“Hello everyone. My husband’s real twitter is @tpnetwork, send him a message!”
Then the follow-up: "Oh noooo! I put the wrong twitter site for my husband!! It's @tp9network. The one I put earlier goes to some porn site!!!! Don't use it!"

"About to say goodbye to twitter…I love my fans so much but the access that the other people have is uncomfortable to me," she wrote.
