Armie Hammer is waving goodbye to Twitter.

Shortly after discovering the Hollywood star no longer had an account with the social media site, several fans were left wondering what the heck happened.

But during TheWrap's Screening Series in Los Angeles Tuesday night, the Call Me by Your Name star decided to explain his decision.

"I just have no impulse control so if somebody says something stupid, I couldn't help but say something back, and then it just exploded," he explained to the audience. "This is a toxic environment, and my life is way better off."

Armie continued, "It's so funny — People are so addicted and into Twitter, it seems crazy that someone could walk away from it! They're like, 'Wait, he deleted it?' It was actually really easy."

Before making the decision, Armie came across BuzzFeed's article titled "10 Long Years of Trying to Make Armie Hammer Happy."

The article asked the question, "How many second chances does a handsome white male star get?" when looking at his career in Hollywood.

Armie would ultimately send a message to the writer on Twitter before deleting his account. "Your chronology is spot on but your perspective is bitter AF," he wrote. "Maybe I'm just a guy who loves his job and refuses to do anything but what he loves to do…?"

Ultimately, the actor is focused on his latest film that is receiving positive reviews from critics and movie goers alike. In fact, there is already Oscar buzz surrounding Call Me by Your Name, which recently won the Gotham Independent Film Award for Best Feature.
