Former Manchester United midfielder Gibson, 25, moved to Everton in January 2012 and was persuaded to reopen his Twitter page by Goodison team-mates, but he insists it was not sensitivity which made him quit in the first place - just the volume of e-mail updates to his mobile phone.
He told the Liverpool Echo: "The first time I was on I didn't get bullied off like everyone thinks I did. Basically what happened was I'd set up the account before we flew off to go to a Champions League game in Germany then turned my phone off.
"When we landed I had like 30,000 followers and all the e-mails were coming through to my phone.
"I didn't know you could go on a computer and switch that off so basically I tried to go to sleep and my phone kept buzzing. I deleted my account and that was it.
"The lads persuaded me to come back on when I joined Everton and the fans have been great to be fair.
"I've not had any hassle or anything so I'm enjoying being on it, it's a good laugh."
