Jerry Seinfeld joins Twitter: 'Am I done yet?'

A few months after brushing off the idea of a Twitter account, Jerry Seinfeld has given in. The 57-year-old comedian/actor can now be found offering 140-character bites of his thoughts via the account @SeinTime.

Seinfeld's rep told the New York Times - which reported back in May that the comedian wasn't interested in tweeting - that it's definitely him. "It's really Jerry," the rep said. "The day we've all been waiting for."

Except Seinfeld himself doesn't seem too thrilled with the site. His first tweet on Friday: "Greetings Tweetarians! I have just landed on your Planet. This could be my last Tweet." It wasn't, but tweet No. 2 wasn't any more enthused. "Second Tweet! Am I done yet?"

Not quite. Seinfeld continued testing his Twitter skills twice on Saturday, but has been quiet since.

    I can't stand anymore when people/readers comment "this isn't news". Well your right, its off the entertainment section. So if you want "news" click on another catagory and stop pointing out the obvious..geeze.

    His tweet about Jews and Nazi prison camps was left out of this article. He made a joke about the concentration camps. It wasn't funny at all. Maybe he has been hanging out with Michael Richards bc it was really offensive.

    Jerry, a living legend, if you think otherwise, you don't know a thing about comedy. And if you are posting a comment on here hating on him, you are a joke.

    I could care less if Jerry tweets or even eats but I can say one thing Seinfeld was one of if not the funniest shows ever to broadcast on television.

    Hey Jerry, Does your TV have a remote control? That too is brand new technology. You can even pay bills online without licking a stamp dropping in a mailbox. Newman!!!!!!!! -Art

    The show was funny.....he is not. God, I wish he was done. Just go away, never to return. Shame on CNN for thinking this was worth reporting.

    • @ Jon

      Just be grateful that CNN felt that your comment was worth keeping let alone allow you to comment in the first place.
