They love to post pictures of their children and keep followers up to date with their schedule, but now celebrities have taken to doing something more revealing on Twitter.
'Celebrity body surfing' is the latest craze to sweep the internet and involves various famous faces sharing photos of their bare legs and torsos.
It is debatable whether or not the photos are being taken to show off their bodies, or simply if it is just another way for the celebrities to keep their fans updated and interested but either way it's a trend that's catching on.

Not so different: Heidi Klum and Sam Faiers (R) tweeted very similar photos of themselves sunbathing
Supermodel Heidi Klum was the latest celebrity to get in on the act and tweeted a photo of herself sunbathing on a beach yesterday.
Accompanied with the caption 'Gorgeous day,' Heidi obviously thought it would be more appealing to take a photo of her enviable body rather than her surroundings.
Showing off her flat stomach in a leopard-print two-piece, the blonde star also made sure her legs were in the shot too.
But if she thinks her photo is the sexiest tweet of all then she's got some serious competition.

The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers tweeted a very similar image while on holiday in Las Vegas last month.
Feeling the need to mention that she was 'getting nice and brown,' the reality TV star showed off her trim figure in multi-coloured bottoms and a jewelled bandeau top.
But not all the stars are as body confident as when Kelly Osbourne treated fans to a photo of herself sunbathing, she seemed to have cropped some of her body out.

Rather than showing off her chest, the 27-year-old decided to give a glimpse of her flat stomach, her frilly bikini briefs and her thighs.
Another two celebrities who opted against revealing their stomachs altogether are Rihanna and model Miranda Kerr.
The Barbados-born singer is known for her controversial looks, and decided to treat her followers to a rather raunchy image of her legs in black tights that featured a print of red suspenders.

Miranda, on the other hand, posted her leggy picture back in October last year and used the perfect excuse of showing off a new pair of shoes.
However, some celebrities feel that showing a bit of leg just isn't enough and America's Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry and glamour model Coco Austin went all the way with their body surfing pictures.
