Marchand deletes Twitter, will return if he wants 'to make fun of someone'
Boston Bruins superstar Brad Marchand recently deleted his Twitter account, and he explained why Thursday.
"It's strictly because I'm not paying for Twitter," he said, according to Boston.com's Conor Ryan.
"They took my two-step verification, so I was like, you know what - I'm going to get out now while I can," Marchand continued.
"I'm sure I'll be back on at some point - if I'm bored and want to make fun of someone," he said.
Marchand has long been one of the most active NHLers on social media. He's made waves numerous times responding to criticism and even got into feuds with rival clubs.
Twitter recently removed two-factor authentication via text message for users who aren't signed up for its Twitter Blue subscription service - one of the company's relatively new policy decisions - which costs $8 per month.
Marchand's Bruins have been the NHL's best team by a wide margin this season. Boston entered Thursday at 54-11-5 and with a 20-point lead on the second-place Toronto Maple Leafs in the Atlantic Division.
