James Franco may not have won the Best Actor Oscar, or the hearts of Oscar watchers (save our Ken Tucker), but according to Tweetbeat, which tracks the most talked about things on Twitter, he was by far the most tweeted about personality during last night’s Academy Awards. Of the estimated 400,000 Oscar-related tweets logged — half as many as the Super Bowl — 21,117 of them involved the actor/cohost.

Like a undefeatable hydra of productivity, each time we write about a new film, TV show, art project, book, class, mustache, soap opera, underwater re-enactment of the third season finale of Dynasty, James Franco look-a-like contest, or conjoined-twin separation surgery he’s involved in, two more career aspirations spring up to take its place.
