Kevin Durant is making a change in his life to limit the distractions.

Some athletes like having Twitter at their fingertips, but for Durant, it's unwanted noise. 

ESPN's Darren Rovell broke some interesting news regarding the Oklahoma City Thunder superstar:

Durant later confirmed the decision:

It's not clear if there is a specific reason as to why Durant is deleting his Twitter app, but there's a good chance that Washington Wizards fans have been blowing up his phone with the "#KD2DC" movement.

It may not be the worst thing in the world to delete the Twitter app off his phone—and not just because it gets rid of all of the notifications. Durant found himself at the center of attention last month after tweeting about the San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard.

Durant has more than 7.7 million followers who will no doubt be bummed about not hearing from the NBA superstar quite as often.
