However, actress Richa Chadha has different reason to avoid social media. She has changed the settings of her Twitter account to private. The actress has also offered her explanation behind this decision. Richa took to her verified Twitter account, @RichaChadha, on Saturday to reveal that she has turned it into "private" because she wants to spend less time on "mindless scrolling". "Am making my account private. It's not because this platform is toxic (the world is toxic Tbh ab kya karein). I am here to help, support, amplify, crack a joke only, but I have a deadline and this mindless scrolling takes too much time !"
