Los Angeles, Feb 4 (IANS) Actor Sylvester Stallone feels that telling strangers about one's personal life on social networking site Twitter is of no use.

The 66-year-old says there is no point in using Twitter unless someone wants publicity. The actor's last tweet was July 12 last year.

"I used to tweet but it's an act of futility. You're not really making any impact and if you find yourself in a mood when you wanna be a bit controversial and you post something, you suddenly realise, 'Oh my god!' because you've opened yourself up to a bunch of criticism from strangers," Nuts magazine quoted Stallone as saying.

"It might be a great promotional tool, but just to make small talk, it's crazy," he added.
