Sinead O'Connor has revealed she is still in touch with some of the friends she made on Twitter, despite quitting the site.

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer joined Twitter earlier this year and said she had great fun chatting to people, but quit recently because of all the abuse she was getting.

Sinead: "I really enjoyed it, but unfortunately there's too many freaks on Twitter, including myself, so I just got fed up of being abused really.

She added: "But I did have the time of my life, I did really enjoy myself. I made some serious friends, I'm still mates with some of the loopers I got on with on Twitter."

The 44-year-old singer, who advertised for a new man on the social networking site, also revealed she had now found a man to fit the bill.

Sinead said: "I did. I finally did. Or he found me."

The Irish star is set to play the final Mencap's Little Noise Sessions at St John-at-Hackney church in London on Sunday November 27, and is looking forward to singing in a church.

Sinead recently performed in an Icelandic church in Reykjavik as part of the 2011 Iceland Airwaves festival.

She said: "That was first time I've ever been allowed to play in a church. I was asked to play a gig in the parish church to raise money for the parish trip to Lourdes and I said I'd love to, but the parish priest wouldn't let me in there. They wouldn't have me because I'm a trouble maker for the church. So it was very nice to finally get to sing in church in Iceland and it'll be lovely to do this too."
