Actor Ryan Reynolds has admitted he was “nervous” about signing up to Twitter when he created his account eight months ago.

The “Green Lantern” star – who created an account on the microblogging site only eight months ago – said he thought he was “too late” to join the site, reported Contactmusic.

“I was nervous. It was something that I saw as obviously a huge part of the zeitgeist, but after I’d gone five or six years without ever touching it, I thought that it was too late to get involved now,” he said.

But the 38-year-old actor – who has six-month-old daughter James with wife Blake Lively – was convinced to stay active on the account after his online fans assured his movie “Deadpool” would go ahead.

“The movie got green lit based on those people on Twitter. I need to connect with these people. It’s also for promoting a movie these days and to do the kinds of unorthodox pushes that we’re going to be doing for ‘Deadpool’ you have to have social media.”
