Has anyone seen our microscopic violin and the tiny ant we get to play it? We have a gig for him riding around on Ed Sheeran's shoulder like Jiminy Cricket.

Fresh off of headlining Glastonbury and announced a slew of dates around Ireland, Ed Sheeran is having a little boo-hoo over Twitter and has revealed that he's quit the social media platform.

Speaking to the Sun, Sheeran said: "I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I 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. The head-f*** for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much."

Instead, his Twitter will now just contain automatically generated links from his Instagram account whenever posts are made there.

He did however make sure to cosy up to Rupert Murdoch,saying "The comments on The Sun’s websites are actually nice" so now you know which side of the war to come he's on.

We're sure he'll find comfort crying into his piles and piles of money.
