do big stars really twitter?

Polonious said “brevity is the soul of wit” in Hamlet, and I don’t know what the fuck that means because quite frankly I can barely even read, but I think it might be relevant to twitter.  Because on there you’re forced to make every update no more than one or two sentences.  Lots of big stars use twitter all the time to keep in touch with fans, or another way to say that is that they don’t use twitter at all and someone else writes the entries for them.  The New York Times says…

In its short history, Twitter — a microblogging tool that uses 140 characters in bursts of text — has become an important marketing tool for celebrities, promising a level of intimacy never before approached online.But someone has to do all that writing, even if each entry is barely a sentence long. In many cases, celebrities and their handlers have turned to outside writers who keep fans updated on the latest twists and turns, often in the star’s own voice.

Britney, 50 Cent and Kanye are the three big names they list as using a ghost writer, which is surprising because I go to lots of haunted house movies and black people are terrified of ghosts.  Not me though.  I'm brave.  Except when I see Kirsten Dunst.  When this picture came out my friends found me the next day trembling under the table like an orphaned baby deer.
