If Twitter was an infinite piece of string – and certainly at this point in time that looks likely, the lack of making any serious money shenanigans aside – then it’s fair to say that eventually every single person would sign up to the network, and that, of course, includes all the celebrities.
Even the ones you wouldn’t expect. Like, perhaps, Samuel L. Jackson. That’s right – Jackson is now on Twitter. And he’s almost exactly like how you would expect.
Jackson, whose roles in movies such as Jurassic Park, Pulp Fiction, Unbreakable, the Star Wars prequels and several Marvel superhero films (as Nick Fury) have made him the world’s highest-grossing box office star, made his debut on Twitter on October 11, and this gem was one of his very first tweets.
He must have had an overwhelmingly positive response, because apart from a strange period where he asked a bunch of other Twitter celebrities to get people to follow him (which he later put down to bad advice), he’s been replying and effing with the best of them.
The account has already been verified by Twitter and, the somewhat strange avatar aside (which shows Jackson posing next to a ladder), it’s pretty much as you would hope it would be.
The best part? You find yourself reading all of Samuel L. Jackson’s tweets in Samuel L. Jackson’s voice. When you think about it, that’s got to be one of the greatest marks of respect you can give an actor. And Jackson’s voice is so definitive, and so entwined with his command of the curse word, that even though his feed is mostly nonsense you’ll have a whale of a time.
Just don’t try and take his briefcase.
