Emma Thompson: "Facebook And Twitter Will Kill Us All"

Emma Thompson absolutely dislikes facebook and twitter and even believes social media will kill us all.  

In a new Vanity Fair interview, Thompson, 55, is asked whether she will ever tweet.

"Listen, I'd rather have root canal treatment FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE than join twitter," Thompson was quoted as saying, noting: "That's not my scene at all."

Thompson went on: "I can't bear the thought of being connected all the time. God knows what it's all doing to us. I hope that everyone does realize that we are all just one giant human experiment at the moment. We are just a great big bunch of little gerbils on wheels."

"In about 25 years time, maybe, a sudden generation will just drop dead," Thompson pointed out, claiming: "Everyone will just die on the same day. And I'll say: "Oh, what do these people have in common? Hang on.They were connected every day 24/7, you know!""

Thompson explained: "And no one knew what it was going to do to them. No one knew! Because we didn't bother to find out. Because we're stupid! We invent stuff, we just fling it out there, we let anyone use it."

Thompson stated: "A three-year-old could f*cking be on Twitter. A three-year-old! And then they go on and on and on about everything that there is. And get reviewed every day by Facebook. And then we will wonder why, at the age of 60, an entire generation chucks itself off a cliff like a bunch of lemmings."

"Actually, that's the most likely outcome, don't you think? It's like: "I can't take this anymore!" It's the lemming generation, I'm telling you," Thompson revealed.

When the mag asked Thompson if she ever Google herself, she replied: "Putting my head in the toilet and flushing it repeatedly would be a more cleansing experience".
