The 24-year-old Indiana dad and reality star quickly found himself under attack for making an account for his little girl.

"You guys, it should be obvious that Leah has no contact with Twitter," he wrote. "This is just a fun concept that will in no way affect Leah herself."

"You actually think she'll read tweets?" he went on. "No! It's a fun thing for us to post pics and tweets. It's not actually her."

In case anyone was concerned, Shirley clarified that he would shield Leah from any negative comments. "I protect my daughter," he said. "This is for her sayings, things she's doing, etc. It's all me tweeting!"

Shirley's on-off girlfriend Portwood, 21, attempted suicide last month. Shirley was supportive of Leah's mom and kept fans posted on her condition. On June 26, however, Shirley told his Twitter followers: "I'm single."
