I love Twitter. On Twitter you meet all kinds of people. On Twitter you can interact with people on the other side of the world. On Twitter you can talk to celebrities. On Twitter you can embarrass yourself.
The other day Rocky Carroll was tweeting. NCIS fans will know Rocky as Director Vance. He often fields questions from fans.
The other day he tweeted: "Whenever we get a script and Vance uses another character's first name, I immediately change it. It keeps Vance at arms length."
I didn't exactly understand what he meant and I tweeted my confusion to him. He then proceeded to RT my confused tweet and my mentions column promptly filled up with helpful fans explaining what he meant. Rocky himself then clarified the statement.
I was only a tad embarrassed that my lack of understanding was RT'd to 15,800+ people. But it was nice to be acknowledged and actually answered.
Yesterday I was watching Supernatural. The episode Born Under A Bad Sign. Sam goes all evil and goes after Jo. Jo, played of course by the lovely Alona Tal.
I like Jo. I like Alona. I just noticed, as she was standing there wiping down the bar, that she is really thin. I tweeted "Could Alona Tal be skinnier? Someone give that girl a sandwich."
For the record: I don't think she looks bad or unhealthy, she's just super thin.
Well, later that night I was minding my own business, in bed with Rupert and I thought I would look at my mentions on Twitter. There it was.
From Alona Tal: i love you.
I didn't even tag her in the tweet. She's sneaky that one.
I died a little from embarrassment and assured her that I loved her too. *HeadDesk*
All in all I got recognized/tweeted/acknowledged by four actors/celebs on twitter in the past week.
I love Twitter.
