While we were psyched to see some of our favorites like Taylor Swift, Neil Patrick Harris, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Conan O’Brien, Mindy Kaling, Jimmy Fallon and Ellen DeGeneres, we couldn’t help but notice some glaring omissions.
Check out five of our favorite tweeters who were inexplicably left off the list after the jump!
Chris Colfer (@chriscolfer): Who doesn’t have a special place in their heart for Chris Colfer? Not only has the “Glee” star handled some heavy story lines on the show with grace, humor and depth, but he’s just as mature and entertaining in real life (not always a combo that goes hand-in-hand!). We always look forward to when Chris posts, from his humble post-Golden Globe win (“I can’t believe it. I’m not sure how much my shaky hands can tweet, but thank you so much! Couldn’t do what I do without you guys!”) to his hilarious musings (“I’m going to start my ’own’ network too. CCC: The Chris Colfer Channel. It’ll mostly consist of space documentaries and alpaca contests”) he’s definitely one of our top tweeters.
Diablo Cody (@diablocody): While writing a hilarious and heartfelt Oscar-winning screenplay like “Juno” is no small feat, we’re continually impressed by how much funny Diablo Cody can fit in a single tweet. Though you might be thrown when you see the name Brook Busey (Diablo is her pen name), you’ll know you’re at the right place when you read clever tweets like, “What if Kate Middleton is actually a cunning sea witch who’s stolen the voice of Prince William’s true love?” and “I love people that go to gossip sites and type “WHO CARES?” in the comments. You do, you little cutie!”
Ian Somerhalder (@iansomerhalder): As Damon Salvatore, Ian Somerhalder has a bit of a bad streak on “The Vampire Diaries,” but in real life, the handsome actor-activist only uses his power for good, especially on Twitter. In addition to answering followers’ questions and reporting from the “TVD” set (“TVD is wrapped for weekend!To all the awesome ladies I just met-sorry to be so rushed.Production needed me off the clock and Damon’s clothes”), Ian often uses his page as a forum for information on causes, including the one nearest and dearest to his heart, the environment (we also follow his Ian Somerhalder Foundation on Twitter!).
Jamie Campbell Bower (@jamiebower): We wish we could put this in less simple terms than this, but Jamie Campbell Bower makes us giggle. Yes, we’re always excited when he shares things from the set of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” and “Breaking Dawn” (“http://twitpic.com/3y1qau”) but we really look forward to when JCB lets his silly side show. From his poems (“Fillings done. Mouth numb. Pizza fun. Touch my bum?”) to his over-sharing with followers (“Literally about to wee myself with excitement for new Strokes single”), he’s one of the funniest, friendliest celebrity tweeters out there.
Pink (@pink): Let’s face it, Pink is one of the most badass chicks out there (and a pregnant, one at that!). So it’s of no surprise that the singer, who always rocks our world, rocks the Twitterverse too. Whether she’s referring to herself as “fat mama,” gabbing with her hubby Carey Hart (“Aww you’re so cute. I like you so much”, she tweeted to him), or calling out the entertainment industry (“Out of Myself, Britney, and Christina- didn’t everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker? LOOK MA!!! No CUFFS!!!”), Pink is one character who is really good at sharing 140 of them.
