The British actor, who is promoting his new crime drama Imperium, told Sky News he was happy to let the digital world pass him by and remain blissfully unaware of what was being said about him.
“I know it would not be a good idea for me,” said the Harry Potter star.
“There will be a time in my life, like when I have kids or whatever, when I want, when I need to make a case for my privacy and I think it’s much harder to do that if you’ve been using your public image to trade off for a while.
“Also, frankly, I would get in fights.
“If I was on Twitter and I saw something pop up about me, or for instance, there was a guy who was one of the first guys to write about Swiss Army Man (a film starring Radcliffe) on Twitter and he was just slamming it.
“If I had been on Twitter I would have got into a serious confrontation with that guy. That’s not a good idea, nobody ever wins when you are fighting on Twitter.”
In the 27-year-old’s latest film he plays an FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate a neo-Nazi organization. It is a continuation of Radcliffe’s mission to dramatically step away from his most famous Harry Potter character.
Imperium, which sees him sporting a shaved head and spewing racial hatred, is in cinemas this weekend.
