Bella's latest tweets come more than a week after the Shake It Up! alumna mutually broke up with Gregg Sulkin after one year of dating.

"After much thought and soul-searching, we have made the difficult decision to end our relationship," the actors told E! News in a joint statement. "We will always love each other and have a deep respect for one another, as we have each grown to be better people because of our time together."

And when one fan expressed sadness that the relationship didn't last, Bella responded, "Things just didn't end up working the way we had hoped. But I'll always love the bub."

As to why Bella decided to tweet about her sexuality, some fans are speculating that it's because she recently shared a photo of herself kissing a girl. Bella Pendergast also referred to the actress as her "girlfriend" in photos posted on Twitter.

Regardless of who she is and isn't dating, fans are applauding the Hollywood star for her openness on social media. And it may just be continuing in the future. When one fan advised her to "Keep breakin' them social conventions," she replied, "Will do baby."
