First, If you don't know what twitter is, check out www.twitter.com as it says on their home page "Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co-workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?"
Since most of my friends and family are not tech savvy people, I help them turn on the computer, and my co-workers already make me read what their twitting I decided what to see fun I can have with this.
As I desperately try to understand why anyone would want to read my twit (yes that's what people call it) on Twitter I decided to see if there was any Famous Twitters out there that might be interesting to read and maybe get me a little more acclimated to twitting.
When I say famous I mean common everyday famous. The type of famous where when you were a kid and say "I want to be famous" this is the type of fame you're talking about.
I tried to stay away from people who are Tech Famous or SEO Famous because there are hundreds of those type of people on Twitter and this post would of taken me all day. Plus, most people outside of that persons niche in the online world would never have heard of them.
So taking that into consideration here's a short list I was able to dig up where most people are going to know who I'm talking about or at least can understand the reference.
The first thing I noticed as I searched around is that it seems like any major celebrities have so far shied away from twitting. It's a real shame because I would love to know what Angelina Jolie is thinking as she brushes her teeth.
I was able to find some nice "fake" twitters of the celebrity world such as:
Chuck Norris (Which reminds me of a fun Google trick - Type in Find Chuck Norris then click I'm Feeling Lucky for your search; Well I find it funny)
I did find some pretty famous Celebes:
Last Updated 4/7/2009
- David Hewlett (Stargate Atlantis)
- Soleil Moon Frye (Punky Brewster)
- Wil Wheaton (Stand By Me)
- Rumer Willis (Bruce Willis' daughter)
- Mark Cuban (Dallas Mavericks Owner)
- Charlie Villanueva (NBA)
- Al Gore (Former Vice President)
It seems as if most of your mid to major celebrities are staying on Facebook
at this point. Maybe they don't want us to know when they eat and sleep, just yet.
Hey if you get a chance follow me on Twitter I'll try not to tell you when I'm brushing my teeth, then again I might.
