Too much drunk-tweeting cost Adele direct access to her Twitter account, the singer has confirmed.

"I'm not a drinker anymore," she explained. "But when Twitter first came out I was, like, drunk-tweeting, and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times."

While her posts are indeed screened by management before being approved for the public, Adele says she still writes all of her own tweets.

She shared the details in a newly released clip from her upcoming special, Adele At The BBC, which features her first live performance of "Hello" and an interview with Graham Norton.

The BBC special airs Nov. 20, the same day Adele's new album 25 arrives. A portion of her "Hello" performance can be seen below.
