    It happens to the best of us. It’s late at night, and you’re a couple drinks in when immediately that sudden urge takes over: You just **must** log onto Twitter to rant, gush, subtweet, or profess what will undoubtedly be unrequited love. Basically, you want to spout regrettable things for as long your thumbs will allow it.

    Believe it or not, Adele is human and has done this before. And she’s gotten into a little trouble because of it. During a fan Q&A that will air as part of her upcoming BBC special, the UK powerhouse revealed that her drunk tweeting cost her her Twitter access. Indeed, Adele — a grown woman — is not allowed to post her own 144-character 140-character thoughts (I’m inebriated, clearly).

    “I’m not a drinker anymore, but when Twitter first came out, I was like, ‘You’re drunk tweeting,’ and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times,” she explained. “So my management decided, ‘You have to go through, like, two people, and it has to be signed off by someone.'”

    Watch a clip of her great reveal below; the video also includes brief footage of her very first live performance of new single “Hello”.
