Simon vs Piers Twitter battle

He's only been on Twitter for a matter of hours but Simon Cowell's already picking a few fights.

First up were his fellow X-Factor judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger. Cowell tweeted "I love being on Twitter. Thank you for allowing me to beat the other three judges in the popularity poll. Paula looked like she’d sucked on a lemon.”?

Then it was onto Piers Morgan who he worked with on Britain's Got Talent. 

Morgan went first with "Save your breath Simon. Nobody’s watching X Factor. My show’s about to start," Cowell retorted “Look up the word ‘deluded’ in your dictionary.”??

But Piers still wanted more, "Still 1.3million followers behind me. As you would tell a contestant, ‘There’s a LOT of work to do, luv’."

Bookies make Cowell odds on to overtake Piers Morgan by the end of the year.
