Emma Stone confirms her Twitter account has been hacked, after an account purporting to belong to the actress posted bizarre tweets.

The Help actress says she only tweeted once before the hacker took over her handle.

The news explains a series of bizarre messages sent from Emma’s account.

Numerous peculiar posts were shared about her boyfriend Andrew Garfield and their The Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-star Shailene Woodley.

"I'm glad you asked me about this. I have never tweeted, my friend," the 24-year-old actress told Ryan Seacrest during an interview on his radio show.

"I've tweeted one time to Seth MacFarlane, I said, ‘Me too, oh boy.' And then I've been hacked ever since, and they've locked me out of my Twitter so I can't access it because they changed my email and my password, so we are trying to figure out how to delete it."

The mystery tweeter recently posted a strange anagram on Emma’s social media account, encrypted as: "Andrew and Shailene sitting in a tree."

The tweets, which were soon deleted, fuelled rumours that Andrew and Emma had split up.

"I heard the other day they tweeted an anagram about Shailene Woodley who is one of my favourite human beings on the planet, and that was absolutely, I swear to you, was not me,” Emma declared.

"That was the first one I heard. And then I heard there was a rich history of other things I've tweeted and deleted, and I didn't know about any of this happening because I don't go on Twitter. I just had a verified account, but now I want to get rid of it because it looks like I'm doing that, which is totally fair, but it's not me."
