YOU GUYS MISHA IS NOW ON TWITTER!!!!

It's him, according to the show's publicist or something!

And he's already swearing on Twitter! Whee!!

Let's not scare him off, ya'll!!

ETA: Lil Miss X verified it and she works for the CW.

*twirls* I want to tweet him, but I don't know what to say!! LOL!

People keep saying the CW publicist verified they set him up with one, so...I dunno! I know the CW publicist thing Twitter says it's him, and she mentioned she's been trying to get him on for the past couple of weeks. She was Tweeting about his interviews, and telling him he needed one.

I hope he doesn't get overwhelmed

He already is. At first he thought nobody was replying to him, but then he clicked the sidebar that shows his messages and he's all "How am I supposed to respond to 400 messages!!" LOL!

I told him he's not supposed to reply to everyone! Shit, I don't need another Ashton Kutcher on my hands!

I know you're huge into Misha now and all, and he's pretty darn awesome, but this FREAKS ME OUT LIKE WHOA. Somewhere along the line, SOMEONE is going to link him to the more nefarious activities fandom gets up to, and I just *shudder* don't want to think about what would happen w/ that. DNW.

Sorry, I'm just one of those people who really wants to keep fandom separate from the makers of the show. It's already bad enough that Kripke trolls the message boards (and the wanky ones at that), any more mixing just makes me want to hide under a rock, lol.

Nah, Twitter doesn't really work that way--don't know if you have one or not, but the rapid fire nature of Twitter kind of doesn't allow for that.Half the stuff gets buried before you can read it. Imagine if you logged onto LJ and it said "Skip 2000" every hour. That's Twitter.

I mean, since I posted it, he'd already gained about 800 additional followers. And he's not really following anyone. Most celebs just use Twitter to blurb and don't really read their followers tweets.

I will be surprised if he comes back, since we freakin' broke his email account tonite (before he figured out he should turn off the tweet alerts) just welcoming him and leaving him instructions on how to use it when he was confused. He about shit his pants when he opened up his direct messages and saw he had over 400 and thought he had to reply to them all. He pretty much said he was gonna be ignoring the messages, so I bet we'll hear from him tomorrow with a reminder to watch the finale, and then we won't hear from him again. Despite what fandom thinks, he says he can barely work his email. Twitter might be a bit much for him.

I don't have one, though I contemplated getting one to follow one of my good friends who I don't talk to much outside of Facebook, but uhh...I think we'll have to agree to disagree here. You have seen our fandom, right? I get that there's not really much opportunity to do something, but the lengths people are willing to go for some things just astounds me. If the link is there (ie him having a twitter at all and allowing and even ENCOURAGING fans to follow), somewhere along the line (not necessarily right away while he's still new and not sure how to use it), I'm sure someone is gonna do something stupid and make life miserable for the rest of us.

I mean heck, half of the private pics of Jared and/or Jensen supposedly comes from one or the other's Myspace page, right (IF they even have one, which I'm not entirely convinced of anyway), and those are supposed to be on total lockdown where only RL friends and family can access them. People in this fandom can be batshit, and though I love Misha for wanting to reach out to us and kinda play here and there, I just have a bad feeing about it (especially w/ the way people are starting to be rabid fangirls of him, reminiscent of Jensen's crazies).

Hehe--I don't think any of Misha's fans are remotely as crazy as Jensen's fans. I thought I'd find some crazies, but most of them...aren't. I mean, we don't want to *own* him or anything the way the crazy Jensen fans do.

I don't see it as that big of a deal because celebs on Twitter are pretty commonplace. It's really completely different than Facebook or Myspace or LJ.

With Twitter, if you're not following anyone, and you don't read your @ messages (which Misha said he's not going to do because he doesn't have the time) then he's not going to see anything anyone posts anyway. You only see the lists of the people you're following. And he's not really following anyone except for 4 tweets the publicist cleared for him.

So at this point, all Misha appears to be set up to do with Twitter is to post messages, and not get replies or make replies.
