Jameela Jamil has announced she is leaving Twitter after Elon Musk purchased the social media platform for $44 billion.

The Tesla founder and world’s richest man finalised the deal to buy Twitter on Monday, making it a privately owned company.

Despite Musk urging his “worst critics” to remain on the platform ahead of the sale announcement on Monday, many Twitter users have announced plans to close their accounts, including Jamil.

Ahead of the deal being confirmed, the former The Good Place actress told her one million followers: “One good thing about Elon buying Twitter is that I will FINALLY leave and stop being a complete menace to society on here. So it's win win for you all really.”

Once the deal was confirmed, she followed through with her word, saying she feared how the platform would change for the worse under Musk’s ownership.

For her last tweet, she shared a series of images holding her dog, Barold.
