Lady Gaga has shut down her hugely influential Twitter profile ahead of the release of her third studio album.
The singer also cleared all the imagery from her account, which is the most followed on the social networking site.
However, rumour has it the shut-down could be a temporary one in order to pave the way for a big announcement.
Her bio now reads: “This interface has been shutdown temporarily. Please check back for updates”.
Gaga has been working on ARTPOP over the past year. She first teased an announcement of the record in September last year.
But she was forced to push back many of her arrangements – including halting the remainder of her Born This Way Ball world tour – in order to undergo emergency hip surgery.
