Singer Cheryl Cole's account is finally active

Cheryl Cole joined Twitter in July but she’s only just got round to writing her first ever Tweet.

The Girls Aloud star and axed US X Factor judge has racked up more than 181,000 followers on the social networking site since she signed up.

‘It’s me CC! WHERE MY SOLDIERS AT…….?!!! I can’t believe what my fingers are doing but yes I’m tweeting :-s so here goes…X,’ Cheryl, 28, Tweeted this morning.

Despite her upbeat message and the fun of her cameo appearance in a Hollywood movie, Cheryl‘s said to be struggling to keep positive since the new series of X Factor launched in the UK this month. 

‘This time of year is normally so exciting for Cheryl, especially with the cloak and dagger aspect of keeping her acts secret,’ says our source.

‘Now, by comparison, things are soul-destroying.

‘She’s turning into a recluse. Even production on her album has hit a wall.’
