When talk of a possible Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore split sparked a few weeks ago, the couple’s silent Twitter accounts only fueled the rumor mill flame.

Since then, people have been buzzing about what they are posting on the social networking site. And since neither party has tweeted anything along the lines of, say, “It’s over! I’m free! So long, famous significant other!”, followers have been chomping at the bit to find anything that resembles a clue about the status of their relationship. Because, what else is there to do? Get a hobby? Psh.

After Kutcher’s alleged mistress gave her story to US Weekly, the Two and a Half Men star posted what some are calling “cryptic” tweets. In one, Kutcher linked to a picture of “Ctrl” and “Esc” cufflinks from his page, which lead me to believe that the actor is simply a total nerd who likes a good set of cufflinks. Nothing really scintillating about that. But, then again, Kutcher (who just so happened to wish Moore well on her directing effort for the Lifetime short film anthology Five) also wrote in the tweet, “If we are not looking for one we are looking for the other Ctrl Esc.” Sooooo… maybe he lost one of those cool cufflinks? Details developing!

In addition to posting a picture of someone with a screaming mouth doodled over their hand, it’s Kutcher’s Twitter background that also has people asking questions. A picture of a numberless-clock with hands that point to “Anxiety” and “Fear” can only mean one thing, PopWatchers: At any given time of day… you’ll be able to find a re-run of That ’70s Show on television. Seriously, that thing is quickly becoming like the Law & Order of sitcoms.

Phew, glad we cracked that code! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to figuring out one of Twitter newbie Samuel L. Jackson‘s latest posts which reads, “Yo- check me and the Avengers fam in our dope new trailer.” I could be wrong, but I think he wants us to watch this.

What do you think Ashton Kutcher’s “cryptic” tweets mean, PopWatchers? Do they really give clues about his possible split from Demi Moore or do they somehow inadvertently explain plot points from The Butterfly Effect away? Share in the comments section below!
