Your Ultimate Guide to TV on Twitter (Actors)

Hi my name is Daniel and I’m a twitterholic.

Nary an hour goes by when I don’t update my Twitter profile or check what my friends are up to. Seriously, it’s a big problem! And one that is about to get a heck of a lot bigger now that the ‘traditional’ media and mainstream celebrities such as Ellen, Shaq and Britney Spears have all caught on.

Which is why we thought we’d spend this week celebrating this massive time suck highly addictive social media platform before its status as ‘next big thing’ runs out and everybody moves onto the next myfacebookspacefeedr (beta).

    fyi, @alydenisof is actually Alyson Hannigan (BUFFY, HIMYM), not her husband, Alexis (BUFFY, ANGEL). @TinaFey and @SethRogen are known fakes. And @stephentcolbert was fake but gave up the username for the real Stephen Colbert who I don’t think has ever used it. There’s also:
    @jgarlin (Jeff Garlin, CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM)
    @PaulFeig (ok not an actor, but funny! FREAKS & GEEKS and THE OFFICE)
    @PennGillette (Showtime’s BULLSH*T)
    @diablocody (another non-actor, but fun to follow) UNITED STATES OF TARA)

  • eb

    The Leighton Meester and George Takei accounts are fake.

  • bobby

    Jensen Ackles and Jared Pedelecki DO NOT have Twitter account! See the CW website..

  • Lynn

    I think a lot of these aren’t real. Tina Fey said she doesn’t do twitter. Hilarie Burton only uses twitter from Southern Gothic Productions. And it doesn’t really seem like that’s really Jensen.

    Thanks for the list though That much have been hard work to compile! And it definitely does come in handy.

  • KTan

    There is also Anthony Stewart Head (AnthonySHead). This account is real as his official website confirms.

  • http://raked.wordpress.com Raked

    Pretty sure Jason Segal has vehemently said that he’ll never be on Twitter. That one’s probably fake.

  • ChuckFan

    @zacpugh is Zachary Levi from NBCs CHUCK. Confirmed by several people, including his girlfriend, singer @CaitlinCrosby and CHUCK writer @AliAdler.

  • Glorificously

    @Jason_Segel is confirmed fake.

    Alyson Hannigan said this from her Twitter a few days ago:
    “For the record @Jason_segel is a FAKE!!! Still working on getting the REAL Jason to twitter on his own.”
