(WENN) - Megan Fox has joined Twitter, just hours after false rumours of her death spread on the social networking site.

The actress became the latest celebrity to be killed off in a sick online hoax on Thursday when "RIP Megan Fox" became a trending topic on Twitter.

But hours later, Fox proved she's still alive and kicking - by signing up for a Twitter account and sending out her very first tweet.

The inaugural message read:

She's alive! Go follow her!
