Ben Stiller will only use twitter for "sensible" issues.
The 'Zoolander' star has his own page on the networking site but unlike other celebrities, he doesn't want to give away every detail about his life but does accept it can be used for good causes.
Ben - who is currently at the Berlin Film Festival - said: "I like to use twitter. You have direct contact to your fans and can stop when you feel it's too much. And on the other hand twitter can help a lot. After the catastrophe in Haiti we were able to start a few charity actions really quickly for example.
"But maybe I should write what sort of burger I ate in Berlin and how great that was, too. No, really, there are sources you can use like twitter. But I want to use them in a sensible way. And not waste them."
However, Ben does admit twitter is a good way of communicating for those people who don't really enjoy talking.
Talking about his role as Robert Greenberg in new movie 'Greenberg', the actor told website morgenpost.de: "He doesn't talk much. He doesn't do much. He is just thinking about himself. This new form of communication, people who talk to each other again but in a new sort of way, it could work for him."
