Jeremy Paxman: not a fan of Twiitter

Retired Newsnight host Jeremy Paxman has described Twitter users as "people who have got nothing going on in between their ears".

In an interview with Jon Snow for Channel 4 News broadcast ahead of his final show last night (June 18), the BBC veteran was asked why he wasn't on Twitter.

Paxman responded: “Twitter? This is an activity for people who have got nothing going on in between their ears, or nothing going on in their lives.

“I don’t want to lead anyone anywhere. I want to find things out. I have no thoughts that I want to share with people ,” he added. “I don’t want people to follow me.”

Here's the interview in full:
