The cleaned-out Twitter account comes shortly after Matt temporarily deleted all of his posts on Instagram.
While the TV personality eventually re-activated his Instagram account, he noticeably took down all of his posts that promoted the show.
Matt’s decision to clean his social media accounts of the show comes shortly after the season finale aired.
During the finale, Matt chose to give his final rose to Rachael, 24.

Despite not getting engaged, the pair pledged to continue their relationship following their time on the show.
The show’s leading man spoke about his decision to end their relationship on the After the Final Rose special, sharing that he realized how “problematic” she was and decided she needed to do some growing and learning.
Matt emphasized that Rachael needed to better herself on her own.

During the finale special, host Emmanuel Acho discussed the status of the strained relationship with Matt and Rachael.
Rachael sobbed as she told Matt: “I’ve never experienced a love like this. I don’t see anyone else out there for me.
“At this point I just don’t see how I can have these same feelings for someone else.”
After the episode aired, Matt shared that he has no plans to rekindle his romance with Rachael.
He revealed he didn’t initially pay much attention to the racism rumors about his girlfriend until the first week of February, which was just two months after the show wrapped filming.

The TV personality explained that “everything came to a head” and he could no longer avoid social media speculation.
He said: “You don’t want to think that someone knows your person better than you, so I’m taking everything with a grain of salt. As it’s continuing to roll out, it just hits a head.
“It continued to come up again, again, and then when it’s addressed formally in the statement that Rachael put out, it’s a devastating blow.”
Rachael is not the only Bachelor Nation star to receive scrutiny from fans this season, as longtime host Chris Harrison, 49, is also facing his own racism scandal.
The host stepped down from the show after he was accused of “perpetuating racism” by defending Rachael.
He told the public to give the disgraced contestant “a little grace, a little understanding” before attacking her for past mistakes.
Following intense backlash from viewers, Chris decided to step away from the show.
