Duh Aficionado Magazine: Not Everyone Is On Twitter

Man, everyone is on Twitter these days, right? Every single person. Diddy is on Twitter. Sash Grey is on Twitter. Lindsay is on Twitter. It only follows that there is no one who is not on Twitter. It’s called Logic, and I studied it at the collegiate level.


Whether its about eating ribs in bed, fiscal policy analysis or quips about race relations, it’s clear that number of tweet-crazed celebrities is soaring.

But some stars are rolling their eyes at the new looky-loo trend.

Wait, whuuuuuut?! You mean to tell me that someone has something better to do than waste all their time on the internet? But who? Surely not the two dudes that plaster Lindsay’s Teen Beat wall.

“I’m afraid of the Internet. I’m too old to tweet,” said Paul Rudd when E! News caught up with the stars of I Love You, Man at Austin’s South by Southwest Film Festival. “So I don’t tweet, I tw-t.”

“If I didn’t talk to you in high school, I don’t need to talk to you you now,” agrees costar Jason Segal.

And while some stars will tweet their exact location and invite fans to rub up against them at a bus stop, Office vixen Rashida Jones isn’t so hot on the idea, “I don’t need to invite stalkers into my life. I just don’t really see the point.”

Whoa. Sorry, ladies. You will have to find another way to try and internet your way into their hearts. All those hopeful @jason_segels_penis and @paul_rudds_penis reply tweets are useless! (Reply tweets to @rashida_jones_penis are also useless.)

But you can still get one man’s twattention:

However, one high-profile Tweeter has become one bona-fide member of the Twitterati, actor and Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau. At a panel discussion for Rudd and Segal’s movie, titled “I Love You, Man: Are You Saying it Enough?”, Favreau applauded Twitter as a “grassroots” way to reach out to fans and generate word-of-mouth buzz for smaller movies.

Favreau live-twittered the event and even snapped pics of his tweet-shy costars Rashida and Jason, proving that the social-networking tool-cum-promotion machine may be here to stay, whether celebs like it or not.

That guy. When I see Jon Favreau I think “Cutting Edge.”

I think “Half human, half THE FUTURE.”

I love it. I can’t wait to hear what Jon Favreau ate and ate and ate for breakfast. THX 4 THE ADD.
