Adele is the mononym of Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, a British singer/songwriter. She rose to fame after the release of the song “Rolling in the Deep” from her second studio album 21.
Adele registered a Myspace account to host MP3s of her recordings on December 31st, 2004. Her official website, Adele.tv, was registered on September 13th, 2007. She started a YouTube account on April 4th, 2008, where she receives over 12,500 views a day. The first post on her official Facebook page was made on January 25th, 2011.

The Twitter account, @OfficialAdele, was created on August 30th, 2010. As of February 2012, nearly 4 million users follow the account though she only has 140 tweets. The initial tweets from the account were posted by an assistant beginning on September 14th, 2010. For nearly a year, Adele had no interaction with the account until December 4th, 2011 when she announced she would take the account over if 10,000 people followed @drop4drop, an English non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean water to countries without it. The next day, the follower goal was hit and she tweeted a photo of herself posing with a photo of Beyonce. Her Twitter takeover was covered on E!
