LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tom Bergeron is leaving "America's Funniest Home Videos" at the end of next season, but William Shatner is not quitting Twitter.

The two became linked when Bergeron announced this week that he would step down as host of the show next year. That prompted Shatner to tweet that he was inspired by Bergeron to tweet no more.

But that was only a shared joke with his pal Bergeron, according to Shatner's publicist, Putnam & Smith. The "Star Trek" actor, a prolific tweeter, has nearly 1.8 million followers.

The proof Shatner is still tweeting is online. Among his messages Thursday was one calling attention to National Coconut Torte Day and National Potato Chip Day, both this week. "Cake and chips," Shatner posted on Twitter.
