Jodi Arias, who has remained active on Twitter while in jail, announced that she won’t be using the social media service for a while.

Arias has reportedly been using the service with the help of friends and family members, to whom she conveys what she wants tweeted.

She has a relatively popular account, with over 79,000 followers.

Arias said that as of January 30, she’s not going to tweet for a while, calling it a “temporary” but “probably long-term” move.

“I’m thinking of giving control 2 someone else. Hopefully, they’ll tweet updates & cont. the quote trend, but that will be @ their discretion,” she said. “Whoever takes over this acct. 4 the time being will NOT be representing my views, opinions, philosophies, beliefs, or creeds–but their own.”

She added that she is “crushed with mail.” To anyone sent her mail but doesn’t receive a reply, “know that I hear U & feel your love. I’m humbled,” she said.

Arias was convicted of murdering her boyfriend Travis Alexander but the sentencing phase of the trial ended without a unanimous decision from the jury, prompting a new jury to get picked.

Jury selection begins on March 17.
