The message says: "Friends and fans, Thank You."

It was sent on Thursday from Cosby's Twitter account.

The 78-year-old comedian was charged this week with drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004 inside his home near Philadelphia.

It is the first criminal case brought against Cosby out of the torrent of allegations that destroyed his good-guy image as America's Dad.

His lawyer has said the charge is unjustified and predicted his client will be exonerated.

Cosby is free on 1 million US dollar (£679,000) bail pending trial.
