James Franco joins Twitter and Facebook

James Franco is now officially a member of both Twitter and Facebook. (And not a moment too soon; how else were we supposed to keep up with his never-ending career moves?)

"How's it going? This is James Franco," he says in a videotaped message posted on Facebook on February 18. "Just saying that this is the authentic Facebook and Twitter and every other page... All those other ones are impostors."

Franco, who had more than 120,000 followers on both sites as of press time, adds, "I've decided to go onto the Web, and this is the real thing. So, welcome. Don't listen to those other pages."

The Oscar host/nominee hasn't posted too many messages thus far, but he has shared quite a few images, including arty self-portraits, a cartoon sketch of an actor at an audition, and several photographs. Among them: Julia Roberts in "Steel Magnolias"; a plane passenger holding a sign urging viewers to join the Mile High Club; and, er, an unflushed toilet.

Will you follow the all-over actor on Facebook and Twitter?

    Yeah, ok, I got a facebook page, but I draw the line at Twitter. Even the name is dumb. Who the heck cares if i'm in line to buy a friggen soda. It's meaningless cr@p like this that spawns dumb articles like this.

    This has almost become a game where I try to guess the strange headline featuring Franco that will pop up next here on CNN. "James Franco apprehends bank robbers while filming his new movie."

    "How else were we supposed to keep up with his never-ending career moves", you ask? CNN could have joined the nearly 20,000 Followers on his official News twitter, which has been tweeting news, giftaways, and connecting his fans worldwide via #FrancoFanFriends for the past two years 🙂

      Actually, he's simultaneously in at least 6 films right now if you count the short films he's directed. His current mainstream films–Date Night, Green Hornet, Eat Pray Love, Howl, and 127 Hours–are currently opening or playing around the world. And last year he was enrolled at 4 universities at the same time (now at Yale and RISD), as well as on General Hospital, the cover of GQ (to name just one of his many magazines covers in 2010), had an art exhibit in New York City (now in Berlin), appeared at several film festivals (Toronto, Berlin, Sundance, etc), posted several shorts on FunnOrDie (one with his grandma!), published his first collection of short stories, became the face of Gucci cologne, oh and yes, now he's co-hosting the Oscars. I'm sure we've forgotten something lol. Follow us on Twitter to see why CNN and most other media outlets find him interesting enough to keep writing about. And writing about. 🙂
