Economist Raghuram Rajan said on Friday he did not join microblogging site Twitter as he was not quick to respond to tweets in a few words in 30 seconds.

“I don’t have time. My sense is that in many of these things, once you start engaging, you have to be consistent.. I certainly can’t because I don’t have the ability to think quickly and respond in you know 20-30 seconds in 140 characters,” he said in a lighter note Kochi.

Rajan said this when asked about his absence in the social media during an interaction with reporters.
