Daniel Radcliffe opens up about his absence from social media
The 31-year-old actor does not have an official Twitter account
Hollywood star Daniel Radcliffe says he stays away from social media to avoid getting into fights with random people.
The 31-year-old actor does not have an official Twitter account. During a recent appearance on a TV show, he opened up about his absence from social media.
Asked why he isn't on any social platforms, he said, "I would love to say there's some sort of intellectual, well-thought-out reason for this. I considered getting a Twitter account and I 100 per cent know that if I did, you all would be waking up to stories like ‘Dan Radcliffe gets into fight with random person on Twitter'."
Radcliffe also admitted that he doesn't like the idea of social media because he knows it would negatively impact his mental health in the long run. "When I was younger — not anymore thank god — I would look up comments about myself on the internet and read s*** like that. That is an insane and bad thing to do. And to me, Twitter and everything just feels like an extension of that. Unless I want to go just read all nice things about myself, which also feels like another unhealthy thing to do," he said.
