Neale Hanvey pulled the plug on his social media account over the weekend, deciding it was “very negative” - and not a good use of his time.
The Lang Toun politician will continue to use his Facebook page to connect with constituents.
Mr Hanvey found himself back in the political spotlight as he was sacked from his front bench role as vaccines spokesman at Westminster, just days after being appointed.
His party made the move after he backed an online fundraiser for a defamation case against fellow SNP MP, Kirsty Blackman.
A spokesman for the politician said: “Neale had been using Twitter mostly in a personal capacity and was finding it distracting, very negative, and just generally not a good use of his time.
“He realised after recent events that now was as good a time as any to come off Twitter entirely.”
