Twitter to Jerry Seinfeld: 'Hello... Jerry.'
What’s the deal with Jerry Seinfeld waiting so long to join Twitter, you ask? Well, Question Asker, maybe you should just be thankful he’s here. Only a few months ago, the 57-year-old comedian told The New York Times that he had no plans to drop 140 or fewer on us, calling it “stand-up with a net.” Jerry seems to have changed his tune, but he hasn’t totally changed his tone, as his first two tweets were laced with playful reluctance: “Greetings, Tweetarians! I have just landed on your Planet. This could be my last Tweet.” And: “Second Tweet! Am I done yet?”
The Twitterverse didn’t take long to take notice: Jerry is currently trending, and he has already amassed more than 35,000 followers since he began tweeting three hours ago. Could it be mere minutes before we read GOLD, Jerry, GOLD? We are breathlessly sitting by. And if Seinfeld winds up enjoying his social networking experience, perhaps he can persuade his buddy Larry David to join! (Cut to: this never happening.) So, how do you feel about Seinfeld finally churning out some sweet tweets? And is there one comedian that you’ve been hoping will join Twitter?
