Last June 3, fans and followers of Maine and loveteam partner Alden Richards were surprised to find her account deactivated.
Maine's brother, Nico Mendoza, was the first to explain the Dubsmash Queen’s disappearance from the social platform.
He said in one of his social media posts, “[Maine] needs a break. Hope y’all understand.
“Don’t worry po, hindi siya galit. But for now, pabayaan muna natin siya.”
Upon her return from Maldives trip, Maine broke her silence regarding the issue and aired out the reason through her blog mainemendoze.com.
She wrote, “Decided to take a break from Twitter too because Twitterworld’s been really toxic lately.
“Do you still remember when everything used to be fun there?
“When Twitter used to be a harmonious environment for everyone? Haha I know, me neither.”
At the event, Maine gave a short message to the negative people on to the press: “Ay nako, itigil niyo na ‘yan! Yun lang.”
SECOND SHOWBIZ ANNIVERSARY. On July 4, Maine celebrated her second year in the showbiz industry.
The 22-year-old Kapuso star remarked, “Sobrang saya, and super feel ko blessed ako with everything I have.
“Dati naman simple na babae, normal na babae lang naman, pero ngayon parang bumongga na yung buhay ko, e.
“Pero ano kasi, e, katuparan ng pangarap ba? 'Yan ang tawag ko dito, kasi since ito yung ‘secret ultimate dream’ ko nun.
“E, ngayon, I’m living the wildest dream.”
In her two years, what was the biggest lesson Maine picked up from the industry?
Maine said, “Hindi lahat ng taong kaharap mo, totoo sa 'yo.”
