One of the coolest things about Twitter is that celebrity community has really taken a shine to it. Odds are your favorite actor or director has a Twitter account and will share some of the minutia of his or her daily life in easily-digested, bite-size chunks. Some celebs are more active than others, particularly Ashton Kutcher -- the reigning king of famous Tweeters. Of course, you should also check out John Cusack's feed -- which vacillates between political commentary, humorous asides, and bat-sh!t crazy. A recent example? "I CAN ONLY AWNSER WHAT WOULD SHOCKOZULU DO ... TO DIRECT QUESTIONS."
In a weird (and terrifying) way, Twitter is the CNN for a digital age. I can't begin to count how many entertainment news stories have broken through Tweets in the past year, but it's a lot. Internet super-site IMDb knows this -- and understands that Twitter is a good way for famous folks to keep in touch with their fanbase -- so now they've amended the site to include celebrity Twitter account links and updates. Thanks to this, you don't even need a Twitter account to read about your favorite celeb's latest exploits, you can find it right on their IMDb page (below "NewsDesk"), complete with a link back to their feed. So if you're paranoid about privacy and social media, but completely voyeuristic -- this service will come in handy for you. It's also a nice way to track down lesser-known celebs. Plus, it adds a nice, personal touch to the person's IMDb page too.
Unfortunately, not every celebrity has had their verified account linked yet. We're hoping Edgar Wright will get on board and spread his wit and wisdom to an even wider audience. He's a prime example of someone who should be taking advantage of this new service.
See you all on the Twittah!
