Grey’s Anatomy Creator Shonda Rhimes Is Leaving Twitter… For Now

Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes has seen the show through nine seasons and a spin-off (Private Practice), but everyone needs a break.

We shouldn’t be surprise that she needs a breather every once in awhile, but never expected that she’d leave this important aspect of her life behind. However, it’s happening, and Shonda announced over the weekend that she’s leaving... Twitter! That’s right: the live-tweeting extraordinaire is taking a summer break now that Grey’s Season 9 and Scandal Season 2 are both wrapped, save for a few “odd tweets” now and again.

On Friday, she wrote:

Though we’ll miss her witty and sassy tweets, we’d rather have her writing more important things — you know, Grey’s Anatomy Season 10 (we need to know Richard’s fate!) and Scandal Season 3 (what is happening with Fitz and Olivia?!).

Are you surprised that Shonda is taking a Twitter break? Sound off below!
