When it comes to Twitter not everyone is a fan.... and there is one royal that can attest to that.

Prince Harry has just come out with his lack of support for the birdy social media site, during a Q&A for the Invictus Games today, a Paralympic-style competition for wounded soldiers.

"I would love to get involved an go on social media and if it was for causes like this I really would," the royal said of games. "The issue for myself and my family, put quite simply, is that it's very hard for me to tweet about the Invictus Games and tweet about something that means a lot to me, whereas I at the same time really quite hate Twitter by the invasion of privacy."

The 29-year-old made the remark while speaking to 60 students who were being trained on how to be "digital champions," and were learning how to promote the event through Facebook and Twitter.

While Prince Harry used to be an avid social media user, he states that he isn't anymore, however, he hopes that he's lack thereof doesn't stop the students from showing their support for the games.

"The more noise and the more enthusiasm you guys can get behind the Invictus Games get your friends involved, buy some tickets, come down and scream and shout," the royal states. "I promise you, you will not regret it, it will be the most amazing weekend of your lives."

Harry also goes on to state that this event holds a special place in his heart because it is to recognize soldiers from all over the world who have given a piece of themselves in order to keep their countries safe.

"For me this is an opportunity for the British public to say thank you to these people from across the world for their service. You only hear about the guys who die, you never hear about the injuries," he explains. "So to give this opportunity to all these guys who have been injured and managed to survive thanks to the amazing medical care we have nowadays, I think that's a really powerful message to send to everybody."
