Rihanna has told fans to "calm down" after she started following Chris Brown's tweets.

The singer, who tweets from Twitter.com/rihanna, recently added Brown to the list of 384 people she follows on the site, and Brown began following her in return from Twitter.com/chrisbrown. A fan on asked her via the site if it was a sign the two would be reconciled, which led Rihanna to tweet: "It's fucking Twitter, not the altar! Calm down."

The singer later apologised to the fan, who claimed to be 14 years old. Rihanna wrote: "Babygirl I'm sorry, didn't mean to hurt or offend you! Just needed to make it clear to the Navy [Rihanna’s fans]!"

In 2009 Brown was charged with two felonies as a result of an attack on Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time.
