Hugh Laurie Addicted to Twitter

Hugh Laurie

by Daniel Falconer | 30 October 2013

Hugh Laurie is now a regular Twitter user after saying he wasn't a fan and did not "understand" the social networking site.

The former 'House' star appeared on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' alongside Celine Dion on Tuesday (29.10.13) and the chat show host found out he had joined the micro-blogging site.

Afterwards, Jimmy tweeted: "Hugh Laurie is officially on twitter. But you'd never guess his name - it's @Jlumbrozo. Seriously. It is. Welcome Hugh. (sic)"

The actor and musician, who has released his critically-acclaimed debut, Let Them Talk, posted: "Having damned this technology as the seed of Satan, I finally succumb. Let tyrants tremble. And so forth."

The 54-year-old actor previously said he "does not understand" the social networking phenomenon, despite pal Stephen Fry being an avid user.

But although he didn't participate much until now, he said his friend's comments were "the absolute best - the cream of the crop".
