The 'Man from U.N.C.L.E.' star was surprised with how "easy" it was from him to walk away from the social media site.

Speaking at TheWrap's Screening Series in Los Angeles, he said: "I just have no impulse control so if somebody says something stupid, I couldn't help but say something back, and then it just exploded. This is a toxic environment, and my life is way better off. It's so funny - People are so addicted and into Twitter, it seems crazy that someone could walk away from it! They're like, 'Wait, he deleted it?' It was actually really easy."

Meanwhile, Armie previously spoke up about how he is glad the "system has been shaken" in Hollywood in relation to the sexual misconduct allegations made against certain producers and actors.

He said: "It's been permissible for too long for people in positions of power to abuse, and for the powerless to be expected to just take it. The system seems to be shaken, and thank God ....

"Nate had the stuff in his past, which is heinous and tough to get beyond. I get that. But that was when he was 18 and now he's in director jail. At the same time, the guy who went and won an Academy Award has three cases of sexual assault against him. And [Parker] had one incident - which was heinous and atrocious - but his entire life is affected in the worst possible way.

"And the other guy won the highest award you can get as an actor. It just doesn't make sense, you know? I'm not saying Nate should not have been in trouble. I'm saying that they got in different levels of trouble. And that's the disparity. It's like there are two standards for how to deal with someone who has this kind of issue in their past, you know?"
