The controversial Good Morning Britain presenter has been offered £1 million to leave Twitter for a year.
The founder of HushHush.com, an online marketplace dubbed “Amazon for millionaires”, is offering Piers Morgan £1m to quit posting on Twitter.
This is following Piers’ resolution earlier this year to continue annoying as many members of the public as possible. After analysing his Twitter profile for social sentiment, HushHush.com found that only 10% of interactions with Piers Morgan were positive.
My New Year’s Resolution for 2019 is to be just as annoying, argumentative & insufferably right about everything as I’ve been in 2018. Zero apologies in advance to all whiny PC-crazed snowflake imbeciles who will be horrifically offended by absolutely everything I say or write.

Piers Morgan is notorious for his prolific Twitter posts and getting into public spats with celebrities and members of the public. As well as the content of his tweets, he’s also known for the frequency of them, and it’s not uncommon for him to post more than 22 tweets in a 24-hour timeframe.
However, the presenter has already poo-pooed the offer saying it would cost at least £10 million to make him think about the offer.
It would take a lot more than that to get off me off Twitter.
Try £10m a year & I’ll think about it. https://t.co/lTI2P17Rx0

Aaron Harpin, founder and CEO of HushHush.com said, “They say that money can’t buy happiness, but this offer comes pretty close. At HushHush.com, we make people’s dreams come true with luxurious products and experiences, but none sound better than this. Imagine 365 days of Piers-free bliss online! This isn’t being stretched to Piers’ TV appearances but at least it’s easier to turn the TV off than to avoid him online!
“Personally, I just cannot understand how someone can be so opinionated all the time. My only fear is that he could come back worse than before, but it’ll be a nice break. I hope if he accepts it will go towards making Twitter a more pleasant social media platform.”
