Cheryl Cole: Rihanna is a free spirit but I want to be a Twitter role model
Cheryl Cole was a late starter with Twitter and - unlike some celebs - doesn't just vent everything she's feeling on the site.
Chezza has no intention of copying the style of good pal Rihanna's Tweets.
'Rihanna is a free spirit and doesn't care if she calls somebody a **** on her Twitter. But there are 12-year-old girls on there,' Cheryl, 28, tells Attitude magazine.
'I didn't grow up with a role model so it's nice to be somebody's guide.'
Cheryl, who popped into Radio 2 yesterday to promote new album A Million Lights, was still a Twitter virgin in 2010, but longed to join because of so many speculative stories about her love life.
This is when I wish I had Twitter,' she explained, 'when I just want to go nuts on it and go: "That's not true, that's not true, that's not true."'
