Oh, and all this fuss was over an account that had 826 followers. We get that Twitter is a big company full of people with all sorts of different responsibilities, but maaaybe they have better things they should be doing. Like putting this level of thought and personal response into harassment reports? Or tweaking the look of all the buttons again, whichever.
Adele's People Banned Her For Tweeting Drunk
This story is a little different, but hey, you've earned it. Mega pop star and bad counter Adele used to drunk-tweet, and totally got busted for it by her management, like the celebrity version of your parents catching you picking the lock on their liquor cabinet.
According to the singer of "Hello" and presumably other work that we've long forgotten because "Hello" has been so relentlessly drilled into our heads that the concept of other songs has become a vague abstraction, she used to Tweet while drunk, and nearly said a few things that would've been bad for her image. She no longer drinks, but she still isn't allowed to Tweet directly. If she wants to, say, thank someone for being called a cracker, she has to write the text out for her team to look at and post -- if they approve of it. Since it's unlikely that a group of people dedicated entirely to making Adele look as wonderful as possible would sign off on "Taylor Swift? More like Taylor SLOW. Because she's DUMB," don't expect her to be involved in any internet beef anytime soon.
But if you're truly desperate to see some unfiltered Adele, you can try to track down the secret personal account she claims she has. Presumably it's full of crude insults alongside the odd extended analysis of why Adele's music is so great.
