Avid tweeter and millennial Lena Dunham is over the 140 character lifestyle.

It seems the Girls actress, also on the cover of ELLE February 2015, has deleted the Twitter app from her phone because she is “trying to create a safer space” for herself “emotionally.”

Dunham explained her Twitter purge on Sunday night during a Golden Globes red carpet interview with Ryan Seacrest, after Seacrest asked if she would be checking social media to see how people are reacting to the Season 4 premiere of her show.

But it should also be said, Dunham tweeted a few hours ago.

Clearly Dunham is just on track her her 2015 resolutions as you are.
