You’ve probably heard the saying “celebrities die in threes.” This, of course, is one of the more silly things that a human can utter. But in case you needed someone to fact-check this one for you, the New York Times went to the trouble in an article from 2014:
As if you needed more proof that celebrities live in a different world than us: here’s what happens when an Instagram account with 8 million followers (this particular one shows the 433 soccer account) posts a picture and then gets deluged with likes, comments, emojis, and whatever other notification.

It's a tale as old as time: Celebrity joins Twitter, celebrity gets viciously harassed on Twitter, celebrity becomes a shell of their former self because of Twitter, until finally—celebrity leaves Twitter.
