    I'm guessing the majority of us use twitter here, so here is a question.

    have you ever tweeted @ a celebrity or anyone just to see if you would get a reply. If so, who was it,what did you say to them and get back.

    Thread should be dedicated to Biggy.

    I don't use Twitter but one of my mates tweeted Alastair Campbell that he had a media & spin exam on his (Campbell) birthday last week and AC tweeted him back with a personal quote for it. Which was pretty cool I guess.

    If I was on there I'd probably dust off my Spanish skills and tweet Xabi Alonso that I'm a bit gay for him. Probably wouldn't get a reply though, except maybe by way of a blocking.

    @Imogen to have a Big Mac.

    She responded "sad f*****' which is nice.

    According to the Sun (some one left it on the coach. I did not buy it) this morning Paul Daniels regularly tweets some young lesbian model who is stalking him. So if anyone wants to get tweeted by Paul Daniels its clear how to go about it.

    Not quite sure who would have Paul Daniels as an idol.

    Well I am guessing that is the explanation for his current stalker.

    Thinking about it pretending to a lesbian model is probably a good first step for anyone wanting to get a response to a tweet.

    I got a pissy DM off Phil Jupitus during the RATM4XMAS thing. I tweeted Bill Bailey to RT the relevant hashtag adding "don't let Phil Jupitus take all the credit". I got a DM from Jupitus saying something like "Not trying to take credit, mate".

    Wanker.

    Shared jokes with Robert Webb and recently Lauren Laverne. Most celebs are massive disappointments, though.

    Phil Jupitus is well known for being a tit.

    I know quite a few mates who've had replies from some Man U players like Rio whilst watching matches they weren't involved in.

    Although on this occasion it's a perfectly reasonable answer.

    Phil Jupitus seems alright. Just not that funny and looks a tit with that earring.

    I was replied to by ex-WWE and current TNA star Ken Anderson. I took the piss out of TNA and he retweeted adding the word "Touché".

    That's as good as I've got.

    I chat with kind-of well-known journos (sports) quite a bit. Barry Glendenning almost always replies, for example. As is Sam Patrick Lyon from the BBC. But MAJOR, 1,000,000+ follower celebs, nah. But then again, I don't actually follow any.

    Peter Serafinowicz said I was very funny.

    Well, that something I wrote was. But still.

    Phil Jupitus is useless. If he wasn't morbidly obese no one would pay him a blind bit of attention. That's just scientific fact.

    Anyway, I got a tweet off Richard Herring in reply to a funny I made at him, which was nice.

    The more popular someone is on Twitter, the less likely I am to follow them

    Got decent retweets off William Gibson (corrected his spelling) and Cory Doctorow. Didn't result in any new followers though. :p

    say no to Eurogamer sigs
