Gary Numan 'cautious' over Twitter posts
Pop star Gary Numan has vowed to be more "cautious" about his musings on Twitter.com after finding his posts picked up by media around the world.
The singer regularly gives fans a glimpse into his day-to-day activities with his messages, which have included details about his home life and his wife Gemma's recent facelift.
Just last month Numan revealed he lost his wedding ring when he was trying his hand at animal husbandry on a farm - but the star is planning to cut back on the amount of information he shares with followers.
He tells the Daily Mail, "I've only just got into Twitter and I had no idea people would read it. I was just saying what happened, but it ended up all over the papers!
"So I'm trying to be more cautious. It seems no matter what you say and how politically correct and carefully you say it, you offend someone. Or at least I always do."

what do you think?
That's what I always said, myself! I've been internetting for years, now and what I find is, whatever you say, someone is always offended by it. You can say, "Hello, internetters, how are you?" Then someone is certain to go, "Oh yeah, and what makes you think you know everything?"
I said something along the lines of, "Oh yeah, Adrian - and what makes you think you know everything?" and Borringe, to protect you from my irony, deleted me! Ha ha ha. I think I added "s*ut u*p" to that too - but I was only kidding! I was gutted - I had been quite pleased with my little jape...
