During an interview in 2018, Dhoni talked about his reluctance to use social media. He said though he uses technology, he uses it in the right way.

Me and technology, there is a big divide. I don't use phones so much and there are a lot of stories I don't pick up phones for. But I do use technology as well. Technology has to be used in the right way.

Dhoni said during an interview in 2018 (via DNA).

He also said everyone in the Indian cricket team is not in a position to question his decision because he has been very successful.
