15 Twitter Dont’s We Learned From Celebrities

May 14, 2013  |  
Twitter can be as fascinating as it can be annoying. We love getting to know celebrities through their 140 characters, but sometimes their Tweet etiquette could use a little brushing up. Here are a few Twitter don’ts we learned from a few of our favorite Twitter accounts.
Nicole 1

Glamour Tweets

Not everyone wants to read about how beautiful you think you are. Nicole Richie’s Twitter account used to be filled with Glamour Tweets, but now that Nicole is no longer under Paris’s narcissistic influence, she’s finding out that she can attract more fans with funny tweets than with vain ones. Now she makes fun of her old Glamour Tweets in her new webisode show #CandidlyNicole.

Jon

Bathroom Tweets

What happens in the bathroom should stay in the bathroom. And we’d like to share that rule with Lil’ Jon so he can spare his 800,000 followers from news about his restroom business.

Amanda

Tweets About Your Lady Parts

We’ve all had celebrity crushes from time to time, but there are better ways to discuss them than talking about the lady downstairs. And if Amanda is listening, we’d like to extend this rule to photos of lady parts too.

Seth

Tweets About Your Bedroom Habits

Why not save the intimate details of your kinky bedroom activities for your autobiography? Seth Rogen has 755, 000 followers and most of them are going to have trouble getting this imagery out of their heads when they’re watching This Is The End.

PaulaA

Misspelled Inner Monologue Tweets

Not every passing thought is worth a tweet. And Paula’s page is filled with misspelled, loopy, disjointed posts. Why not save those 140 characters for something important? Maybe then some of Paula’s 2.5 million followers might actually tweet back.

TomC

“Philosophical” Tweets

It’s not polite to talk about religion or politics at dinner parties. But should the same rules apply to Twitter? Tom Cruise’s tweets suggest that maybe they should. Perhaps he should save his theories about Justin Bieber’s place in the universe for Scientology discussion groups and spare his 4 million followers.

KimK

IQ Confessions

Anyone can sound intelligent in 140 characters. So why wouldn’t you try? Maybe Kim should have someone proofread her Tweets before she sends them out. Or maybe she should just stick to twit pics. We like those better anyway.

KateG

Tweeting in Lolspeak

Lolspeak was acceptable when we all typed our texts on numeric keypads. But now everyone has QWERTY keyboards at home and on their phone. It’s time to drop the abbreviations. Kate saved 3 seconds typing these abbreviations and I wasted 30 seconds rereading them to try and figure out what they say.

50CAbortion Jokes

You wouldn’t think this needed saying, but apparently 50 Cent isn’t familiar with the line between funny and inappropriate. This joke isn’t even funny. It’s just crass. Maybe try your inappropriate out on a small audience before immortalizing them on Twitter.

Cher3

Unedited Tweets

We all know Cher can string a sentence together. But if her tweets are the only thing that survives, music fans of the future are going to assume that she’s mentally challenged. I think everyone should get a Tweet Check Buddy. A little re-reading and we could all avoid confusing the mess out of our followers.

NicoleP

Tweets About Breast Milk

We’re trying hard, but we can’t think of any reason to include the words “breast milk” in a Tweet. We don’t know Jersey Shore’s Nicole Polizzi’s followers, but we’re pretty sure that they don’t want to know to hear this. We know they didn’t want to see the video.

Mobyy

Racist Tweets

Like Moby’s here. Moby has a reputation of taking pot shots at the hip hop community. But he certainly crossed the line with this tweet that suggests seeing more black people in the MoMa would make it the “new hood.” Mess like this is a great way to get your followers to hit the “unfollow” button.

KanyeW

Diva Tweets

We’re on the fence about this one. Kanye’s diva moments are some of his best. Should you stifle a tweet if its going to elicit an eye roll? Or do you tweet on with your narcissistic self?

Diddy

Anything About Ciroc

Because Diddy’s got that on lock. If we never read another Tweet about Ciroc again, it’ll be too soon. We know that Diddy retweets any pic or tweet that has anything to do with Ciroc. But we could all use a break. So maybe we can all stop tweeting about Ciroc until Diddy agrees to give us a cut of the check.

JuicyJ

Phone Number Tweets

We thought this went without saying. But apparently Juicy J didn’t get the message. Remember when he put his manager on blast with this tweet?

    Know what, people can tweet about whatever they want. You don’t like it, don’t read them. Its that simple. You choose to follow them. If you have a problem with what they Tweet about, then choose not to.

  • RJA

    But I laughed at 50’s though

  • I_am_a_Gladiator/Scandalista

    Kanye….that’s y you ran into a pole

  • SociableHermit

    I miss the days when I just THOUGHT some celebrities were dumb as hell. Now their tweets remove all doubt.

  • IvyNoLeague

    Did Kanye really tweet that ? lol

    • js

      Chiiiiiiiile. Yes he did.

  • Gworl!

    Public service announcement: please for your own sake and the sake of the children, stay off twitter!

  • Zettai

    You guys had me until you started separating the author’s comments from the tweets, trying to force me to read an extra page and get an extra hit for all your advertisers. What the hell? I hope to heaven I hit the lotto one day so I can pay cheap-ass Egypt to stop doing these multi-page stories for money.
