Dude. Chill out.

“Twitter? I’ve never sent an email to anybody. I believe in keeping the postman in work. It has resulted in a lot of letters not being sent. When I arrived [in parliament] I learnt how to do all the letters myself as I used to work in the pit and represent people at tribunals. With this ‘social media’, instead of letters you get emails. They’re all written in a hurry, with no punctuation, no paragraphs – it’s one continual stream, with spelling mistakes. Quite frankly I think it’s a world I don’t need. But I have to read them all because people say, ‘Did you get my letter?’ And it’s not even a letter! It’s a scrawl on a screen!”
