Somehow, Shane Warne and Elizabeth Hurley’s silence on Twitter constituted rumors of a breakup. Even more unfortunately: it appears it may have been true, and the pair broke their social media silence to give their fans an update on where their relationship is at. Unfortunately, people care.

"Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now," said Liz, while the former Cricket player and legend of the sport, Shane, said: "Some of the reports re EH & me r absolute rubbish. Yes we're sorting through some (private) issues. But we're not throwing the towel in yet."

Of course, this doesn’t clear anything up. Warne celebrated his 44th birthday last week, and thanked friends and family on Twitter but didn’t mention Hurley. Why he’s thanking people for turning 44 we don’t know. Then came this tweet: “It’s not what happens in your life, it’s how you react to what life throws at u, in both the good & bad times.”

For her part, Hurley seemed to stoke the fire when she posted: “The more I know of man, the more I love my dog. Goodnight from me and Raja.” What in heavens could that mean?

The pair seem to have lived their romantic lives on Twitter. In 2011, it was reported that they had engaged – on the micro-blogging site of course – which turned out to be true. Perhaps if they’d focussed their efforts to life in a more tangible realm (the one we live in: earth) things may have gone differently.
