Noel Gallagher: 'celebrities bastardise Twitter'

Former Oasis superstar Noel Gallagher has admitted that while social networking has its uses, celebrities take advantage of it and go overboard with self-promotion. 

During an exclusive online interview with Yahoo!, the High Flying Birds singer explained "Facebook and twitter and stuff were started with the best of intentions to connect ordinary people around the world, like daughters travelling in Europe can tweet their mums."

"But as with everything celebrities get involved and bastardise it, trying to sell you their shit. There's too much of that. Anything that's of any use famous people get hold of it and take it for themselves and it gets a bad rap. I'm like sitting here and thinking I hate twitter and I don't know why."
