Who says the big guy in the sky isn’t looking out for us? Let’s welcome Miley Cyrus — the prodigal social networker — back to the Twitterverse after her year-and-a-half absence from the realm of 140-character wisdom.
“I’m not gonna lie,” Cyrus promised in one of her inaugural tweets. “I came back to twitter for 2 reasons. My fans and to follow @charliesheen #winning.” Obviously, Miley has been away from Twitter for too long, because she misspelled “4” as “for” and forgot that people thankfully stopped saying “not gonna lie” in late 2010. But let’s go easy on her — we don’t want to scare her off again.
If Charlie Sheen seems like an unlikely hero, this story’s villain is even more shocking. Cyrus originally deleted her account in October of 2009 at the behest of then-boyfriend (and Last Song co-star) Liam Hemsworth, the young actor who is all over the news today for nabbing the role of hero/romantic interest Gale in The Hunger Games movie adaptations.
Back in 2009 this was her final, troubling tweet: “Liam doesn’t have a Twitter and he wants ME to delete mine with good reason.” What was the “good reason”? Well, he wanted her to. Isn’t that reason enough? At least we know Hemsworth won’t have any trouble portraying Gale’s uncompromising, stubborn side.
Emerging from her self-imposed Internet isolation, Destiny Hope Cyrus has been typing up a storm on her @gypsyhearttour account since returning to the fold. These are some of the topics she’s covered so far:
Military action: “Let’s take over the world together!” she urged Jaden Smith.
Religion: “I woke up with 30,000 more followers!!! God is so good!”
Cuisine: “That sounds like a yummy! not an oops!” she tweeted after her half-sister Brandi poured sugar into her oatmeal instead of her coffee. Oh, the hijinks that go on in that family!
Will you be following Miley’s new account? What do you think about the fact that of the select few she follows, Nick Jonas is one of them? And like her, do you mainly stay on Twitter to follow Charlie Sheen and connect with your fans?
