Azealia Banks finally quit Twitter after causing so much chaos on there. The rapper revealed that she has decided to quit the social media site for good.
Before Azealia Banks quit Twitter, she had to give her fans a fond farewell. She went on to bash the media for causing most of her controversial comments and feuds on the social media app.
“Ok, today, I’m finally making the decision to eject from social media. American media culture is honestly so f***ing disgusting and junky and complaining about it is not going to change it. Reading s**t, seeing stupid a*s articles and dumb b**ches/bros has just really filled me up with a lot of bad feelings. (sic)”
Banks then revealed that giving up Twitter will do her some good. The “ATM Jam” rapper blasted Americans for their bad taste in social media sites.
“it’s been a great couple of years, sharing opinions and having conversations, but I think I will be so much happier just NOT looking at this. (Americans have the WORST taste in everything.) so my friends, its time to say goodbye once and for all to this account. This account will exist no more. Time for a bit of Mystery…Goodbye.”
As of right now, Azealia Banks’ Twitter profile is still inactive. Doesn’t look like she’ll be coming back anytime soon. In recent weeks, Banks used social media to tease some new tracks and her upcoming album. She also subtweeted fellow rapper Iggy Azalea, and threatened to kill her. In fact, Banks has had several feuds with artists on Twitter over the few years that she’s been on it.
Instead of giving Azealia some much-needed publicity, her online feuds have caused her some trouble. It even cost her a collaboration with Rihanna and Beyoncé. Azealia is such a troublemaker that even her own fans have been celebrating over the news of her departure, according to a report published on Idolator.
However, you can still catch up with Banks on her Facebook page and her Instagram account, where she’s been raising ruckus these days. Over on Instagram, Banks decided to attack musician Erykah Badu once again.
The legendary singer shared a photo of herself along with the caption, “planned my work…Next…I work my plan.”

Azealia left the comment “Eww” underneath Erykah’s post. This caused Erykah’s fans to write the word “Eww” under each and every one of Azealia’s photos on her Instagram account.
This isn’t the first time that Azealia Banks and Erykah Badu have been at war with each other. It all started around Valentine’s Day 2015 when a fan asked Badu if she ever listened to Banks’ music, to which Badu responded with the shady comment, “tried.” This ignited a feud with Banks, who called the R&B singer “jealous” and “old” in a series of now deleted tweets.
Erykah then responded, “Well s**t I did try. Maybe you’re right…I’m just too old to get it. You cool tho?” @AZEALIABANKS: @fatbellybella ……Jealousy.”

A fan noticed that Badu turned on her geolocation to reveal that she’s from Queens, New York. Banks, a Harlem native, slammed the singer for wearing “head wraps” and “musky oils.” Badu then said she was only kidding and to “be careful.”
Their feud later reignited in late July when another fan brought it up again. Azealia claimed that Erykah isn’t “really about that life” and that she has the DMs to prove it. Shen then said she wanted to beat up the 43-year-old singer because older women think they talk “slick s**t.”
Badu was too busy looking at her four Grammys to worry about Banks dissing her again on Twitter. No word on whether or not she responded to her Instagram comment lately.
