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

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
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.”
After two explosions occurred at the finish line of today’s Boston Marathon, celebrities have been tweeting their thoughts and prayers for the victims. New Kids on the Block singer Joey McIntyre was among the runners in the race, and wrote on his account that he was safe. Other Boston-based stars, including Donnie Walhberg, Chris Evans, Tom Bergeron and Maria Menounos also offered their support on the social network. Click below to see their tweets and more.

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
Ah, April Fools': The one day when you can’t believe everything you read online.
A Google product that leverages “photo-auditory-olfactory sensory convergence,” a Twitter initiative that asks users to pay for vowels, and bacon-flavored mouthwash are just the tip of the jocular iceberg this year. Read on for a list of some of the best gags we’ve come across so far; we’ll be updating it throughout the day.
The search giant/omnipotent Internet god’s next big project? Searchable smells. Somehow, this still doesn’t sound as ridiculous as Google Glass.
She’s gone undercover to throw people off her trail before (You all remember a little film called She’s the Man, right?) so here’s hoping something similar is going on now. Amanda Bynes – who clearly hasn’t exactly had the greatest couple of months – raised eyebrows once again last night when she tweeted, “I want @drake to murder my vagina.” [Bynes does not currently have public representation for EW to verify that her account wasn't hacked].
The controversial plea to the rapper has been retweeted over 17,000 times so far. A few moments later, she let her fans know that she is “twerking out” right now.
Sadly, “twerking out” is not another way to say “Hard at work on Moody’s Point: The Musical.”
