Celebrities on Twitter – they’re just like us! Right?
Okay, so if you don't know about Twitter, it's basically a way to talk to yourself (and whoever wants to follow you) in 140 characters or less. I've been on Twitter (this is me) since it began and I have a love/hate relationship with it. Mostly, I think it's kind of a giant waste of time, but it really depends on how you use it.
ANYWAY, moving on, good sweet baby Jebus. There are real live celebrities on Twitter, sharing the mundane of their lives with us because they want to connect to the little people. Isn't that great? I knew you would like that. Here are a few of the celebs that like to tweet:
Brent Spiner , yep, Data. I always had a bit of a weird little robot crush on him, which is something I'm not proud of but there it is.
Kevin Pollak, who I just saw the other day in “A Few Good Men”.
Justine Bateman looking like she just got done with a strenuous regimen of being dragged face first through a gully full of gravel. Also, she looks like she might hurt me if provoked.
Rainn Wilson, who we all know and love as Dwight Schrute on “The Office”.
Fred Durst, who used to be edgy and wants us all to know that hey! Wearing a beard means HE STILL IS. So suck it.
William Shatner. If you don't know who William Shatner is, you must be Amish.
Elijah Wood. Okay, so I wonder if Elijah ever walked up to director Peter Jackson while filming “Lord of the Rings” and said: “Hey, you know those giant eagles that picked us off of Mount Doom after we went through hell to get the ring there and throw it in the fire? Now, I'm just throwing this out there, but what if those eagles, oh, I don't know, JUST FLEW US FROM THE SHIRE RIGHT TO MOUNT DOOM, thereby bypassing all the general unpleasantness that Frodo and Sam have to put up with. It's crazy, but it just might work.” I bet he did.
Britney Spears, who mostly talks about her videos, concerts, kids, Cheetos, and Nietzsche.
Tina Fey , who was a very constant Twitter-er until recently. Tina? Why hast thou forsaken me?
Ryan Seacrest. Most of us know Ryan as the man who basically is on every channel. I don't think he sleeps. I think he has some kind of hyperbaric chamber that gives him energy boosts. Plus, he's a robot of some type.
Soleil Moon Frye. Did you know that she used to have some kind of disease that made her boobs grow freakishly large? It's true. Google it.
Demi Moore, who I've seen naked a LOT. Huh.
Ashton Kutcher, who obviously has some kind of redeeming qualities past the Punk'd personality that made Demi want to marry him. At least, I hope so.
Jimmy Fallon, who somehow is taking over from Conan O'Brien. I don't see that ending well.
MC Hammer. He's just too legit to quit.
Good Lord, that was a lot, right? I find it's kind of interesting to follow these folks, Demi and Ashton especially have some interesting stuff to say, and it's fun to get a different perspective than you get in the tabloid magazines. If there's another celebrity on Twitter that I missed, post it in the comments!
