The First Minister Mark Drakeford has said that he is not a fan of social media.


Speaking to ITV Wales' Sharp End, Drakeford said that it does not present him with an accurate representation of public opinion.


He said: “On the whole I don’t think it gives you a rounded reflection of what people in Wales are thinking and saying.”


The First Minister also said that online abuse was another reason for his abstention from social media, saying that using it not be good for his well-being.


He said: “There have been times along the journey where we have made difficult decisions which sometimes have been hard for people to see why they have been necessary.


“There have been times where people have been angry and not everybody is careful about the way they express it."
