BERLIN (AP) -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she doesn't really do Twitter, but sometimes visits the site to check out what President Donald Trump has to say.

The chancellor said during a talk with two journalists from German women's magazine Brigitte on Monday, "I do not tweet."

However, Merkel qualified that she does look on Twitter -- especially when she's interested in a specific topic.

Merkel said, "I use it sometimes ... then I enter Donald Trump on Twitter and I have it all" -- a remark that drew big laughs from the audience at a Berlin theater where the chancellor was interviewed.

Merkel added that she doesn't need to see every one of the prolific president's tweets herself because media outlets are doing a good job reporting on his newsworthy ones.
