Shonda Rhimes, the creator of "Grey’s Anatomy," said Twitter is "an exercise in torture," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Rhimes made the comments during an Emmys roundtable. "I sort of don’t know why I get on there. It’s a little like inviting people who hate you into your house to say mean things to you," she said.
She added that the micro-blogging site is useful for dealing with the press. "Twitter is most useful for talking to the press because if I tweet something, reporters will pick it up and put it on paper. I don’t have to get on the phone," she noted.
