It is no secret that Adele’s management has deliberately relieved her of her Twitter privileges. “I mean I’m not a drinker any more, but when Twitter first came out I was, like, drunk tweeting, and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times,” she admitted to the BBC in 2015. “So my management decided that you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed off by someone, but they’re all my tweets. No-one writes my tweets. They just post them for me. So, yeah, that’s very, very true.”
Following this story, the Sun reports that, at a show in Australia, Adele had told the crowd: “I was looking on Twitter last night. They don’t know I have a secret account. Well obviously they do now because I said that. By ‘they’ I mean my management. I’m not allowed access to my own Twitter because I’m quite mouthy and I say the wrong thing a lot of the time. So they took that privilege away from me.”
It’s unlikely that Adele will reveal herself at all, but it’s equally pleasing and unnerving to know that she is, in fact, reading through Twitter incognito. So, there. Just tweet your heart out to the void. You never know when the queen is listening. Maybe it’s never. But maybe it’s also…always.
