Alec Baldwin deactivates Twitter account

London: `30 Rock` star Alec Baldwin has deactivated his Twitter page following allegations that his wife was posting messages online during James Gandolfini`s funeral.

The couple paid their respects to `The Sopranos` star at a church in New York City, and an online report suggested Baldwin`s partner Hilaria Thomas had been tweeting throughout the service, reported Daily Star.

Initially, the 55-year-old actor brushed off the allegations by posting a simple message on the website, writing, "Someone wrote that my wife was tweeting at a funeral. Hey. That`s not true. But I`m gonna tweet at your funeral".

However, he returned to his Twitter page later in the day to rant about the report, writing, "My wife and I attend a funeral to pay our respects to an old friend... How much of this are people supposed to take? With these blatant lies every day. My wife did not use her phone, in any capacity, at our friend`s funeral. Now, I am going away from Twitter and good luck to all of you who know the truth."
