It's been a month since Chrissy Teigen made her Twitter account private, and so far, the supermodel mama is completely regret-free.
"I feel like I'm definitely so much happier, for sure," she continued. "It's like puppies and unicorns over in my Twitter -- unless somebody writes a story or something and then tags me. Then I still get all those mentions. That's when it's bad."
"But for the most part, it's been really, really great," she added. "It's really just a nice, quiet, peaceful place."
The new mom was prompted to change her privacy settings in October after she started to feel that she was "not strong enough anymore" to handle the negativity on the microblogging platform.
"It's not haters or trolls or generally mean people," she explained via Twitter at the time. "I just feel like I'm absorbing bad s--- 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore."
The outspoken beauty -- who's incited the Twitterdom's wrath on more than a few occasions over the years -- still tweets regularly and has more than 2.82 million followers. Anyone who followed her before she updated her privacy settings in October was not affected by the change, but new followers will have to be personally approved by Chrissy before they can read her tweets or interact with her.
"Everyone always asks me why I don't just keep it public but only look at mentions from people I follow," she told us. "But I'm like, no, then that's not social media."
"I think one of the best things about social media is hearing what the fans have to say and interacting with people you don't know and don't follow," she continued. "I've always loved that part of it."
So she'll have to settle for hovering just shy of 3 million followers for now. Fortunately, that doesn't seem to be an issue for the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model.
"I'm definitely loving being private still," she concluded. "I think I'll be living there for a while."
We hope you're one of the 2.82 million with access to the goods!
