Love quits Twitter after nude photo accident
Rocker Courtney Love has quit Twitter after accidentally publishing a nearly-nude photo of herself on the website.
The Hole front woman logged on to the social networking site last week and shocked thousands of followers by posting a link to a topless picture of herself writhing in a chair.

The embarrassed star reached out to her fans on Tuesday, admitting the steamy image was meant to be private -- and the incident has prompted her to close down her profile.
Posting her final tweet from @CourtneyLoveUK, she wrote, "I'm off twitter, that photo was meant for a boy friend."
Love did not mention the name of the beau the racy snap was intended for.

However, fans are hoping Love's Twitter break won't last too long; she vowed to quit the site on two separate occasions in October 2009, only to return shortly afterward.
