Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die. Today’s contestant is one of my favorite actors. He was in the Usual Suspects, American Beauty and even played Lex Luthor, put your hands together for Kevin Spacey!

December 8th, 2009 11:04am: “The Eddie Izzard fundraiser at the Old Vic Theatre in London tonight at 11 is a benefit for the Old Vic Theatre”

Hey, he’s a busy movie star. He doesn’t have time to tweet all day!

December 8th, 2009 5:04pm: “Just finished show. In dressing room w/ Eddie Izzard. Tickets available to see Eddie at 11 on Old Vic stage so come down if you are around.”

Nice! Eddie’s hilarious and he fought against the BNP.

December 8th, 2009 6:16pm: “I am standing on stage at the Old Vic with Eddie Izzard who is just about to do his show. Come down for a drink.”

Are you really at the Old Vic or are you just staring at a coffee cup with the words “Old Vic” on it?

December 9th, 2:53pm: “Eddie Izzard was great last night. We raised a good amount of $ for the Old Vic. He’s the best & it was awesome having him on the OV stage”

Very cool. You know, I think you got robbed in the Superman movie. They didn’t really give Lex a chance to get really nuts. Your outburst was the best moment of the movie.

December 25th, 2009 10:51am: “Merry Christmas to all. May this day be filled with love, family, friends, gratitude & hope. We are blessed & should value our time together”

Dude, takes some time off. It’s the holidays.

January 8th, 1:35pm: “Been on holiday for a bit. Sorry not to have sent New Years wishes. Hope all had a blast & look forward to all to accomplish this year.”

I like you in The Men Who Stare At Goats. You’ve been playing a lot of evil guys in your movies recently. I guess they’re kind of the best characters really. More flawed. More fun to act.

January 16th, 10:12pm: “Been traveling; LA to visit on set of Social Network, as Trigger Street is producing; then to NY to see 2nd preview of As You Like It at BAM”

Busy, busy. Yeah, I used Trigger Street for a while. Haven’t had time to get back there. Interesting site for screenwriters.

January 16th, 10:13pm: “Finally back to London today to see preview of 6 Degrees of Separation at OV. What a crazy life! Rock on Twitter gang.”

Wait, how did you go from NYC to London in less than a minute?

January 28th, 2:10am: “FYI – as some of you know I have been in China filming & unable to access FB & Twitter. So to update I’m having @danabrunetti post for me.”

Nice! Dedication to the Twitter. Shows initiative, Kev.

February 3rd, 2:34am: “China is an experience. Been filming 2 wks. Daniel Wu, great actor & humble. Crew very good & enjoying the time. Hope all are well. #FB”

Oh, man. No Facebook either? C’mon, Kev, I could really use some help for my superhero team in Superhero City.

February 7th, 5:30am: “Film in China is INSEPARABLE. Directed by Dayyan Eg. He did a short BUS 44, that won a bunch of awards. No crazy food for me. Smiles -”

What would the Chinese consider “crazy food”, I wonder. Rocks?

February 10th, 10:08pm: “The new Six Degrees of Separation trailer is now uploaded to YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqV_dLiD3nY”

You actors love that live theater. You can’t get enough of it. It’s like cake to a fat man for you.

March 5th, 5:22am: “Apply now for the brilliant US/UK Exchange with the Old Vic. Email OVNV@oldvictheatre.com for info Application close 10th Mar”

Interesting. Kevin’s tweets are spaced far apart, yet he went to the trouble to keeping access to his twitter while in China. Hmm, was the novelty still new when you left, I wonder.

March 18th, 5:04pm: “Too true. I have been traveling across the globe. Hope all Tweeters are good. Tanks for all the cool messages. Peace out -”

13 days later and that sounds like he’s just continuing the conversation. Must be confusing with all the people that follow him.

March 24th, 1:55pm: “A new show opens next week in our Old Vic Tunnels. Go to: www.yournationlovesyou.com for ticket info & show times. ?FB”

Tunnels? Is the cast made up of CHUDs?

March 29th, 6:00am: “Great to hang w/Kate Moss last wk but not sure where stories of her treading boards at the Old Vic came from. Not a grain of truth in it!”

I think that’s probably one of the nicer rumors about Kate Moss.

April 4th, 7:24am: “Happy Easter. Enjoy time with family & friends – unless u have to work. All should be grateful to those who work if u are free! Peace”

You always remember Twitter on the holidays. It’s like we’re family now.

April 5th, 8:24am: “I support Paul McCartney’s Meat Free Mondays. RT”

I’m sorry, Kev. I can’t go more than 16 hours without a hamburger. Mmmm, think I’ll have one now. *munch*munch*munch*. Mmmm.

Okay, let’s rate Kevin’s tweets. For Style, I give him an 8, he’s pretty low key so 6 for Insanity and although his updates are far apart, he seems pretty dedicated, so 7. That’s an overall score of 7. Not bad. He’s good to follow because he won’t clog up your Twitter with nonsense. Quality, not quantity. And if you have a suggestion for Twitter in Focus, email us here.
