Disturbed lead vocalist David Draiman recently went back to using Twitter after taking a lengthy social media break and revealed the reasons behind this decision. Also, the singer drew attention to his problems with social media.

David Draiman decided to quit the popular social media platform Twitter in 2015, shortly after he created his account to reflect his ideas about the ongoing issues both in his own country and worldwide. This move surprised his fans, who were very happy about connecting him easily through posts and comments.

Draiman shared his ideas, saying:

“There’s just no decency. It’s a bunch of high school kids insulting each other, having a contest about who can come up with the most grandiose insult. It’s childish. People are dying to be triggered about something. All you have to do is express your opinion on anything, and someone’s going to fight you about it. As a band, it’s not like we’re using our social media to be influencers, so why bother?”

Later in one of his interviews with Kerrang, David stated that he had to leave because the platform turned into a place for ‘high school kids insulting each other.’ Therefore, he couldn’t tolerate people’s childish, foolish, and disrespectful behaviors on social media.

At the beginning of this year, the Disturbed frontman announced his return to Twitter by sharing a post. In addition, Draiman explained why he started using the platform again, saying that he was tired of being silent for years and is here to reflect his ideas and feelings about his life and the whole world despite tribalism, manipulation, lies, attacks.

He added that he will do his best to enlighten his followers during these dark times and only stand for the truth without getting involved in troll wars or bullshit. According to Draiman, there are many things to celebrate, target, and highlight in this world, so he had to come back.

Here’s what Draiman wrote:

“Came back to Twitter because I was tired of watching from the sidelines for the last number of years. Yes, the world of social media is still a relative cesspool, but I figured maybe it was time to jump back in, only this time, with a hazmat suit on…lol.”

In the following tweets he added:

“Too much going on in the world that I care deeply about to not share it with everyone. Too many things to call out, to both celebrate and condemn. Too much manipulation, too many people attacking one another, too much tribalism, and obnoxious virtue signaling.

Too many rageaholic keyboard warriors out there using what should be, and can be, a medium that brings us together, to only make us feel more divided. Not me. Just truth, no bullshit, no troll wars. I will do my damnedest to be a light in the darkness here.”
