Business
tycoon
Elon
Musk
Twitter’s
takeover
as
its
new
CEO
has
been
making
headlines
for
various
reasons.
And
now,
days
after
acquiring
the
microblogging
site
among
several
Hollywood
celebrities
deleting
their
accounts,
actress
Amber
Heard’s
Twitter
account
has
also
disappeared.
The
actress
recently
lost
her
defamation
case
against
her
former
husband,
actor
Johnny
Depp.
She
was
ordered
to
pay
$10.35
million
to
Johnny
after
losing
the
case.

The
Tesla
chief
finalised
the
deal
last
week
for
$44
billion
and
since
then
has
been
taking
major
decisions,
including
laying
off
staff
and
dissolving
its
board
of
directors,
firing
the
platform’s
top
executives,
hiring
Tesla
employees,
and
charging
a
fee
of
$8
for
the
verification
process
of
your
account
or
getting
a
blue
tick
next
to
your
handle’s
name.

Amber
Heard’s
disappearance
from
Twitter
was
first
noticed
by
YouTuber
Matthew
Lewis,
who
is
also
known
as
That
Umbrella
Guy.
He
shared
a
photo
on
Wednesday
(November
2)
that
read,
“This
account
doesn’t
exist.” He
captioned
his
Tweet,
“Amber
Heard
has
deleted
her
Twitter.”
Many
people
reacted
to
this
information.
One
user
wrote,
“So
glad
she
is
taking
care
of
herself.”
Another
one
commented,
“Ex-boyfriend
Elon
told
her
to
delete
it,”
while
one
person
said,
“She
can’t
afford
the
monthly
fee
to
keep
her
checkmark
now.”

Meanwhile,
many
users
joked
that
Musk
still
wants
access
to
Ms.
Heard’s
account.

The
reasons
behind
Heard’s
deletion
of
her
account
are
not
clear.
Before
her,
celebrities
including
Toni
Braxton,
actress
Shonda
Rhimes,
Sara
Bareilles,
Ken
Olin,
and
retired
professional
wrestler
Mick
Foley
had
removed
their
accounts,
reported
NBC
News.

Johnny
Depp
and
Amber
Heard’s
romance
started
on
the
sets
of
The
Rum
Diaries
in
2010,
and
they
got
married
in
2015.
However,
the
couple
separated
the
following
year
and
got
divorced
in
2017.
After
her
separation
from
Depp,
Amber
Heard
started
dating
Elon
Musk,
which
was
the
talk
of
the
town
in
2016.
They
kept
their
relationship
low-key
and
got
separated
after
a
year.
However,
they
got
back
together
again
in
2018
and
again
broke
up
after
staying
together
for
a
couple
of
months.
For
the
uninitiated,
Musk
was
expected
to
testify
during
the
Depp
vs.
Heard
defamation
trial,
but
he
did
not
take
the
stand.

Now
many
are
speculating
that
Amber
Heard’s
Twitter
exit
is
linked
to
her
past
relationship
with
the
billionaire.
“Hmm
looks
like
someone
didn’t
want
their
ex-boyfriend
to
have
access
to
their
account
and
DMs,”
tweeted
Morgan
Tremaine,
a
former
TMZ
employee.
Tremaine
had
testified
at
Heard’s
court
battle
against
Depp.
