It’s been years now since Imran Khan swore off Twitter and never returned. The actor has some very harsh views on the microblogging site.
Trashing Twitter as an intrusion into his privacy, Imran is quoted as saying by a daily: “I think Twitter is low and cheap and I see no reason to join it. Why should I let people intrude into my life and let them know about my activities 24x7?”
Imran Khan was once active on Twitter but quit it after a barrage of negative, nasty comments. One person had allegedly called him “a loser” on Twitter.
“Anonymity and lack of monitoring makes them say things they would never say at your face,” Imran says.
The actor is presently in the thick of promotions of his film Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobara.
Imran Khan is not the only celeb to have quit Twitter. Shahrukh Khan has been off it many a time but eventually returns. Aamir Khan quit tweeting in 2010 but resumed in 2012. Since then he is very erratic with his tweets, sometimes not adding a post for months.
