Florence and the Machine star Florence Welch refuses to catalogue her life on Twitter - because she's too busy 'enjoying the moment' to share it with her fans.

"Dog Days Are Over" singer, Florence Welch has an account on the microblogging website but her showbiz life is so hectic, she only manages to post on it sporadically.

And she's adamant she won't fall into the trap of missing out on "something amazing" because she's more concerned with documenting it online.

Florence Welch tells Britain's You magazine, "I can only manage about one (Tweet) a month. It's not that I don't want to, it's just that when I am in a situation where I am doing something amazing it's a shame - and rather rude - to bring out my phone and start Tweeting."

"I think a lot of people miss out on enjoying the moment because they are so busy trying to communicate it to the world. And I want to keep some moments to myself."
