Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has given an explanation behind his decision to delete his Twitter account.
Nowadays, many footballers use different social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook in order to connect with their fans and share a rare insight into their lives.
24-year-old Mount, who has racked up 1.8 million followers on Twitter has decided to delete his account.
On Thursday afternoon, the Chelsea star tweeted: “Over the years I’ve thoroughly enjoyed connecting with you all on Twitter. Sadly, the platform is changing so I have decided to delete my account.
“You all can still connect with me on my other social media platforms here: http://masonmount.Komi.io. Take care, Mason.”
Mount came through the ranks at Chelsea before making his debut for the club in 2019 under manager Frank Lampard.
Since then, he has gone on to make 195 appearances for Chelsea and has so far scored 33 goals.

In recent months, Mount’s future at Stamford Bridge has become the talk of the town.
The midfielder’s contract is due to expire at the end of the 23/24 season. To date, it is believed that no agreement has been reached between the club and the player over a potential new deal.
Heading into the summer transfer window, Chelsea will have to make a decision on whether to cash in on Mount or let him run down his contract and lose him for free next summer.
Recently, Chelsea interim boss Lampard spoke about Mount.
He said: “Mason has always been a fantastic player for me at Derby and Chelsea.
“I know he's had a few slight injury problems. I need to speak to him and find out where he's at, but I know what I get from Mason. He's a huge player for Chelsea.”
Lampard continued: “Modern-day football has big squads and I understand Chelsea might be at the top end. I remember being here before and having that.
“Maybe in the short term, that's a positive thing for me because everyone can have a clean slate.”
