Ed Sheeran has revealed he quit Twitter due to a barrage of messages from nasty trolls.

The singer has no time for the social media site, or for the people who leave hateful comments on it.

“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,” he told The Sun.

“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.”

Recalling one particularly hurtful moment he had on the site, he said, “Lady Gaga’s fanbase read an interview in which they assumed I was talking about her and they all f****** hate.

“And it wasn’t anything to do with that at all. So I think Twitter gets on a massive steam roll of assuming things and then you get in the s***.”

Meanwhile, Ed has just announced a massive stadium tour, which will see him play a whopping seven dates in Ireland across four counties next summer.

He will play Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork on the 4th and 5th of May, Belfast at Boucher Playing Fields on the 9th of May, followed by Pearse Stadium in Galway on the 12th and 13th.

The 26-year-old will then head to Dublin for the 16th and 18th to play in the Phoenix park.

Tickets are on sale on July 8th at 9am and are sure to sell quickly, but if you’re planning on heading along to one of the gigs be aware of the new rules involved.

A statement released by the musician’s management read:  “Ed and his team have a strict stance against anyone using secondary ticketing websites for profit.

“On this tour, any tickets that are resold will not be valid – this means no profit to touts and no one getting ripped off.

“On all the stadium dates you will be required to bring your tickets, booking confirmation and credit card, plus a valid form of ID or you will not be granted entry to the show.”

They added: “Your ticket is not valid if resold unless it’s through our official face-value resale partner Twickets.”
