The McLaren driver was at the centre of another furore on the social media site when he criticised team-mate Jenson Button after believing his compatriot had unfollowed him.
But the 27-year-old was left red-faced when he realised Button did not follow his account in the first place, and quickly posted an apology.
"Perhaps Twitter and I don't go together too well. I don't know what I am going to do," he said.
"I like it because I like to be able to share the great experiences I have with the fans, but it is a fine line. I obviously wasn't in the right frame of mind, but that's it."
