Here’s why Stiles is off Twit­ter

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Ju­lia Stiles (right) says Twit­ter is gross be­cause peo­ple like US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump are ac­tive on the mi­cro-blog­ging site. The 36-year-old ac­tor says while she once thought the so­cial me­dia plat­form had a pos­i­tive side by mak­ing peo­ple con­dense their thoughts, now she has de­vel­oped a dis­like for the site, re­ported Con­tact­mu­sic.

“I’ve had an aver­sion to Twit­ter be­cause of Don­ald Trump, I find it gross be­cause of him. I thought there was a pos­i­tive side to hav­ing peo­ple be suc­cinct, and re­duce what they wanted to say in 140 char­ac­ters, but now it feels like it’s shriv­el­ling ideas,” Stiles tells Ra­dio Times mag­a­zine. The Riviera star says she in­stead uses lan­guage learn­ing app Duolingo. “I use a car-share one and Duolingo for lan­guage learn­ing. We filmed ‘Riviera’ in France for seven months, so I’m try­ing to keep up my French now that I’m back home. Some­times I lis­ten to a pod­cast called ‘News in Slow French’ and pre­tend I can un­der­stand it.”
