Tweets of the Rich(ish) and Famous(like)

I guess A-List Hollywood has not yet caught the Twitter bug. How else to explain the appearance of CNN’s Rick Sanchez on the (New York) Daily News’s list of “Top 10 celebrities on Twitter” (to say nothing of MC Hammer or Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles who, the News reports, recently Twittered: “I feel and look homeless. At least the weather is nice.”)

And speaking of Sanchez and Twitter, I could do without his and his viewers’ Tweets taking up a portion of CNN’s screen during the White House press briefings; I’ve yet to notice one that really enhances the experience.
