Abstract: We show that a twistor space of a self-dual metric on $ 4{\mathbf{CP}}^2$ with $ U(1)$-isometry is not Moishezon iff there is a $ \mathbf{C}^*$-orbit biholomorphic to a smooth elliptic curve, where the $ \mathbf C^*$-action is the complexification of the $ U(1)$-action on the twistor space. It follows that the $ U(1)$-isometry has a two-sphere whose isotropy group is $ \mathbf Z_2$. We also prove the existence of such twistor spaces in a strong form to show that a problem of Campana and Kreußler is affirmative even though a twistor space is required to have a non-trivial automorphism group.
