Lena Dunham took to the Golden Globes' red carpet to announce a drastic decision to step away from her Twitter account. As she explained via dramatic hand gesture to fellow creative, Ryan Seacrest, she "is trying to create a safer space for herself emotionally." This decision follows an earlier decision to attend the much Tweeted about awards show in a dress by Zac Posen, who once was her babysitter.
