Singer Elton John refuses to sign up to the social networking site Twitter, as he knows he would get into trouble almost straight away.

“It would end my career. 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,” contactmusic.com quoted John as saying.

Even if he did decide to join Twitter, John admits he would find it difficult because he struggles with the latest technology.

“You won’t see me doing a disco record or a dance record or anything like that, because I don’t know how. 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.”
