Ashton Kutcher was one of the first celebrities to really take to Twitter and start sharing the personal details of his life before the media could do so for him.

However, the 38-year-old actor says he's changed his ways these days.

Sitting down with Parade, Kutcher opens up about why he's decided to pull back on using his social media platforms for personal reasons. "At one point I thought, 'Heck, if I share things first and I have control what it is that I'm sharing, maybe it'll devalue the tabloid story fodder,'" he explained.

"Ultimately, that came to be something that was untrue," he added. "Now the things that I share on social media are stories that inspire ideas, that connect people, that educate people."

Another factor may be for the protection of his and Mila Kunis' 18-month-old daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, who Kutcher says has totally changed his entire life.

"[Having a child] takes whatever table you're sitting at, flips it upside down and switches all your priorities around," he dished. "It's unexplainable. I have a new number-one priority. Only parents understand the absolute awe of parenthood."

Amid juggling becoming a first-time parent, Kutcher is also busy saddling up for his new Netflix series, The Ranch, on which he partnered with That '70s Show co-star Danny Masterson, premiering April 1.

So how does he do it all? "You hire really great people," he explained. "I'm surrounded by carefully curated, great people...[and] I always like to stay busy. The thing I enjoy doing most is work."
