Chrissy Teigen makes Twitter account private

Chrissy Teigen has made her Twitter account private.

The 'Lip Sync Battle' star is usually a prolific user of the microblogging site but has decided to only make her page available to followers she has approved because she is "not strong enough" anymore.

Asked if her account is now private, she tweeted: "Yeah. Not strong enough anymore."

But the 30-year-old beauty - who had earlier been tweeting her thoughts about the vice-presidential debate - insisted she hadn't made the decision after receiving unpleasant messages.

She added: "It's not haters or trolls or generally mean people.

"I just feel like I am absorbing bad s**t 24/7. My body and mind cannot handle it anymore."

The Sports Illustrated model recently admitted she is jealous of her 2.13 million followers because she wishes she could follower herself.

She wrote: "I am the best follow I know. I am jealous I'm not me and can't feel what it's like to follow me.

"I mean I'm jealous I'm not you

"I am me (sic)"

In August, Chrissy - who has five-month-old daughter Luna with husband John Legend - revealed she was using a special tool on Instagram to block negative comments by selecting keywords such as "****", "whore" and "sl*t" to be filtered out.

Alongside a picture of her screen showing the words she had typed, she wrote: "thank you, @instagram (sic)"

But Chrissy found it difficult listing off words that she has never been labeled before and said it felt like "therapy".

She added: "I'm actually having a hard time filling this filter thing out. It's like a therapy exercise, typing everything u have never been called lol (sic)"

It comes after the brunette beauty highlighted how the top five finalists for the Miss Teen USA pageant were not "diverse".

She wrote: "Wow how can we choose from such a diverse bunch (sic)"

Chrissy was branded racist among other things by her followers and she responded by saying hoped she did make anyone believe she cares about beauty parades.

She later posted: "I'll take the ignorance but hands down the worst part of this entire thing is the fact I gave anyone the misconception I care about pageants (sic)"
