The unwritten rules of Twitter say that if you have a picture of you and your significant other as an avatar, and you switch it back to a picture of yourself, then your relationship must be in trouble.

"Just because we changed our Twitter profile picture doesn't mean that we're not together," the golfer said.
“I’d love to know who this source is,” said McIlroy to The Telegraph, in reference to the “source close to him” who had been named in the original story.(Photo by Stan Honda/AFP/Getty Images)
