Los Angeles: TV mogul Oprah Winfrey gave her fans a rare look into her daily life during her first live tweet event, which saw her cooking up a meal, exercising and lounging with partner Stedman Graham.

The 57-year-old is leaving no stone unturned to promote her soon-to-be launched network OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) and the talk show titan took to Twittersphere to promote the Sunday`s new lineup on her network.

During her tweet session, Winfrey watched an episode of `Behind The Scenes`, which is her own reality show following everything that goes on to bring one of her shows on air.

However, most of her 5.5 million followers were not convinced it was actually the Big O herself tweeting them from her account.

The billionaire then decided to post a video of herself at her Montecito estate in California.

"Hey guys, thanks for helping us be the number one trending topic on Twitter and for being a part of our Tweetathon, I am in Cali with Stedman," she said in the video.

Winfrey also posted a video of her cooking and gave the viewers her recipe for risotto with crab meat dish.

She also posted candid videos of herself, including her working out in her home gym and her with Stedman sitting out on the patio of her home surrounded by her dogs.
