Frankie Poullain leaves Twitter and Ed joins...Ok this headline felt a bit weird to write as leaving twitter may not seem like a big deal, but as fans might be trying to find him, we felt it was needed.
Frankie has left twitter after being on the social networking site for around a week, and jokingly put out a 'statement' about having to leave twitter on his personal Facebook account, stating 'I'm still on Facebook' whilst giving the link to Ed's twitter account instead.
Follow Ed on Twitter - @EdGrahamDrums, for now at least.

The Darkness win 'Showman' award at Classic Rock Magazine AwardsThe Darkness played and received an award for 'Showman' (we aren't sure if they actually specified just Justin from the website...) at The Classic Rock Awards tonight, which took place at The Roundhouse, London UK.
Click read more below to see what happened at tonight's awards, or visit www.classicrockmagazine.com.
"Gorham admits: "When I went to see them in Wembley I didn’t know what to expect. They tore a new one - big time."
Justin Hawkins: "It's been a long time since we won an award, and this is the most special of all of them. Right guys? I want to thank my band - and I want to say ‘thank fuck we don’t have to do this every day.’ It’s the most nerve-racking thing about being in a band." "
Metro: Out of The Darkness: Justin Hawkins and the boys are back in town going back to basicsWas it all too much too soon?
Frankie Poullain (bass): ‘I actually felt it was all too fast. The record company said to themselves they want to squeeze as much as they can out of you and they keep pushing you in a commercial direction. After a while you can easily lose your identity. Not that you do lose your identity but because you have been pushed into other scenarios.’
Hawkins: ‘I remember one conversation with the boss of the record label. We’d had Get Your Hands Off My Woman, Growing On Me and I Believe In A Thing Called Love, and I was wearing catsuits and was all dressed up. Then just as we were hitting mega-popularity - I think partly because of the way we looked - we were being told to do a video in just jeans and T-shirts. Which I think is missing the point really because we were doing something that was so different and we should have been encouraged to take the time to develop that rather than pulling it back. We should have been expanding it, for better or worse, and gambling. ’Cos in the end we didn’t gamble and we lost.’
Poullain: ‘That’s partly why we are doing what we are doing now. We are very much in touch with ourselves and we are doing more what we want to do.’
