THE 18 YEAR OLD daughter of computer billionaire Michael Dell is no longer posting social media updates about her family, apparently because her dad has had enough of it.

According to a report at Bloomberg Businessweek, Alexa Dell had been keeping up a pretty good running commentary on the comings and goings of the family despite the old man spending millions of dollars on personal security.

While Dell is spending $2.7m on his family's security, the kids have not shown the same respect for it and have been posting photos, GPS locations and details of upcoming engagements.

Bloomberg reports that the account has been closed down, adding that the curtain came down around the time that Alexa posted the day, time and location of an upcoming family dinner date and posted a photo of her brother to a obscenely decadent Tumblr site called the Rich Kids of Instagram.

It seems likely that Michael Dell got wind of the posting, which identified where the photo was taken thanks to the GPS information that was uploaded along with it, and demanded that his daughter shut down the account. µ
