UPDATE (March 24): Azealia Banks has returned to Twitter.
Before officially stepping away, she gave her followers a heads-up with this tweet: “Ok, today, i’m finally making the decision to eject from social media. american media culture is honestly so f—ing disgusting and junky.”
This isn’t Banks’ first social-media hiatus — as far back as 2012, she took a break from her Twitter timeline after one too many heated exchanges — so it remains to be seen if this deactivation sticks.
Billboard has reached out to Banks’ rep for further comment or explanation on her Twitter exit and hadn’t heard back by press time.
