Some guys start their day with a cup of coffee and reading the morning newspaper. I start my day with a bowl of cereal and reading Star Trek News! I always check the news feed at the official CBS web page as well as checking a few blogs like Trek Movie. But what if that’s not enough? I still have half a bowl of cheerios left and I’m all out of Trek news. Luckily some of my favorite Star Trek actors are active tweeters! It’s a lot of fun to read actual thoughts and messages people like George Takei, William Shatner and others. Twitter makes these celebrities seem a little more “real”. Unlike some famous people, these tweets aren’t written by a PR firm or a marketing department. When you read Leonard Nimoy’s tweets you’re reading Leonard Nimoy’s actual words. I think he likes connecting to his fans so directly. Spock isn’t the only one either– at last year’s NJ convention Jeri Ryan told everyone in the crowd to follow her on Twitter.
Here are some of my favorite recent tweets from some familiar friends:
Family Guy gave me a hilarious “shout out” last night. Have you seen it? http://ow.ly/4y2g9 #TheSuluShowWorking on Transformers. Isn’t it about time ??!! LLAPAnother pic of tonight’s stage in Auckland NZ. Show begins in a couple of hours. My best, Bill http://twitpic.com/4i6q5q
