The Tweet Spot

The Best Celebrity Tweets of 2011

When future generations look back on 2011, they’re going to consult celebrities’ Twitter archives to see what we were all about. After you recover from that horrifying thought, take a look at who might be worth following into 2012.

Tweeter: Alec Baldwin
Tweet: “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt”
Follow: Yes. With the caveat that Mr. Donaghy has since deactivated his Twitter. But the smart money is on him returning sooner rather than later.

Tweeter: Charlie Sheen
Tweet: “Winning..!Choose Your Vice...#winning #chooseyourvice”—his first tweet.
Follow: No. What started as an amusing train wreck has basically become thinly veiled self-promotion for one-man shows in Detroit.

Tweeter: Steve Martin
Tweet: “Waiting by phone for Sexiest Man Alive announcement.”
Follow: Yes. The wild and crazy guy doesn’t even need all 140 characters to send out premium sarcasm on a daily basis.

Tweeter: Anthony Weiner
Tweet: [Censored.]
Follow: Sadly, no. The good representative has since resigned from both Congress and the Twittersphere... for now.

Tweeter: Garry Shandling
Tweet: “i always think about my 110,000 followers even if none of us are tweeting. Almost had a car accident thinking about #56,878. You’re hot.”
Follow: Sure. He’s like the wisecracking, overtly pervy uncle who secretly cracks you up at family dinners.

Tweeter: Holly Madison
Tweet: “My heart is not the sharpest tool in the shed. #MajorInconvenience”
Follow: Nah. Although she managed to get this metaphor right(-ish), not many of her random shout-outs and musings are worth your time. And if you need photos, well, they’re out there.

Tweeter: Jerry Seinfeld
Tweet: “All your facial features are on the lower bottom half of your head. Disturbing..”
Follow: Yes—if you’re still holding out hope for a Seinfeld reunion. Otherwise... yadda yadda yadda, you’ll find something else.

Tweeter: Metta World Peace (aka Ron Artest)
Tweet: “Did yal know me and the guy who hit me with the beer in Detroit are friends now? We speak all the time”
Follow: Yes. He changed his name to Metta World Peace and tweets about his psychiatrist. This is what Twitter is for.

Tweeter: Gwyneth Paltrow
Tweet: “Who do I have to bang to get an advance copy of the new @coldplay album? I mean, really.”
Follow: Despite pithy TMI gems like this one, we’re going to say no. Just... no.
