Shashank Khaitan, director of films like Good Newwz and Dhadak, deactivated his Twitter account on Monday, calling it a 'breeding ground for hate and negativity'.

Khaitan said he was done with the micro-blogging platform which could have been used to create a better world, but people chose to spread hate instead.

"Done with twitter... just a breeding ground for hate and negativity... very sad that a platform so powerful, could not be used to create a better world... praying for peace and love always... deactivating my account now ... @Twitterindia," he tweeted quitting the site.

It is not clear what exactly triggered the move. After quitting Twitter, he posted the news on Instagram too.

"Finally deleted my twitter account... I am surely inconsequential, in terms of followers and reach for the platform... but I believe every voice is important... hope such a powerful platform can evolve and reform to spread love and happiness ... Praying for a peaceful world always," he said.

A few days ago the writer-director took to social media to caution people about fake casting calls for his film 'Mr Lele'. In an Instagram post, Khaitan warned people about the fake casting scam.
