You may recognize Dixie D'Amelio as the older sister of TikTok superstar Charli D'Amelio and over the past year, she's followed in her sister's footsteps to gain millions of social media followers herself.
And, of course, that includes Twitter! Since joining the app in 2017, Dixie has racked up an impressive 3.9 million followers:
But several days ago, Dixie mysteriously deleted her account after cryptically writing, "goodbye twitter...it was fun."
While some fans speculated that the cyberbullying on the app had gotten too intense for Dixie, others thought the 19-year-old had more politically fueled motives.
Dixie's deletion decision happened to fall on the same day that Donald Trump was banned from the app — and the same day that some of his supporters were deleting their accounts in solidarity.
Dixie's fans began to quickly speculate whether there was a correlation between the two events, hoping that she wasn't a Trump supporter:
Some fans even discovered an old VSCO photo on an account that allegedly belonged to Dixie, where Trump banners could be seen in the background:
After receiving backlash, Dixie took to her Instagram stories to clarify the situation and explain that she was definitely not a Trump supporter:
She added that she deleted her account because she "spends way too much time reading hate" and that her "timing was just awful."
As for those who were speculating about her political affiliations, Dixie wrote, "hate me but talk about every move i make...okay?"
While Dixie's disappearance from Twitter had nothing to do with Donald Trump, she has not yet voiced if she ever plans to return to the app. So for now, Dixie is saying peace out to Twitter.
