London: Funnyman Russell Brand is stepping away from social media and his YouTube channel to focus on "learning".
The 40-year-old comedian announced he would be stepping away from Twitter, Facebook and his YouTube series "The Trews", reported Daily Telegraph.
"I'm not going to be doing 'The Trews', I'm not going to be on Twitter, or Facebook, I'm going to be learning because I know real change is coming and I want to be part of that.
"I'm going away to think and to learn, because it's worth it and there is a possibility of change. Trew be continued. We will be ending on a bad pun. Goodbye for now," he said in a video.
The Essex funnyman hasn't said it's a permanent move but he feels he has gone "as far as he can" with his political news show.
"I think we've gone as far as we can with the Trews for now." He then said goodbye to his 10.7 million Twitter followers.
"Final episode of the Trews - goodbye, also off Twitter for a while (sic)," Brand wrote.
