Ed Sheeran’s Twitter account is back online hours after it suddenly vanished. However, all of the singer’s tweets since April 2015 have been removed, and his more than 19 million followers have been reduced to a few thousand.

The moves follow Sheeran’s cameo on the season premiere of “Game of Thrones” on Sunday night, a much a buzzed-about topic on social media.

The 26-year-old told Britain’s Sun that he was no longer using his Twitter account besides posting Instagram pictures to it. He called Twitter a platform for “saying mean things” and was trying to “work out why people dislike me so much.”
