“I've already gotten a lot of death threats for about eight years… the backlash has already started,” the stand-up comic and Trainwreck actor said last night at the Elle Women in Hollywood gala. “I've been getting backlash since 2006. I've been getting death threats.”

“I know everybody is sick of me and I need to be treated for overexposure,” she said jokingly, but added defiantly “I'm not going to stop. Gloria Steinem said to me that the most important thing is don't burn out. She said we want change so quickly that it could feel discouraging.”

Lena Dunham has announced that she no longer uses Twitter and now has somebody else posting updates on her behalf, citing a recent barrage of what she describes as “verbal abuse”.

The ‘Girls’ creator, who also recently suggested that the hit HBO show would end after a sixth season, was speaking to Kara Swisher on the ‘Re/code Decode’ radio podcast. She said earlier this year that she no longer had Twitter on her phone, but that she still composed tweets and sent them to a friend who was posting in her place, saying “we gotta create systems that make us feel safe”.

However, she’s now elaborated on the relationship she has with the social media site. “I don’t look at Twitter anymore. I have a really great person [who tweets for me]. I tweet, but I do it through someone else,” Dunham said. “I don’t even know my Twitter password. Which may make me seem like I’m no longer a community user, and that would be true.”
