motherhood, and was never scared to approach the grody, stinky, embarrassing aspects of motherhood we struggle to bring up in normal conversation. She revealed her shock at having to go home from the hospital in diapers. She bought herself a perineal irrigation bottle as a push present. She shared her anguish over her sleep-fighting newborn. She challenged the haters who criticized her for going out for dinner a week after her daughter was born.

Teigen, please come back. We really, really miss your good shit.
