Rihanna Takes Control of Twitter Account

Seems like a bevy of artists are taking to Twitter these days and having fun while doing it. Kanye West jumped on the bandwagon recently, earning a whopping 845,000 (and counting) followers since he first logged on the social networking site in July. Even 50 Cent went on a tweeting spree earlier this week, bashing his grandmother for forcing him to take out the garbage and accusing Tony Yayo of stealing some of his money, all in jest of course. Now, Rihanna is following in her hip-hop peers’ footsteps by reclaiming her Twitter account.

The “Love the Way You Lie” collaborator has had a page on the social networking site for quite some time, but it was apparent that the singer was never the one tweeting to her fans. With constant album promo messages and links to interviews, the less-than-personal exchanges were masterminded by a record label associate rather than Rihanna herself.

As of yesterday (Aug. 27), the Bajan chanteuse adamantly revealed she would be personally sending out tweets, which would be far from “corny.”
