Alec Baldwin joins Twitter

New episodes of "30 Rock" won't air for months, but you can still get your Alec Baldwin fix. The actor has just joined Twitter!

"My first tweet," Baldwin wrote on Friday. "Maybe I needed a glass of wine beforehand. I feel ... so shy."

Since becoming a member of the social networking site, the actor has racked up more than 37,500 followers and has been tweeting up a storm.

Besides giving his opinion on Gabrielle Giffords' alleged shooter Jared Loughner being deemed unfit to stand trial ("Let's see. Loaded the gun. Stalked the Congresswoman. Laying in wait"), he also shared his thoughts on music ("Rufus Wainwright singing in Watermill with his sister, Martha. Heavenly") and movies ("AMOUR FOU...YSL doc....outstanding").

Baldwin joked about a project he's attached to ("ROCK OF AGES? What's that?"), and revealed that he had gotten stranded while boating in Long Island over Memorial Day Weekend.

"Boat died in Gardiner's Bay. Called SEATOW. S—. No, really. S—," he tweeted May 28, then added, "Back on land now. I kind of liked [being] stranded."

Baldwin also wrote some words of wisdom he received about using the social networking site: "Friend told me today not to drink and tweet."

Will he heed that advice? Stay tuned...

    I realize some think it is illegal for me or anyone to say this, but Twitter is one of the most powerful forms of libel there is. So, if you believe it is illegal for me to say that, you're very wrong. But, I guarantee that what you are about to say on Twitter probably is illegal and libel. It's the greatest form of defamation on the market today. And if some had any sense they would start to sue. Twitter should be shut down.

    He is HOT ! Unfortunately I stopped watching his show because of that unbearable Morgan Something, he should be ban of tv. He is ugly,animalistic, pretentious, he thinks he is funny, quite pathetic.! For those who do not like Alec, sorry he is a very handsome man and you just should accept reality.

      I also dislike Tracy Morgan. He was on SNL and the show is like a 30 Rock flophouse. So he's there for that. If he was just acting he'd be great, but he is actually playing HIMSELF! I don't know how Alec tolerates it, as the only real actor (and sweet Jane Krakowski, who's sooo nice) and it seems like they act around him. Ah well, it wouldn't quite be the show without him... The guy has been through a lot, just had a kidney transplant and Grizz too! Grizz is a wonderful person. Everyone on 30 Rock is awesome. They are all very accessible and kind to their fans. I fellow several on Twitter that chat with me and even Facebook a couple. They are nice, real people.

    Maybe cause it's in the entertainment section since he is in the entertainment biz. If you want to read actual news, I suggest you stay in the world/local news section of CNN

    I never comment on any story but – even if you hate his politics (I don't!) Alec is one of the most interesting celebrities, not to mention one of the most talented actors.

  26. Still waiting

    Still waiting for dear Alex to move out of the country like he promised to if Bush was elected. Been how long and he's still here. I don't care if he said it if Gore, Obama or whoever was up for election... So, twitter away all you want – not interested now or ever.

      Twitter is cool in the fact you sometimes get a brief, rare glimpse at unedited genuine feelings from celebs that usually travel the safer byways of pre-fabricated personas. For more on Alec Baldwin check out my ebook "Brotherhood of the Rejected Screenplay"....15 CRAZED Years Trying to Sell Alec Baldwin "Providence".

      Of course not. Why would he? He's a classy guy. What he said on a private voice mail should never have become public. Just like you won't have wanted your very saddest worst moment played across earth to billions of people. Get over it already...
