Hamilton might stop using Twitter

1,138 views

Oct.11 (GMM) Lewis Hamilton has admitted he might stop using the popular social media service Twitter.

The McLaren driver has come unstuck with his 'Tweets' this year; infamously publishing secret team telemetry and, most recently, accusing teammate Jenson Button of disrespect by 'unfollowing' him.

However, it turned out Button never followed the 2008 world champion, and Hamilton has not issued a single 'Tweet' ever since.

For me it's just amazing that we're sat here talking about this, here at a Grand Prix.

"I think in my life I am going to make lots of mistakes and that was one of them," he said in Korea on Thursday.

"But you learn from your mistakes and maybe Twitter is not the one for me."

Button was also asked about Hamilton's Twitter problems on Thursday, and was forced to explain why he follows active drivers like Pedro de la Rosa, Paul di Resta and Mark Webber, but not his own teammate.

"There are millions of people to follow on Twitter," he told reporters. "I see him (Hamilton) every weekend."

Button also follows Sauber driver Sergio Perez, who is replacing Hamilton in 2013.

"I follow him (Perez) because I purposely wanted to say welcome. And now I can't unfollow him. I'm not allowed to do anything on Twitter these days.

"For me it's just amazing that we're sat here talking about this, here at a Grand Prix."

Button admitted Hamilton had apologised for accusing him of disrespect.

"You have to be careful what you put on Twitter. We've got over a million followers," he added.
