Twitter is the social networking phenomenon that allows people to express what nobody else cares about in 140 characters or less and share it with the unsuspecting masses. It's like Facebook, minus all the things that make Facebook useful and entertaining. But sometimes celebrities break free of their public relations teams and let loose on Twitter to their own detriment — and to our delight.
We've rounded up 14 of the most ridiculous celebrity tweets that make Twitter worth reading.
I'm on this NBA2k10 so...... yea you know where to find me. "Online" - Bow Wow
This reminds me, I have to update my Twitter too — Playing some CoD. Yeah, call of duty. the game. Ps3, that one. Playin now, its online so yeah. Im online playing it. “Online”.
Bow Wow, formerly known as Lil Bow Wow, is a young rapper somewhere between the ages of 14 and 25, but nobody really knows. He has a tendency to over-tweet.
Im getting an xbox controller tatted on my arm. they say tats post to be meaningful, thats apart of my life video gaming. - Bow Wow
Bow Wow doesn't stop there, offering this insightful musing on culture. Like getting an Xbox controller tattoo. Not just any Xbox controller tattoo, though. A 'meaningful' Xbox controller tattoo.
Face numb im whippin the lambo. Tispy as f*k. Just left @livmiami. Im f**ked up!!! Ohhhh damn. Y i drive the lambo. Chris might have to drive after next spot. - Bow Wow
Not picking on Bow Wow or anything. He just says a lot of ridiculous things. This one was picked up at the start of the year, chronicling the young artist's drink driving exploits. Like anybody reads that Internet thing, anyway. He later removed the tweet and wrote a formal apology in its place.
My mama came in here and pour water on me just to wake me up!! -_- I'm dumb tired right now!!! Ima Get fresh & head to my grandma house!! - Lil Twist
Lil Twist is a prepubescent rapper who was found similarly to Lil Bow Wow at a live performance and then picked up by hip hop star, Lil Wayne (why is everyone so 'little'?) Being so young (somewhere between eight and 16) means his life experience is limited to playing with his dog, sleeping in and being told off by his mother. So that is all his tweets are about. Yet he still amasses the followers. But hey — what's more gangsta than getting woken up by your mother with a bucket of water?
My dog Rondo is a Gangsta!! - Lil Twist
His dog Rondo apparently.
If u sleeping on me... Die in yo sleep - Lil Twist
And sometimes 'celebrity' tweets are just downright confusing. Case in point: this tweet by Lil Twist. I wonder how his school friends feel about sleepovers.
Stop stirring up trouble Perez, you’re disgusting.Hell awaits you.You are only getting a taste now.U R the one who is likely to get AIDS! - Michael Lohan
Popularised by B-list stars like Lindsay Lohan is the art of celebrity Twitter fighting, where stars conduct a flame war by aiming 140 character rants at each other in front of an audience of online followers. While Lindsay may be at the fore, her dad, Michael Lohan, is not far behind. He was recently embroiled in an online stoush with celebrity gossip reporter Perez Hilton. In his multitude of tweeting rants, Michael referred to Perez’s love of "sausage" making him prone to "AIDS!"
On the streets in the city randomly spray tanning peoples faces with SunLove, haha yes! - Nicole Polizzi
Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi makes the Lohan family pale in comparison when she's in action — just read her tweets. Just as a little FYI: 'Snooki' was delivered a knockout punch in the jaw from a man she accused of stealing drinks in a New Jersey club, an incident that was broadcast on MTV reality TV show, Jersey Shore. After reading her tweets, it starts to seem a little less surprising.
Morning! Went for a run. Now I have to get my day going. My legs are so soar from yesterday… I kind of love being soar. I know it worked - Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian is famous for being the sister of famous person Kim Kardashian. Kim Kardashian is famous for being Kim Kardashian. Apart from that, the duo co-star in a reality TV show about their family, Keeping up with the Kardashians. Thanks to this, she has a long list of followers that either don't care about spelling or think she can fly.
Oi vey don’t f*ck with my wardrobe or you will end up in a circle scorched earth hunted 'til your head. - Courtney Love
Front-woman of '90s grunge band Hole, Courtney Love is no stranger to the limelight and it's often for the wrong reasons. As we've seen already, some tweets that pop up are outright weird, but this one takes the cake. Not only is it weird, but it earned Courtney a lawsuit with a fashion designer.
Hey @aimeemann stop worrying bout my acting bitch, and worry about your WACK ass music. In the mean time.. Eat a hot bowl of Dicks! - Ice T
Rapper and Law and Order star (nice combo) Ice T is infamous for his Twitter attacks on critics, and this tweet is one of the best examples of T-rage in action over the tubes. No celebrity can harness visual imagery quite like Ice T.
Such an exciting day. Going to bed now. Goodnight. - Nick Jonas
Nick Jonas is one of the brothers in child-friendly teen band The Jonas Brothers. Which one? Who cares? Anyway, rather than filling Twitter's void of interesting information, Jonas decides here to make reference to something potentially interesting but then segue off to the same boring, "doing something mundane that everyone does every day like sleep so thought I should tell everyone" routine, just like every other celebrity Twitter user. Damn, there was nearly something of substance there too.
My dog Poker is very reasonable. I like that. - Neil Diamond
Maybe we've just gotten used to the temper tantrums and fiery feuds of the younger, more arrogant celebrities, but it seems that Neil Diamond is attempting to steal Carson Daley's pole-position as most abhorrently boring person on the planet. This tweet epitomises why Twitter critics believe the medium is useless.
Why is that people always try to understand estimate my intelligents?! They should never do that! I haven’t been on (cont.) http://tl.gd/u6vo - Mary J. Blige
This post has since been deleted from R&B singer Mary J. Blige’s Twitter account, but was screen captured by a vigilant blog so as to preserve the memory forever. There's nothing more that needs to be said about this tweet, frankly.
