Los Angeles, Feb 17: English singer-songwriter James Blunt says he enjoys being abused online on social networking sites such as Twitter.
The "Bonfire Heart" hitmaker doesn't mind getting nasty messages on Twitter and likes using the social networking website to engage in humour with his critics.
"I used to tweet a lot more because I was being abused and I rather enjoy being abused, because I'm a sado-masochist," contactmusic.com quoted Blunt as saying.
"I was in the army and I was abused much more there! It's only words but I can understand why young people can feel bullied by that kind of thing, but for an adult like myself, it's not abuse, I enjoy it.
"And I really enjoy writing back and having a laugh with them. I don't think we should take Twitter that seriously," he added.
