Weeks after toning down his Twitter use because of negativity, Ed Sheeran appears to have left the platform completely.

The singer's Twitter account has gone offline .

The move follows Sheeran's cameo on the season premiere of "Game of Thrones" Sunday night. Sheeran's appearance as a singing Lannister soldier became a buzzed-about topic on social media.

The 26-year-old told Britain's Sun tabloid this month that he was no longer using his Twitter account aside from posting his Instagram pictures to it. He called Twitter a platform for "saying mean things" and was trying to "work out why people dislike me so much."

Sheeran remains on Instagram , where he posted a picture of himself climbing mountains in Peru on Monday.

Sheeran's representatives didn't immediately return a request for comment Tuesday.
