Instead of his Twitter profile, the page now says the account does not exist.
In recent days an account in Fry's name has appeared on the social network Mastodon, with a post asking other users how it works.
"Well, I’m slowly getting a little more confident and paddling out deeper into the Mastosphere," says a follow up post.
"Trousers now rolled up to the knees and the water not feeling as cold…"
Several other celebs have already left Twitter since Musk took over towards the end of October.
Amber Heard, who was once romantically linked to the businessman, no longer appears to have a Twitter account.
And Ghost star Whoopi Goldberg recently confirmed that she was quitting.
Speaking on US talk show The View, she said the whole thing felt "messy" and that she was "getting off".
"I’m going to get out, and if it settles down and I feel more comfortable, maybe I’ll come back," she said.
"But as of tonight, I’m done."
Model Gigi Hadid also left, saying on her Instagram Stories that Twitter was "becoming more and more of a cesspool of hate and bigotry".
