Professor Green: Twitter's a laugh

Professor Green has insisted his spats with followers on Twitter are "a bit of a giggle".

The Read All About It rapper regularly challenges his detractors on the social networking site - but insisted it was all a bit of fun.

"I'm not sitting there seething, going, 'Oh you...' A lot of the people that say bad things to me aren't that intelligent and it's quite easy to just turn it. I don't battle any more, I came up battling and I don't really have anyone to argue with any more so I just vent all of that through Twitter."

He added: "I just find it a bit of a giggle."

The star - real name Stephen Manderson - said he didn't let negative comments get to him.

"Not at all but in the same respect I don't let people's compliments go to my head either. As much as I appreciate and don't appreciate the positive and negative, it's like the only opinions that really matter to me are those people I really know."

And he expressed disgust at the Twitter abuse received by new mum Adele from online trolls.

"It's weird isn't it, I think maybe these things would have been said years ago but there wouldn't have been a social platform for people to have their words heard or seen," he said.

"Now there is and it's just the world that we're in, isn't it?"

Before long, others will recognise the merit of this idea and lend their support. It will be especially helpful to get the approval of an educational leader. Making resources more readily available to the public is a worthwhile mission. You especially enjoy seeing children benefit from your hard work. Thanks to you, they'll have better opportunities for advancement.More
