Ed Sheeran has taken to Instagram to clarify that he has not quit Twitter.

The 26-year-old 'Shape of You' star told The Sun that he had "come off Twitter completely" as he "can't read it".

“I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things – Twitter’s a platform for that.

“One comment ruins your day, but that’s why I’ve come off it.”

He added: “The head-f*** for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.”

The Glastonbury headliner still updates his Instagram account, but tweets from him are now limited to tour date posts and automatic updates via Instagram.

Sheeran took to Instagram to flag the publication of Q magazine, and to clarify that he has not "quit" anything.

"Q magazine is out now," he wrote, "Also loads of Hoo-har about me quitting stuff. I haven't quit anything, I'm just not reading anything, except Harry Potter. Hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th yo"
