S**t My Readers Say & Twitter

Last night I finally gave in and joined the ranks of Twitter. The reasons for doing so are numerous but I have found that Facebook is kind of limiting because only 5,000 people can be your friend so I would really like to be able to reach out to more of you, the readers who make all things possible. I have also decided that having a Twitter account will make it easier to follow what celebrities are doing and to make fun of them more quickly. Finally, I wanted to be able to share a lot of what you say with the rest of the world.


So, the first order of business is to really drag this S**t people say trend around the block a few more times until it is dead. What I will do everyday is find a comment or two from the site which are truly memorable and post it to my Twitter and let an even wider audience see what brilliant people you are.

Finally, although I went from 0 to 177 followers very quickly last night, I really want to ratchet it up so, I have decided that once I reach 10,000 followers I will reveal one o my "long blind items." I have a nice and juicy one that will be perfect.

There is a link to my Twitter over on the upper right or you can click here.

FB Fan pages can have more than 5,000, can't they?

Miranda said...

I, for one, welcome you to the awesomeness that is Twitter! Once you start making Twitter lists, it makes navigating tweets a lot easier. Can we pimp out our own Twitter accounts here? :)

Rose said...

I don't get the appeal of twitter but I like your initiative Enty.

bluebird said...

I don't have facebook but I read twitter so, awesome.

biteme said...

I just added you on Twitter.

Maja. With a J. said...

FOLLOW THAT LAWYER!!!


I am on Twitter. I rarely remember that I am though so don't expect any hilarity from me (I assume you would *L*). I did go on today, and that is because of YOU, Mr. Enty.

EmEyeKay said...

I'll bookmark it, Enty! Not on twitter, but I'll check up.

Syko said...

Already following you, Enty! As soon as your first tweet showed up on Facebook last night, I hauled myself over to Twitter and started stalking you.

RocketQueen said...

Yay! Just followed you, Enty. I just tweeted this morning for the first time in a long time about how I dreamt last night I made out with Brad Pitt in a limo while Clooney and Cooper watched. Brad Pitt was all tongue. It was kind of gross but it was fucking BRAD PITT so I kept going.

Emi said...

I'm raising my hand:) Pick me, pick my comment to link it to tweeter!!! You know why:D Oh, and I want more details about the romance between you know who! Pretty please, on my knees begging:)

selenakyle said...

Oooh, yeah--I don't subscribe to any social media but this would almost make me want to join Twitter just to help us get that "long blind" REVEAL quicker!!!

Y'all CDAN commenters who are also Twitterers...get on it!

selenakyle said...

Eww, RQ--I hate that "all tongue" action, too!

Seachica said...

I followed you last night. Twitter is *awesome*. I used to think it was just a time waster, but these last two days, during Seattle's snowpocalypse, it has been my primary source of news for how my neighborhood is doing/what stores are open/etc. I'm now a full twitter convert.

rll said...

What this Ralph Fiennes thing?

RocketQueen said...

omg selenakyle, he was CHOKING ME! But still. Brad Pitt. :)

ChasingHeaven said...

I love that part of the reason why Enty joined twitter was to make fun of celebrities faster. A man after my own heart! lol

I was one of those 177 from last night Enty, very excited to hear more from you!

Baka Neko said...

Won't follow because I don't have twitter but I'll read it when I check to see if David lynch wrote anything new.

ChasingHeaven said...

@Miranda, I'm @RobinDarling What's yours?

GSDlover said...

I just started following you on twitter.

Bnl1016 said...

I often forget I have a twitter too. I have a hard time containing myself to 140 characters and I don't want to be *that guy* that has to tweet 5 times to get my entire thought out. No one likes that guy.

Miranda said...

@ChasingHeaven you can find me here: @charenton_. I tweet WAY too much!

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I'm on twitter and fb and I use twitter several times a day, fb a few times a week. Sooo glad you finally started tweeting, ENT!

BigMama said...

RQ- that made me laugh very hard, once again my co-workers think I am a nut

I had a huge crush on a guy in highschool, totally cool with the long hair and leather coat (I know, I know) anyway, one glorious evening he kissed me. It was like making out with a plunger. I stepped back, looked at him and said "sorry, my mistake" and never crushed on him again. First guy dissapointment to my 15 year old self. Wouldn't be the last either.

Comma Chaser said...

On the twittertrain.

Sadie said...

I don't twitter. I'm hoping some kind reader will share with us whats going on there.

A Facebook personal page is limited to 5000 friends. However Enty, you can convert your personal facebook page into a fan page and then you can have several billion followers. Here's a link that shows you how to do it: http://www.facebook.com/notes/social-circle-media/how-to-convert-facebook-personal-profile-to-a-fanbusiness-page/10150146958617198

foofoogirl said...

