New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has revealed that he advised News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch to quit Twitter.

According to a report by Yahoo! News, Bloomberg told a reporter for The New York Post: “I’ve told your boss, I think he should stop twittering,” at a news conference in Brooklyn.

He is said to have been fielding questions from a number of city employees who have been disciplined following racist chants made on Twitter, which led to him admitting his surprise that people using social media platforms were unaware that what they wrote could be spread.

“It’s very addictive. It’s easy. You hit a button, and nobody thinks that the rest of the world is looking at them,” said Bloomberg before later claiming that messages on Twitter could also be taken out of context.

Murdoch has not responded to the claim, but has become a regular user of Twitter over the last year.
