Sheamus Explains Why He Does Not Use Twitter



Gizmodo.com last week did an interview with 2012 Royal Rumble winner Sheamus. Here is an excerpt from the interview when they talked about using Twitter.

“My stance on Twitter right now is this. I understand how valuable a tool it is, it’s great and all. But to me, when I was growing up with WWE superstars, you didn’t have the instant access to them the way that people have to our superstars — or anyone in the pop culture environment now.

It just seems that there’s too much direct access, so the mystique is gone. It just feels like that mystique isn’t there any more.”

People like The Rock, or Triple H, or Stone Cold, they made their name in the ring, in what they did on television, and that’s what I want to be remembered for.

I don’t want to be remembered for some tweet I said. It could be a comment about something, or “I’m off to eat a banana sandwich right now” or “I just bought a new pair of socks“. I just feel there has to be a little bit of a break away from the ring; I want to be remembered for what I do on WWE television in the ring, at Wrestlemania or The Royal Rumble.

I think me not having Twitter, creates a bit of mystique about me, and I think that’s a good thing, especially when everybody else has it and I don’t. I feel that separates me from everyone else.

I understand the value of Twitter; everybody’s on Twitter now and I understand that. Things could change, and there may be a time where I have to go and get a Twitter account.”

“I used to work for Symantec AV; I worked as their in-house IT technician, and then I worked as specialised AV support, and then I worked for Hartford life IT, in Dublin and London. I worked in IT from ’99 through to 2007.”
