"I know a lot of people who get themselves in trouble with things they write on Twitter and that would be me," the former 'American Idol' champ once admitted. "If I get upset about something and I'm like, 'I'm gonna blog about this,' it will take me awhile to get to my computer and log on and by the time I get on there, the steam is gone. Twitter and Facebook and those things, if you're mad or you're crazy at the moment, or I've seen people intoxicated twittering, it's too immediate. There's no time to cool off and think about what you're going to say before you say it. I'd get in trouble."
The Oklahoma native added that she felt no need to share every detail of her life with her fans. "I am technologically -- I don't want to say challenged, because I can do all the basics -- but I'm not into it," continued the songbird. "And some people are into it and they have fun with it and that's awesome. I'm glad people can find some happy by telling people what they had for lunch."
Apparently, fans are the ones who inspired the blond beauty to change her mind. "Excited to have another way to connect with my fans from my team and me," she tweeted after signing up earlier today (Feb. 24). "Can't wait to hear from you!"
Not a day after joining the site, Carrie already has more than 36,000 followers. If you haven't started following her yet, you can find her at twitter.com/carrieunderwood.
This week, in addition to joining Twitter, the blond beauty also released 'Good Girl,' the first single from her upcoming album.
"It's upbeat, it's fun, you stomp your feet, and you can dance to it," she explains of the new tune. "It's got this really rockin' verse, and this really rockin' country chorus. It's just a really cool song."
Carrie's new album will hit shelves on May 1.
