The 'Atlanta' creator and rapper has deleted all of his tweets and changed his account name to "Donald."

Donald Glover has been making a number of announcements lately, from the birth of his son and his partnership with RCA Records to his upcoming fourth studio album and the retiring of his musical alter ego, Childish Gambino.

Here’s another one. The Atlanta creator has officially retired the name Childish Gambino on his Twitter account, changing his name from Childish Gambino to Donald and deleting all of his tweets.

The rapper attended the Black Panther premiere Monday night (Jan. 30), before sending his last tweet, “black panther was beautiful. We should keep celebrating. Who’s out here?” The tweet has since been deleted, and his Instagram account has been wiped clean as well.

Glover pulled another social media disappearing act back in 2013, just after announcing the pilot for Atlanta in 2013. He removed all the content from his Twitter and Instagram, replacing everything with a black box.
