President Barack Obama may be the leader of the free world, but actor Ashton Kutcher is the king of twitter and pop princess Britney Spears is, er, its princess.
Obama’s twitter feed recently attracted its 3 millionth follower, which was announced with this tweet — “As we kick off 2010, our Twitter community has grown to over 3 million. I continue to be grateful for your partnership as we work for change” — on Monday afternoon.
The development made Obama’s feed — actually run by the Democratic Party’s National Committee — only the fourth ever to garner such attention. But he still remains far behind the leaders, the Hill newspaper noted on its “Twitter Room” blog. They each have 4 million followers, the blog said, citing TwitterCounter .
Of course, Kutcher sends his own tweets, of which he wrote: ”I make stuff, actually I make up stuff, stories mostly, collaborations of thoughts, dreams and actions. Thats me.” Recent samples of Kutcher’s missives — which can be up to 140 characters long — include a link to a “sick” snowboarding video, a short thank you note to his vacation (“Dear, Vacation You were amazing. Thank you, Ashton.”) and the observation “Hung over yoga hurts.”
