Louis Walsh is joining twitter and will launch his account when the live shows of 'The X Factor' start later this year

Louis Walsh is joining twitter.

The 'X Factor' judge has never been on the micro blogging site before - although there are many fake accounts in his name - but promised he will get his own profile once the live shows of the ITV1 talent show start later this year.

However, Louis - who is returning for a ninth series of 'The X Factor' - doesn't know what his username should be so he wants some ideas.

In a video interview on Facebook, Louis: "By the way, I'm not on twitter, I never have been but I'm gonna do it for the live shows. I'm gonna start my own account. We're gonna launch on ITV2, but I need a name - give me a name!"

While Louis isn't on twitter, his fellow judges Gary Barlow and Tulisa Contostavlos are and regularly tweet especially during the live shows stage as they want as much support as possible for their acts.

The show's boss, Simon Cowell, recently joined the social networking site while former judges Sharon Osbourne, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue all have accounts.
