Last night President Obama was on US Chat Show Jimmy Kimmel Live and amongst other topics talked tech, and how he can’t use a smartphone, saying “I can’t use phones with recorders in them so a lot of the new-fangled stuff for security reasons I don’t get”.

Unsurprisingly, the US government has super strict requirements on smartphone security – and has relied on Blackberry for this reason for some time.

In the same interview Obama also said “I do not physically tweet in general” when asked about his social media activity.

Kimmel also got Obama to take part in his well known “Mean Tweets” bit:
