Meghan Markle Reveals Whether She Still Looks at Twitter

Meghan Markle Reveals Whether She Still Looks at Twitter

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (Meghan Markle) is opening up about being on social media – or rather not being on it at all!

The pregnant 37-year-old royal opened up during a panel discussion during International Women’s Day at King’s College London on Friday (March 8) in London, United Kingdom.

“My personal decision is to not to feed into negativity and be more cause-driven, action-based. For me it’s a tricky one, because I’m not part of any of that,” she said when asked if she still looks at Twitter.

“I don’t look at it. Sorry, no. For me that is my personal preference. But I do read The Economist,” she added. (The panel discussion was moderated by Anne McElvoy, senior editor of The Economist.)

She also said that she looks for “journalism that’s really covering things that are going to make an impact, which we talked about backstage. We were talking about Tanzania and the article The Economist just did. Things like that, that are really talking about how the role of women is really shifting and changing. That’s key. Focus your energy there and not on the stuff that is perhaps muddling you.”

Meghan deleted all of her social media accounts in January of 2018.

    I love her more and more! Smart, smart young lady!

    Meghan obviously wants to do greater things. She doesn’t want to waste her life on the trivial. Yes, stay away–FAR AWAY from Twitter and all that other social media junk. You can’t please everyone and when you’re rich and famous, there is too much hate. It will ruin your day.

    The problem is when the other people around you are into that stuff–Kate, William, the staff members. Because when they’re keeping up with all the gossip, they somehow get influenced by it and try to bring it back to you.

    Easier to deny how much you are hated if you dont allow yourself to read it.

  • Stoni

    Don’t forget Harry. He obviously knows how much Meghan is hated.

  • DeadP001

    She reads propaganda in other words. Just when I thought she couldnt come off any dumber. She reads the magazine of the most out of touch people on the planet.

    Harry knows because I guarantee you that when he married her, all those stuffy people around that palace made it obvious. You can feel those vibes. And that’s why I love how Harry is standing proudly by his wife. This is his life. This is the family he so longed for. If he clings to her and puts his family first, they should do very well together.

    I don’t know that mag, but maybe there is less hate speech.

  • YaThink

    If you’re famous, you are hated by someone. Psychologists are already saying that young people are more depressed & lonely because of all the social media. Social media wasn’t around when I was young. So glad!

    You shouldn’t feed on negative stuff all the time. Even the news can get to you. People need to take regular breaks from it.

  • Stoni

    And clinging he better do because standing next to her won’t be enough. If Chelsey would have married him there would be no Difficult Duchess. I wonder how she likes being second choice?

  • YaThink

    Meghan Markle wants to live a life of “purpose.”

  • Stoni

    Sure do!

  • YaThink

    Obviously, Harry and Chelsea were not meant to be. Harry’s friend said Harry knew right away that Meghan was the one for him. He fell in love early. And I can definitely see why. She’s so cute and bright spirited.

  • Stoni

    Still must be hard knowing your second choice.

  • YaThink

    It’s not like he was dating the 2 women at the same time and asked Chelsea first, she said no, and then he asked Meghan as a backup plan.

    Harry started fresh with Meghan Markle. His past relationship with Chelsea was already dead.

  • Stoni

    Yep Meghan was definitely the backup plan.

  • YaThink

    Nope!

    I know, like, why would he want to marry someone who was already used to being in the public eye and had already done a ton of charity work in Africa, a place he loves. You are what we call a Shite Stirrer. Sorry that you were abused as a child and became someone’s second choice.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Why care what anyone thinks, it’s not like she’s gonna sit down to tea with any of you. totes jelly.

  • YaThink

    Just took a break and received an email about how Her Royal Highness just appointed Meghan Markle to another important role. She’s VP and will work alongside Harry, who is the President.

    Because Meghan Markle is an only child, I have a feeling she gets along well with the Queen. Only children often have more trouble with their peers, but get along better with older people, because that’s who they were around the most while growing up.

  • YaThink

    :-) Right. Meghan Markle is all about making a difference. She’s also someone women can look up to.

    I think Harry is proud of his wife, and he should be. She’s a doer.

  • USWeeklyHatesComments

    Considering how much time and energy and money is being spent to control, delete and block Twitter comments…. she knows. She’s reading them, someone in her camp is reading them and reporting to her. So yeah, I don’t believe she doesn’t read anything.

  • USWeeklyHatesComments

    William and Kate are into Twitter. Since when?

  • Stoni

    Well you obviously care what I think about her so you will pass it onto her when you have tea with her.

  • Stoni

    Look me up when Megan leaves Harry.

  • YaThink

    I don’t have proof about Twitter, though I wouldn’t be surprised if they read tweets. But I do believe they are keeping up with what is on social media somehow.

    When I saw William and Kate displaying rare PDA last week or so, I immediately thought, “Aha!”

    I read that William had concerns about Meghan Markle, and Harry became upset with him. Who could blame Harry? He just married the woman, and NOW William voices his concerns? William should have done all that while they were courting. I imagine Harry probably took it as a put down, like William thinking Harry doesn’t make good decisions and that William is listening to all the negative gossip.

    There is plenty of hate speech in it, against the poor,m the middle class and people of color countries who dont want to subjugate themselves to white supremacists.
