Athletes and celebrities shut down their Twitter accounts all the time, but Lydia Ko managed to give a reason for leaving the social media service we’ve never heard before. Apparently, the app was clogging up her mobile phone.
Lydia Ko shut down her Twitter account today, but she said it wasn't because of criticism over her making more major changes to her team. She said she prefers Instragram, doesn't use Twitter much & Twitter was taking up too much storage on her phone

Taking up too much storage on her phone? Really?
To be fair, I launched a full investigation into the matter (by checking the storage on my own phone), and Twitter does take up about three times the space Instagram does. Still . . . how much space is on your phone, Lydia? Have you not upgraded to at least 128 gigabytes by now? You’re a two-time Major champ!
Here are Ko’s full quotes from Mell’s Thursday story:
“I actually did it because I wasn’t really on Twitter that much,” Ko said after shooting an opening 68 at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open. “I actually spend most of my social media time on Instagram.”
