Pictures celebrities should not have put on Twitter.... Demi Moore
At one point during 2010 Demi Moore pretty much lived on Twitter. There were pictures of her and Ashton, her and her underwear and most famous of all, the bikini pics she posted on holiday. Not bad going for a 48-year-old.
Kim Kardashian
Realising she could get in on the act, hardly a week goes by in which Kim Kardashian doesn't treat her legions of loyal followers to a flash of her cleavage in a bikini. Just put them away Kim, we've seen enough already.
Katy Perry
No stranger to showing us the more intimate moments of life in the Brand household, Katy Perry shows us how her and Russell have a good time in the bedroom.
Russell Brand
While husband Russell takes the opportunity to show us how he likes to relax with a good book.
Lindsay Lohan
If there is one thing that Lindsay Lohan doesn't need it is more publicity. Using her twitter account she gives us this nearly topless picture. "I'm THAT bored," wrote Lindsey. So are we, we might have retweeted.
Peaches Geldoff
What Peaches Geldof does when she isn't on Twitter is anyones guess but as she rarely seems to be snapped wearing clothes we can forgive her this tweet from a balcony in Los Angeles.
Courtney Love
Courtney Love uses her twitter account to show the world what a rapidly ageing rock chick with too many tattoos and not enough make-up looks like.
Amber Rose
Not content with flashing her curves in adverts and music videos, model Amber Rose hits her twitter account in a tiny pink bikini.
Miranda Kerr
Back to work after three months, Miranda Kerr uses her account to show the world how happy a breast feeding Victoria's Secret models can actually be. Why Miranda. Why ?
Lenny Kravitz
The beauty of modern technology is that even an ageing rocker who hasn't produced a decent song in years can get in on the act. For no explicable reason, Lenny Kravitz shares his bathtime routine.

Everton footballer Shane Duffy has denied posting a message in support of the IRA that appeared on his Twitter account.

The 21-year-old Premier League star, who is also a Republic of Ireland international, said someone took his phone and posted the message without his knowledge.

He later apologised for any offence caused and tweeted: "so much hate on something I didn't do.. Fair enough gotta take it because its my twitter. And again It was not me who tweeted ..."

Duffy, who is originally from Derry, played for Northern Ireland to Under 21 level, before switching to the Republic in 2010.
