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!

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.
