Remember the days when you had to write a letter to a celebrity put in in an envelope with a stamp and mail it off? Then you'd wait for weeks praying for a response! Boy how technology has changed! I enjoy interacting with the various celebrities on twitter and it always makes my day when they occassionaly respond back! :-)

While I know everyone now a days uses the internet, I am a bit of a sceptic. I have no way of knowing who I am really talking to so I'm not going to believe their status. I don't really interact much as it is. Quite often I'll usually post something to twitter through my phone usually complaining about my day or just doing something out of bordom. But, I'm glad you're happy with it.

Hi. Thanks for your response. One way you can know when you are really talking to a certain celebrity their profile on twitter will have a check mark on it that says verified.

Yup. With Twitter, celebrities can verify their account, to show that it is who it is. Granted that is that celebritiy is the one sending the messages and not an employee or assistant of the celebrity.

It certainly is neat. I still prefer the mail away method. Those days were far more exciting.

I've never corresponded with a celebrity, never had a desire to...especially today's "stars". Now, maybe Paul Newman...

I feel that the Internet has made it easier for the younger and more modern generations to communicate with others, including celebrities, easier. However, for those such as my grandparents or even parents, it is a negative to them, because they have a harding time understanding the Internet and don't want to sit there trying to figure it out. Now-a-days, a lot of celebrities, do not even have a mailing address, but instead have an email, website, or Twitter as mentioned above. That's just my opinions on the use of the Internet and Twitter.
