London: Rumer Willis is thankful for the micro-blogging website twitter and says it gives celebrities such as herself an "outlet" in which they can respond to negative comments.

The 22-year-old who is the daughter of Hollywood ex couple Bruce Willis and Demi Moore is thankful for "outlets" like the micro-blogging website because it gives celebrities like her the chance to defend themselves when they get talked about, reports contactmusic.com.

"Everyone has an opinion, and if they say something negative, you can`t defend yourself because any response in itself is enough to validate the claim. But that`s the great thing about outlets like twitter because, more and more, we`re getting control of our image. We can be in direct contact with the world and people can at least choose between second-hand and the direct information," she said.
