The Shape Of You singer revealed he has quit the social media site, but his account will automatically tweet out any Instagram posts he makes.
Ed said he is sick of having his day ruined by nasty tweets sent to him online.
He told The Sun: ‘I’ve actually come off Twitter completely. I can’t read it.
‘I got 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**k for me has been trying to work out why people dislike me so much.’
