Elton John has revealed why he doesn't use Twitter - he fears his big mouth would land him behind bars.

"It would end my career,” he told The Sun. “I'd be in prison after about two days. I mean, no, God almighty. Me and my big mouth, no thank you. That would be the end of the career."

Admitting to be something of a technophobe, he also revealed that he will never record a dance record - despite heading to the top of the UK album chart with a collection of remixes by Australian dance band Pnau.

"You won't see me doing a disco record or a dance record or anything like that, because I don't know how," he admits.

"I'm technically a Luddite. I have an iPad but I don't have a phone. I'm not great on a computer, I don't even have one."
