Dunham, 29, spoke to the Re/Code Decode team in a podcast with Girls producer Jenni Konner and said Twitter wasn’t a safe place for her.

“I really appreciate that anybody follows me at all, and so I didn’t want to cut off my relationship to it completely, but it really, truly wasn’t a safe space for me.”
