Adele confirmed that, yes, her lush habits made her people paranoid about what she might say on Twitter and thus her tweeting privileges were revoked. Like many other famous people, she now dictates her tweets.

Adele seems OK with it. She told BBC:

So my management decided that you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed off by someone. But they’re all my tweets. No one writes my tweets. They just post them for me.
