Well known actor Stephen Fry has quit Twitter, because it has become a “stalking ground for the sanctimoniously self-righteous who love to second-guess, to leap to conclusions and be offended”.

He added that this Twitter mob is offended on behalf of others they do not even know. “It’s as nasty and unwholesome a characteristic as can be imagined,” said Fry.

“It doesn’t matter whether they think they’re defending women, men, transgender people, Muslims, humanists … the ghastliness is absolutely the same.”

“It makes sensible people want to take an absolutely opposite point of view. I’ve heard people shriek their secularism in such a way as to make me want instantly to become an evangelical Christian,” said Fry.
