Hugh Laurie: ‘I Don’t Understand Twitter’

Posted by Adam

Hugh LaurieHugh Laurie doesn’t understand Twitter.

The House actor has signed up to the popular social networking site and has gained thousands of followers — but he thinks it’s all pretty pointless.

“As I look around my friends’ tweets I see banality on all sides. I don’t understand the purpose of it,” he said.

“I think if people were able to take these 140 characters [allowed in each post] and develop a poetic Western form — a haiku of our own in which all human existence could be compressed into those 140 characters — that would be a satisfying thing, but that’s not what I see when I read them.”

    “The House actor has signed up to the popular social networking site and has gained thousands of followers”

    Pretty much doubt that fact.(he also never said that in the interview)
    The user with the name “Hugh Laurie” on twitter is not him, so his real twitterpage is probably protected.
