Mohamed Salah Posts Cryptic Message Before Immediately Deleting His Twitter Account
It appears Mohamed Salah is on a social media detox.
Mohamed Salah has deleted his official Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts in a surprising turn of events.
But before getting rid of Twitter, he posted one last cryptic message in a form of a belated New Years resolution.
"2019 Resolution: Time to get in touch, for real," he wrote.
Naturally, the 26-year-old's decision to delete his online profiles sent social media into overdrive:
Mohamed Salah has maybe deleted twitter because he's embarrassed watching all the videos of himself diving every game #salah

Mohamed Salah has now deactivated his official social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. It's cool though, LeBron too doesn't use social media during the playoffs

If Mohamed Salah's deleted his Twitter account to focus more on his football, then that's brilliant news. :thumbsup:

We tried to warn you. Mohamed Salah let loose from the shackles of social media would tear the Premier League apart. Salah without Twitter and Instagram should be illegal.

Mohamed Salah has deactivated his twitter, he must have been getting it about his diving/cheating antics!

What's the reason behind his sudden departure from social media?
Well, it could be his dispute with the Egyptian FA over his image rights or he may want to remove himself from Twitter as a result of recent criticism for his diving, and concentrate on his football.
It's also claimed it's part of a 'awareness to the importance of real life communication away from social media'.

Salah, meanwhile, has been lambasted by fans and experts for going down too easy.
He was subject to abuse for his dive against Crystal Palace.
Premier League legend Alan Shearer called him out for his 'embarrassing' dive.
"I think he got away with one against Newcastle, but that is a dive," he said.
"He feels a bit of contact and then realises it a second or too later, and then goes down, and it is a dive.
"Pretty embarrassing really and not good at all to see that.
"You can see the Palace players are going absolutely berserk and rightly so. They accuse him of diving and they are right."
