As prevalent as Twitter is among both celebs and regular folks alike, we sometimes forget what a huge step it is for someone, particularly a public figure, to decide to put it all out there, 140 characters at a time.
“I’ve stayed away from Twitter for a long time because I didn’t trust myself with such a very intimate but public way of relating to the world,” Twilight star and Twitter newcomer (@reasereaser) Elizabeth Reaser told VH1′s Kate Spencer on the red carpet at the VMAs. “But I feel like I’ve studied it enough, and I realized I was going on other people’s Twitter pages and I love seeing what my friends are up to. I love communicating with people, and I’ve actually kind of fallen in love with it.
“It’s a legal form of voyeurism, and I’m into it,” she added. “You don’t have to leave the house but you can communicate.”
After just five days on the service, Reaser admitted, “I’m really addicted to it now. It’s embarrassing. I’m having a really good time.” And we’re having a good time following her. In addition to chatting with her onscreen husband Peter Facinelli as they took in the VMAs last night, the actress also shared a couple of awesome pictures of herself: first in the car on the way to the show, then with the Fierce Five.
Oh, and she was also at the show to help present a 90-second sneak peek at Breaking Dawn – Part 2. After five years of promo blitzes for the franchise, we wondered if she and her co-stars are maybe ready to be done with it?
“We’re ready but we’re not done yet,” she said. “This is a huge movie!”
