Christian Gálvez announced on Monday his decision to leave Twitter, as he considers that the social network has undergone a transformation over time that has turned it into a hostile space plagued by judgments and negative comments. “The time has come to say goodbye to this place”, the presenter has advanced.
The driver of High voltage, the new program that will premiere this Monday, August 2, in the prime time of Telecinco, has written a thread of tweets to justify your departure from the platform: “I have been several days (actually, years) in which I try to find the right words to comment on my decision on Twitter.”
The television face recalled how his first years were in the social network: “When I entered here, back in 2010, it promised to be a very interesting place, a hotbed of good vibes, of sharing things in common, of celebrating successes together and lean on failures, those historical events from which one learns the most. All of that fell apart very soon. “
Gálvez has focused on his personal experience: “I have savored the applause on many occasions (so many that I don’t know how I could thank it), and I have also suffered criticism (poor Leonardo) and it is curious: when one observes all this from a distance, realize that what people applaud is an image that have been created from me, just as when people have criticized me they have also done so from the same place, from that image that they have projected of me. Awards and scars at the same time, as my good friend would say. “
“However, few, very few (and few) know Chris. Not to Christian Gálvez, to Chris. I’ll tell you one thing about me: we all, in one way or another, have changed during the pandemic. For better or worse, who knows? I personally have changed to try to become who I want to be, and he’s just a guy from Móstoles who wants to entertain and be happy, “he added.
“And after so much sadness, so much death around me (in my case, many losses), I have decided to be happy, enjoy what I do and not always have the cruel Twitter thermometer on my shoulders. I don’t think it reflects the reality. Not all, at least “, has expressed, valuing that, perhaps, sins of being” too optimistic “, “But this is not a healthy place.”
About to premiere Alta Tensión, the presenter is not willing to be the object of criticism or comparisons: “It has been a real honor to have you close amid so much anger. After so much time away from TV, I want to go back and enjoy, be happy while the adventure lasts. Criticism will fall, comparisons will rain or you will praise our work, but I won’t be there to read it. ”
“The biggest (best and worst at the same time) criticism will be the audience, and if we fall, we will rise again. And if we succeed, we will celebrate it again, but I will not keep an eye on this place to search a kind word amid so much anger and indignation “, has expressed that of Móstoles.
To close his message, the writer also spoke about how he will invest his time from now on: “I think we should all look for that corner of peace, that place where people are happy about what we do, that we generate synergies that we share ideas. I will dedicate myself to enjoying my work at Mediaset with High voltage while it lasts, to take advantage of the time with my muse Almudena Cid, to create ad infinitum with Víctor Parrado on Cadena 100, do television with Fenix Media Tv and practice Kenjutsu … “.
