What is the sound of celebrities tweeting? Well, it might be Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails notifying Dave Navarro, a musical collaborator who now plays for Jane’s Addiction, that he’s “hanging on the bus.” Or maybe it’s Ashton Kutcher and John Mayer comparing notes on being 31 years old (from John to Ashton: “Let’s open a hip new restaurant together. ‘31 club.’ Where it’s always standing room only. It will fail but we will have had fun.”).

Most celebrities let anybody follow them on Twitter, but are pickier about whom they follow themselves. Mr. Kutcher, for instance, in addition to following his wife (Demi Moore) and a stepdaughter (Rumer Willis), follows a mix of boldface names from different walks of life, including Evan Williams (a Twitter founder), Soleil Moon Frye (remember “Punky Brewster”?), Maria Shriver and Ellen DeGeneres. (The latter two are not shown on the already-too-crowded chart below.)

It seems that — just like the rest of us — celebrities enjoy hearing about other celebrities, and Twitter lets them participate in a giant cross-disciplinary mash-up of a conversation.

Golly gee. Look for your favorites.

    I mean really, who gives a shit what everyone else is doing?

    What an incredible waste of time twittering away. The only people who would care are the stalkers.

    They could be blogging which is where all the cool and hip people are.

    (If you are cool and hip you never say cool and hip….)

    NPR follows McLovin?

  3. I’ve never even heard of half these people. I guess it doesn’t take much to be a “celebrity” these days…

    “I mean really, who gives a shit what everyone else is doing?”

    Celebrity is American Royalty. Millions of people “give a shit” what they’re doing. The real question is why?

    Well, John apparently gives a shit, a damn and a hoot:

    Has anybody figured out how to monetize twitter? Doesn’t everyone realize that when you are twittering, you aren’t working (or driving, or walking, etc)?

    This fad is nothing more than a massive time-waster. Here we are worried about our lack of productivity, and we’re pouring money and hours into this shit.

    where the heck is MY icon?

  9. Dallas says:

    I agree with the above responses but if I can get close to Ashton Kutcher, count me in.

    He’s HAWT.

    I don’t see Leo Laporte. Well, it means this ‘issue’ will be another topic on TWiT this weekend.

    JCD, make sure you are on TWiT this sunday to make sure that this story is skipped.
