UPDATE: Demi Lovato returned to Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday afternoon (June 21). "I'm back bitches," she tweeted after reactivating her accounts.

Musicians quitting social media is kind of like boxers hanging up the gloves and retiring: happens all the time, but it rarely sticks. But from the sounds of it, Demi Lovato feels pretty strongly about diminishing her social media presence and she's putting her money where her tweets (and instas) were.

"Damn I gotta quit sayin s---. Bye Twitter," she wrote on Monday, adding, "and Insta."



Don't freak out, though, because despite suggesting she's leaving her 36.6 million Twitter followers and 40.8 million Instagram pals forever, Demi promised that she would still update Lovatics on Snapchat (theddlovato), because at least there she doesn't "have to see what some of y'all say."
