Keen blogger Stephen Fry gives up Twitter

Monday January 4, 2010

He's kept fans entertained across the globe with his witty Twitter updates, but Stephen Fry has decided to call time on his social networking.

The QI presenter, who has pulled in more than one million followers on his page, is departing the blogging world to concentrate on writing a new book.

"This morning I switch off most of my connections with the outside world, for I have work to do. I must deliver a book to my publishers by the end of April or my soul and testicles will be forfeit," he posted.

"My Twitter stream will dry up for that period," continued the 52-year-old, shown in a picture he once posted of himself stuck in a lift.

"Accept my apologies for what must be, and believe me, no one yearns more keenly for the day when I will be able to be back amongst you all."