I am following even though I don't use my twitter much, but gotta get the juicy BI out!
Hey Seachicka, I am in Ever-Rott and have been snowed in for 6 days! Lots of internet for me!

Tempestuous Grape said...

I don't do The Twitter or The Facebook, just The Flickr.

ItsAJ said...

Twitter has removed the RSS Feed link from their site but if you still want to read Enty's tweets on your RSS reader you can use this url to add it:

Welcome to twitter, Enty!

EmEyeKay said...

@Sadie, you don't have to join Twitter to read tweets, I just bookmark the ones I read and look them up now and then.

Himmmm said...

Dear "enty":
Yes, you win the bet.
Yes, you're the sexiest man alive.
Yes, I admit I have a small penis and the only way to make it larger would be to become a lawyer.
Yes, I will FINALLY send a frickin tweet from my account now...but you never told me it had to be within a time frame? Does 2014 sound like a good time?
:-)
(PS - You totally...SUCK! And I'm sooo totally outing either YOU or that Blind Item about the HIV singer. So who's baaad now? Your move smartass.)

BigMama said...

Gosh I hate being out of a loop, makes me feel like a bran flake in a bowl of cheerios

selenakyle said...

O-Kaaayyyy...

Boriqua said...

I'm now following Enty. As well as some of you other fine peeps. :)

BigMama said...

Found ya! (I hate twitter and don't usually go on, now i have a reason)

I bet some "exposure" would be a nice bet for this site.

Karmen said...

I'm not a fan of Twitter, but if it means that a long blind will be revealed, I'll dust off my old boutique's Twitter account and follow you.

Just make sure you keep your FB and Twitter accounts linked!

feraltart said...

I am now following Enty on Twitter. @Himmmm, do you have anything from the Golden Globes for us. I don't even need salacious, just like the idea we have an insider who can tell us tidbits, like the extras on DVD's.

FS said...

RQ, please post your dreams more often. That was hilarious and I needed it.

Hope you and the "parasite" are both doing very well. :)

Bnl1016 said...

@feraltart - We have several "insiders" here. Of course I wasn't at the GGs, but when there's award shows at Radio City you best believe I'm in attendance. I usually go to NYC fashion week too.

Maja. With a J. said...

RQ, I saw that. I chuckled. *L*

feraltart said...

Cool @Bnl1016, look forward to your insights.

amh.producer said...

I loathe twitter but I'll find enty once I'm back to a computer.

Kristin said...

LA peeps, I am heading there on Sunday for a business trip. We get in at 11:30 am and have an afternoon to kill. Any tips on what to do and where to go? One thought was lunch or dinner in Malibu. Any ideas for Sunday and evening activities (We are there for 2 weeks) is greatly appreciated!

FS said...

If everyone could please excuse this shameless post...

Himmmm, is you know anyone who needs a part time PA, let me know please. Merci.

Seachica said...

@foofoo - I am in Seattle near the U District, and made it into work in Bellevue via bus today. Only about 5 other people here. Stay warm and enjoy the meltdown! Hope we both continue to have power.

Lori said...

followed:)

Sherry said...

@RQ: How funny. I had a dream a few weeks back that I kisseed George Clooney. I have never really been attracted to George (yeah Brad any day!)but it was such a great kiss I was crushing on him for a week afterwards.

Is HIMMMMM serious? What happened there?

I have twitter account I NEVER use..I forgot my sign on. I'm in trouble enough for the smart phone. Twitter would end the marriage to Opster.

Himmmm said...

GOLDEN GLOBE SECRETS?
Okay...but ONLY if you PROMISE not to tell anyone, deal? (just between us -ha!:-)

Meryl Streep was so drunk she couldn't remember Marty Scorsese's name. Kept calling him "MARVIN". No joke.

During a commercial break, after the beaver joke, Jodie Foster threw a MASSIVE spitball at Ricky Gervais and it CONNECTED. Everyone clapped. Ricky said: "Nice shot. That's the first hit you've had in 20 years!". Everyone ROLLED, incl. Jodie. (Touche she said).

In the men's room backstage, Angelina Jolie walks out (by herself) before I walk in. Two gorillas guarding the door escorting her stand guard. I raised my eyebrows and she says: "If I knew you were coming I'd have waited a little longer". Made my night. I just stopped smiling an hour ago. Still not sure WHY she was in there (??).

Johnny Depp got a handjob under the table and I'm pretty sure he got a happy ending judging by the stain.

for FS: Sorry, I "is not" personally knowing anyones in need :-) (I'm just joking as I make horrific grammar mistakes myself ;-)
Seriously, if you mean PRODUCTION ASST.? Go hunt down something called the HCD/Hollywood Creative Directory (maybe online these days). Send out a res to every TV show shooting. Especially like True Blood and Justified who ALWAYS need assts. If you mean PERSONAL ASST.? The best bet is to offer your services for cut rate to a new star or up/comer unless you already have experience. In which case you send out a proposal package to every agency and mgmt. firm in the biz. Turnover is massive, and if you are trustworthy and clean, they ALWAYS need a trusted asst. Especially that asshat Clooney. He always needs people to clean up his messes. Total slob. Typically "stars" hire the assts. of their agents or managers to work for them. Or...so I've been told. If you can win Trivial Pusuit, dispose of dead hookers, and procure blow in 2 mins. or less I bet Brian Grazer or Charlie Sheen will hire you.

