Can she keep syllables to less than 140 characters?

Pop star Christina Aguilera, famous for her deep lunged melisma singing style, has joined Twitter. Her account, @TheRealXtina, has been verified, and Perez Hilton helped draw attention to the nascent profile with his own tweet, saying, "As promised, it appears #ChristinaAguilera has joined Twitter! @TheRealXtina is a new and verified account! Stay tuned!"

Joining Twitter is a good step for a star who is seeking to fix her image, and promote a big new project. Aguilera, who just divorced husband Jordan Bratman, famously goofed up the National Anthem at the Super Bowl and more recently, was arrested for public intoxication with new boyfriend, Matthew Rutler.

Looking beyond those problems, Aguilera will be a judge on the upcoming NBC singing competition, "The Voice," joining Carson Daly, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine on the star studded new show.
