TweetsEditAdele stated that she would start Tweeting on the site if her fans began to follow the charity known as Drop4drop, in which her current boyfriend Simon Konecki is the CEO of. Soon after, she began Tweeting. It was through Twitter that Adele had officially given verification that her best friend was Laura Dockrill. She also has begun tweeting pictures of herself, including one of her with a poster including an image of pop-R&B sensation Beyoncé Knowles. Adele also confirmed her work on the song "Skyfall" from the James Bond film of the same name through Twitter, although co-writer and producer Ryan Tedder and publicist Paul Moss both Tweeted about the song ahead of time. (The Tweets were removed quickly after, though.)
Death threats and temporary deletionEdit
After the supposed news of Adele finally giving birth to a child, Twitter suddenly became filled with Tweets criticizing Adele's weight and some even wishing Adele and the newborn death. The most controversial Tweet came from a girl named Vanessa Bieber who said, "Aw Adele gave birth to a baby :') is it fat and Handicapped lol just murder it already lol". The same Twitter account was later deleted from the site. Numerous other comments include many who stated they never knew Adele was pregnant and thought she was "just fat". The Huffington Post, which reported on the controversial Tweets, used two images from the Adele Wiki (as cited by them) in a video.
On November 1, 2012, it was confirmed that Adele had deleted the account due to the horrible comments, with a close source stating that "She couldn’t believe people would be so awful about a baby." Despite this, the account was put back on Twitter soon after, as Adele Tweeted from it after her album 21 reached Diamond status in the US.
