Gary Barlow has confirmed that he has joined Twitter.

The Take That star announced his official account details on The Xtra Factor last night, warning fans that any other social-networking account was fake.

"Let me tell you something, I have never ever been on Twitter," Barlow said. "So if anyone's been following me, it's not me."

Tulisa Contostavlos added: "There is a massive fake account of you, that has thousands of followers, that constantly tweet me!"

Posting his first tweet live on air, he wrote: "Hello everybody. This is my first tweet!"

In subsequent updates, Barlow said that he was "overwhelmed", adding: "Wow!!! Lots of you!! Welcome!"

The singer's follower count rose dramatically, with his tally crossing 265,000 this morning.
