Find out by following the TV vet’s brand new Twitter account, which EW can confirm is the real deal. (He joined the site last Friday; blame Sandy for us not reporting this important news sooner.)

Ricky Martin is still “livin’ la vida loca.”
The bangin’ singer-turned-Broadway star tweeted a pantsless picture of himself over the weekend (your treat for the day) after auctioning off his trousers to benefit the nonprofit AIDS fundraising organization Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. You know what that means, right? You can finally get into Ricky Martin’s pants!

If it’s trending, you can bet celebs are going to tweet about it.
And this weekend, there was no bigger story than the impending “Frankenstorm.” Morning news – and particularly the weather people strolling the New Jersey boardwalk — had plenty to say, and they weren’t the only ones. Most simply tweeted messages of support, but others started questioning things. Lindsay Lohan, for one, thought the news was in hyper-panic mode: “WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane (i’m calling it Sally)..? Stop projecting negativity! Think positive and pray for peace.”
Check out what other celebrities — such as jokester Ricky Gervais and Andy Cohen — had to say about

Awesome: 68-year-old NPR news analyst and ABC News political commentator Cokie Roberts apparently confused Twitter with Google this morning. [Update: According to NPR Director of Media Relations Anna Christopher, this account is a fake -- and Cokie Roberts isn't actually on Twitter.] Awesomer: After a few futile searches, she decided to stop looking for an Applebee’s and start trying to recreate the chain’s dishes at home. Awesomest: The moment when she realized what she had done –
Clueless star Stacey Dash defended her Twitter endorsement of Mitt Romney yesterday on CNN’s Piers Morning Tonight after receiving extreme backlash on social media.
The former Single Ladies actress said, “I really don’t understand the fury. … But you know what, you can’t expect everyone to agree with you.”
Dash said she was “saddened and really shocked” by the racially charged firestorm, which included tweets such as “You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing Mitt Romney. You’re voting against yourself thrice, you poor beautiful idiot.” READ FULL STORY
Just take some advice from Lady Gaga: Joking about hurting animals is a no-win situation.
Jackass star Bam Margera found himself in the doghouse after he tweeted a photo of himself holding a (later revealed to be fake) gun to his puppy’s head along with the message, “Penny pooped in my bed. Not too fond of that. If it happens again, Penny goes Bye Byes!”
In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, 33-year-old Magera said the gun was fake, and that he was unaware of a rise in animal-abuse cases in the area. “I think those people need to go down,” he said, adding that he would’ve never posted the photo if he’d known about the recent instances of abuse. “Just hurting another animal is rude, crude and more.” READ FULL STORY
Maybe Kanye West is trying to create buzz for a new project, like that rumored Cruel Winter album. Maybe he wanted to cede the virtual spotlight to Kim Kardashian, who could really use more attention. Maybe he just realized he could never top “I specifically ordered persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh.”
Whatever the reason, West has officially deleted every single one of his brilliant, ridiculous tweets — minus an ominous message that simply reads “BE BACK SOON.”
It’s not right, but it’s okay. At least we’ll always have this video of Josh Groban singing Yeezy’s greatest Twitter hits:
Just as “Call Me Maybe” lip dubs give way to galloping “Gangnam Style” videos, so must this year’s political conventions give way to the debates.
Back in early September, President Obama’s convention speech set a record on Twitter, driving around 52,756 tweets per minute — more than any other political event in American history. (History began in March 2006, when Twitter was invented.) Last night, though, that record was shattered when Obama’s debate with Republican challenger Mitt Romney generated up to 158,690 tweets per minute, according to a graph generated by the social media site itself.
All in all, Twitter reports that more than 10 million tweets about the debate were sent during its 90-minute run time. By contrast, Twitter users sent 9.5 million tweets about the DNC over the course of its three days. The RNC inspired around 4 million total tweets.
- Are you looking for a way to become the “master of your domain,” “king of the county,” “lord of the manor,” “queen of the castle”? Rest assured, 50 Cent has the antidote for you. The rapper tweeted a simple, four-step “stop-masturbating” plan last night. Fitty, who’s always been a man of “the Book,” just wants his fans to live a “sin”-free life.
