Do You Follow Any TV Characters on Twitter?

Celebrities who use Twitter — and who don't — have been a hot topic for a while. But what about characters who tweet?

I first noticed the phenomenon of TV characters twittering (er, actual people twittering as TV characters) when it caused a little ruckus during the last season of Mad Men. AMC initially protested the idea of fans twittering as Don Draper or Roger Sterling but eventually let the twittering continue — and even interviewed the fan who tweets as Peggy Olson after she won a Shorty Award.

In addition to the Mad Men crew, I follow Coach Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights and Rachel Berry from Glee. I'm not sure who runs those Twitter feeds (my guess is that Rachel's is done by Fox, while Coach's is a fan), but regardless, it's fun to see people try to channel what the characters would say on Twitter — kind of like fan fiction 2.0. What about you?

I follow Coach T, Matt and Julie from FNL – the only fictional characters I follow. But to make this less weird, I also follow the REAL Nathan Fillion, Alyson Hannigan, Sarah Silverman, Jason Segel, Ethan Sulpee and Leighton Meester.

i did, but it's too boring and they usually just do promotion, which i find annoying.

No, following the character's doesn't bring me much interest. I do follow some celebs/comedians, like Jim Gaffigan, Kevin Nealon and Stephen Colbert.

It's hard to follow just one, once you followed one then you would want to do on some favorites and it never ends. We've got only 24/7.

Yeah, I follow the characters from Bones. There are a lot of them, but it's pretty hilarious.
