The interactive film was released last week, and fans have been enjoying trying to make their way through the different outcomes.

Bandersnatch centres on the difficult adaptation of a book into a video game by a group of software developers, and has several different endings which are chosen by viewers.

Will plays game creator Colin Ritman, and he tweeted to say he was 'nervous' before the Black Mirror flick was released.

After the release on the 28th December, Will received comments from viewers about his appearance, taking aim at his looks.

Last night, he took to Twitter to announce that he was 'changing his relationship with social media'.

Will wrote: "In light of my recent experiences I am choosing to take a step back, of sorts, from Twitter.

"Before I do, I'd like to say a heartfelt thank you to everybody who has watched Bandersnatch and for their responses (whatever they may be) to the material we created.

"I accept all criticisms and it's been a delight to learn that so many of you enjoyed what many people worked very hard to produce!"

He continued: "As we all know there is balance to be struck in our engagements with social media. There are positives to enjoy and inevitable negatives that are best avoided.

"It's a balance I have struggled with for a while now and in the interest of my mental health I feel the time has come to change my relationship with social media.

"I am privileged to have this platform. I hope that this shift to reduce my personal expression and increase the focus on issues that matter will result in a better outcome for everyone.

"This is not the end. Consider it an alternative path. With love, Will."

Will also added that he would continue to tweet for anti-bullying organisations.
