Graham Norton won't be using Twitter anymore

Graham Norton has announced he is done with Twitter on his BBC Radio 2 show, and plans on sticking with Facebook from now on.

Despite having over 1.2 million followers, the Cork presenter has said he's just not into it anymore as there is so much nastiness on the social media site.

"I prefer Facebook because I have real friends there who agree with me. But on Twitter, not so much.

"I have kind of fallen out of love with Twitter. It’s not a happy world so I have left it."

However, his Twitter account has not been shut down and is still posting automated links to his regular column in The Telegraph, but Graham has not tweeted himself since June 22nd.


He follows in the footsteps of Stephen Fry who quit Twitter again this year following a gaffe at the BAFTA's in February, saying at the time; "Think of it as not much more than leaving a room. I like to believe I haven’t slammed the door, much less stalked off in a huff throwing my toys out of the pram as I go or however one should phrase it. It’s quite simple really: the room had started to smell. Really quite bad."

So that's at least two witty, intelligent people we've lost from Twitter this year.

Cheers, trolls.
