Miley Cyrus takes Twitter u-turn

Miley Cyrus has set up a new Twitter account just days after she said she doesn't social network.

The star's Twitter page has been dormant ever since she shut it down in 2009, to keep her life private.

Just last week she told the Sydney Daily Telegraph: 'I do not tweet, I do not social network, I try to stay out of it.

'I complain enough about people knowing too much about my private life, so to go out there and exploit myself would be silly and hypocritical.'

But she's now created a new page, primarily to support fallen actor Charlie Sheen.

'I'm not gonna lie. I came back to twitter for 2 reasons. My fans and to follow @charliesheen #winning,' she wrote.

Miley also said she's using the micro-blogging site to keep fans posted about her forthcoming world tour.
