LONDON (AFP) - Britain's Prince Harry has spoken of his hatred for the micro-blogging website Twitter due to its role in the invasion of his privacy, newspapers reported Tuesday.

Harry was speaking to students at an event promoting the upcoming inaugural Invictus Games, a Paralympics-style multi-sports event for wounded service personnel.

The prince, fourth in line to the throne, is behind the creation of the Games, which will take place from September 10 to 14 in London, and was on hand to present certificates to the schoolchildren marking the completion of their social media training.

The 29-year-old encouraged the youngsters to get involved with the Games across social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter - but confessed that he would not be joining them online.
