Celebrity Tweet-Up April 2011
– by Rachel Langer
By now, I’m sure we are all aware that Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk), Demi Moore (@mrskutcher) and Oprah (@Whotheheckcares… *ahem* I mean @oprah) have more than a corner on the celebrity tweet market. Since those pioneers began paving the way, many other celebs have begun to vie for their piece of the Twitter pie. Though some tout charities, or promote projects, others are content to create PR nightmares for their reps and managers to clean up.
This column is dedicated to all the crazy that our fave celebs unleash willingly on their devoted followers, and to the occasional interpretation of what they may truly be trying to say. Hope you enjoy.

My Facebook account has been restored. My best, Bill
[In other words – FOLLOW MEEEEEE. Side note: Shatner signs every tweet, “My best, Bill” or sometimes “MBB”. I guess 140 characters is a bitch, when you’re famous]
