Was Father’s Day ever celebrated before Kanye West became a dad this weekend? If you ask Twitter (or Kanye himself, for that matter), the answer is a resounding no.

The perfectly timed arrival of Baby Kimye, on Father’s Day Eve, has given the Internet a lot to work with. Jimmy Fallon got the Kanye Dad’s Day tweets started with this gem:

Hillary Clinton just launched your new favorite Twitter account

Sure, her first foray into micro-blogging wasn’t catalyzed by Stephen Colbert. But between her iconic avatar (which should look familiar), her Tumblr-baiting first tweet (which gives a shout-out to Texts from Hillary co-creators Adam Smith and Stacy Lambe), and her certifiably awesome bio (“Wife, mom, lawyer, women & kids advocate, FLOAR, FLOTUS, US Senator, SecState, author, dog owner, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, glass ceiling cracker, TBD…”), Hillary Clinton’s brand-new Twitter account has her husband’s beat. Maybe that wouldn’t be the case if he were still using @PrezBillyJeff as his handle.

'Bachelorette': One viewer gets tweet revenge

Though it’s pretty much irrefutable that Desiree and the suitors’ horrific rap video was the most embarrassing part of last night’s Bachelorette, ABC’s decision to flash live tweets at the bottom of the televised broadcast didn’t sit very well with some fans either. READ FULL STORY

Joss Whedon has joined Twitter

Geek auteur Joss Whedon has crafted beloved cult TV shows, endearingly low-budget experiments which prominently feature Nathan Fillion, and also that one ridiculously popular movie about witty-banter action figures. But now, Whedon is embarking on his most exciting and dangerous journey yet. As of about nine hours ago, Whedon has joined Twitter, with the handle @JossActual. (Although not yet Twitter Verified, the account has been Sister-In-Law Verified.) Whedon is already busy with a wide variety of projects — Avengers 2, Agents of SHIELD, the impending release of Much Ado About Nothing, the Firefly reboot you keep trying to will into existence, the Dollhouse reboot we just invented — but the writer/director is already twittering away on the tweetbox: READ FULL STORY

Bret Easton Ellis goes on Twitter rampage after alleged GLAAD Media Awards ban

Writer Bret Easton Ellis is famously outspoken on Twitter, so it’s no surprise that the social media site proved his venting outlet of choice after he learned that some callous remarks he made about the LGBT community landed him squarely on the not-welcome list for Saturday’s GLAAD Media Awards.

“As a gay man in a domestic partnership who plans to get married, I’m sad to hear I’ve been banned by GLAAD from attending tomorrow’s event,” Ellis tweeted. “GLAAD is supposedly ‘furious’ about my tweets. And I’m guessing not the ones concerning my boyfriend or how sexy I think Adam Driver is.”

Responding to Ellis’ allegations, GLAAD’s Vice President of Communications Rich Ferraro told EW, “Given the crude remarks he’s made about the gay community and people living with HIV/AIDS, this publicity stunt is not surprising.”

Stephen Colbert sets up Twitter account for Bill Clinton, has former prez dictate very first tweet

Tonight’s Colbert Report featured a suave, handsome icon beloved by millions for his political leadership and activism… as well as William Jefferson Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States.

Though the conversation between Clinton and Colbert — filmed at this year’s Clinton Global Initiative University, an annual meeting for college students and youth organizations — was certainly entertaining, it was also fairly predictable. Clinton was chatty and charming as always, while Colbert kept struggling valiantly not to be taken in by his guest’s charisma.

Near the end of the talk, though, Colbert had an actual surprise for Clinton: He had taken the liberty of setting up a brand-new Twitter account for the former president, who generally steers clear of social media. And while most of the monikers Colbert tried to snag were already taken, “@PrezBillyJeff” just happened to be free. (Who woulda thunk it?) Clinton, ever the good sport, proceeded to dictate his first-ever tweet to Colbert from the stage; you’ll find that special message below. READ FULL STORY
