Rihanna

I Didn't Even Realize

I Tweeted #FreePalestine

3:45 PM PT --
Rihanna has now tweeted a message praying for peace ... and an end to the conflict in the Middle East.

Rihanna
 deleted her #FreePalestine tweet 8 minutes after she posted it because she says it was never meant to be sent out in the first place ... a source close to the singer tells TMZ.

One source connected to the situation tells TMZ, "She deleted it because it was never meant to be tweeted," adding, "She didn't even realize it was a tweet until she started hearing from her fans."

The source says Rihanna was reading about the Middle East conflict online when she clicked a link.  The next thing she knew ... her fans were asking her why she was pro-Palestine.

The explanation is obviously curious.  In order to tweet, someone would either have to type the message or cut and paste it, and then click the "Tweet" button.

Our source says Rihanna is not pro-Palestine or pro-Israel ... "she is pro-peace," saying, "She doesn't want innocent people dying."

So we gotta ask ...

Actually contrary to what was said in this article, there are several different ways of tweeting stuff. There are websites out there that require people to login using their twitter credentials to do stuff and because of that sometimes the website automatically uses your twitter credentials to send out tweets, as though they come from you.
