Speaking at a business conference in Montreal, Canada, Stone said that using Twitter for hours at a time "sounds unhealthy".

"I like the kind of engagement where you go to the website and you leave because you've found what you are looking for or you found something very interesting and you learned something," the Guardian quoted him as telling the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal on Wednesday.

"I think that's a much healthier engagement. Obviously, we want you to come frequently," he stated.

As reported by Montreal Gazette, the social networking guru also said there were no plans to increase Twitter's 140-character limit.
