The Monty Python star opened an account on Twitter in October (12), but he has not enjoyed the experience and blames "rude" users for putting him off.

Welll....does he regret it for the right reasons?

I mean, if everyone was fawning all over him, would he like it then? Is it only because his skin is a little thin and he cares a bit too much what the general public think that is causing his distaste?

There are lots of reasons to shun social media like Twitter and Facebook which is why I don't use them.

Eric Idle is my favorite

I don't blame him from regreting something like that. People can be cruel.
