Sean Lock has suggested that Twitter is used by people who are "sad" and "needy".

The comedian told Metro that he did not see the point of the social networking website.

Lock said: "I know loads of people who do it and I don't understand it. It's a medium for comedians to get rid of shoddy, half-baked ideas that wouldn't make it into a comedy set. It seems like it's for sad, needy people who should have a word with themselves."

Asked if he was tempted to sign up to see how many followers he could amass, he continued: "There's something very macho about that - about how many followers you have. Jesus had followers but he had something important to say, not, 'Had a bath, watched Sex And The City'. It's not healthy.

"All these people who are receiving your messages - sitting at bus stops, or at home with the family - they're not engaged with the world, they're checking their f**king phone and you're just adding to that white noise of bulls**t."

Lock added: "There's someone on Twitter who pretends to be me but as long as he doesn't say anything damaging, I don't care. Let him get on with it."
