Why Hayley ditched Twitter and Facebook
Tom Hodgkinson: Tell us about your attitude to different social media, Facebook, Twitter?
Hayley Atwell: I came off Twitter. I had close to a million followers and I had women, girls in particular, saying, “Thanks to your character, I’m seventy days self-harm free”. They would project a lot on to me, that I was their saviour. I understand it was a fifteen-year old girl thing. I’m sure I did it when I was that age. But I didn’t quite know what to do with it. I wasn’t sure what I felt either way so I came off it for a bit. And I came off Facebook. I found that there were probably only about ten people on Facebook that I actually would have gone for a cup of tea with. The other thing I felt is that it stopped me from being able to have face-to-face conversations with people. I would know what my godchildren were doing and looked like, but not because I’d spent any time with them. My best mate doesn’t know that I’ve seen all this. It’s not a conversation. So I actually found that social media was making me very lonely. I would see other people’s posts, and we only project what we want the world to see, so it was all bullshit. So I came off of it and went back on Instagram. But I made some social media rules that I now live by, which is to never post when hungry, angry, lonely or tired. Don’t look up ex-boyfriends. Don’t look up people that you’re jealous of. Don’t Google yourself. Do not read comments. Contribute positively. Don’t engage in controversy or become too political.