BigMama said...

Holy Shit!

(dozens are looking up who Johnny Depp was seated next to and praying it wasn't ....well...)

Love Jodi Foster now I love her even more.

The Black Cat said...

BigMama - that's EXACLTY what I did LOL

RocketQueen said...

lol BigMama @ "my mistake" - you gave me a hearty chuckle yourself! What a BURN!

Himmmm said...

FS: I'm TRULY sorry for joking, sincerely. I jsut now realized you must be French. (Yes, I'm slow). In which case your English is great. You might consider a query to the management of Jean Dujardin. There's no way I can POST to you how to contact him without it spilling out everywhere. But, with a little resourceful work you can find that info. I DO know he's looking.
Je suis désolé. S'il vous plaît pardonnez-moi. Bonne Journee!

califblondy said...

Thanks Himmmmm, I knew Meryl called Tilda "Zelda" during her speech.

You must be hot to be hit on by Angelina. And I'm not talking in a Billy Bob sort of way.

Johnny Depp? Really? Gross. Damn, take that shit to the parking lot or bathroom like the classy people.

kerri said...

Himmmm, you made my day!

Entry, I only signed up to twitter to follow you

RenoBlondee said...

Man, that was surely a fun reply string to read! Thanks everyone!

Himmmm said...

Califblondy: LOL - because ALL the classy people go to the bathroom for a quickie! For all I know Depp may have done it to himself :-) Thanks but I'm horribly fugly. I make Billy Bob look like an Armani model. I think she mistook me for the bathroom attendant ;-)

Kerri: Thanks. I'm sure "Entry" also appreciates that (haha - like the way I spell "Jsut".).

Sorry to leave but I have an airplane and several customs people waiting to molest me. Have a great weekend!

JasonBlueEyes said...

Just followed you Enty. Realizing my last tweet was about Ashton and Demi - Two months ago.

Himmmm - Angie said that to you? I'd be high off that for a year. I'd have permanent Meg Ryan face.

Unknown said...

I'll follow you enty.

Please let the blind reveal be Coke mom!

Unknown said...

I'll follow you enty.

Please let the blind reveal be Coke mom!

FS said...

Himmmm
I'm American, born and raised. It was a typo, which I usually take time to look for and correct. Not sure why I missed that one. The use of merci was just a mood I was in. :)

I meant personal assistant. I have a ton of experience as a scheduler/exec ass't in politics, but I have no desire to go back. Looking for something a little 'different' and unusual this time around. Yes, I'm a good babysitter, but no, I'm not cheap. $40K minimum. Much more for the Clooney types.

Safe travels, and thanks for the info. :)

RocketQueen said...

Thanks, FS :)
A little bit more about my dream - as he went in for the kiss, I was vaguely aware of the fact that he's with Angelina, and I am, in fact, engaged. I thought about how Angie would prolly kick my ASS over this - skinny arms or not, then thought about my fiance and decided he'd be okay with it because it's BRAD PITT. And I went for it. But still, guiltily. I was a homewrecker in my dream!

BigMama said...

RQ- have you ever had one of those dreams about someone who wasn't considered "attractive" I had an unholy obsession with Willem Defoe because of a dream like that. I felt so....tainted. LOL

Alicia said...

Following!

Mooshki said...

Himmmm, are you still drunk from the GGs, or is this the Himmmm-jacker again? ;)

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Love this. Totally addicted to my Twitter.

@RQ - That dream sounded hilarious. I'm with you and @selenakyle - no tongue, ever. Sooooo gross. I can't deal with other peoples mouths like that.

DixieTheNoble82 said...

^^Oh & I hope you're doing well. :)

pilly said...

I've been watching the number of followers rise! Yay!

FS said...

RQ, if he's at the top of your laminated five, you are not a homewrecker. The rules of the laminated five are finite.

I'm not a big fan of tongue much myself but years ago I kissed a guy who had the softest touch and just barely tipped his in a millimeter. I cannot describe it, but my goodness it made my knees weak. Sadly, we were not compatible in the long run.

Stephanie said...

Hooray! I am on Twitter way more then Facebook so I am juiced you finally joined! I am following and number 1504

Wil said...

Figures. I literally just deleted my Twitter account last week because I never have anyone to tweet to. Well.. guess I had best figure out how to redo it.

30whatsnext said...

Lelaina Pierce said...
