Seven TV Stars I'd Love To See on Twitter

Tina FeyAh, Twitter. That web site with the funny name that for many people has suddenly become as vital as e-mail and instant messaging. Even celebrities are into it, and while there are many TV stars who on it, there are even more who aren't but should be. After the jump, my list of the seven I'd follow forever.

You'll notice a trend with the list: they're all funny people. That seems to be the thing that works best on Twitter.

1. Tina Fey. Can you imagine Fey on Twitter? That would be the online equivalent of "Must-See TV." She actually got the @tinafey account that someone else had grabbed, but she hasn't done anything with it. And, alas, she's not going to. In a recent interview with Esquire, Fey said that doing Twitter would be a "busman's holiday," and just more writing she'd have to do. Oh well. We still have Judah Friedlander (@JudahWorldChamp) and the official '30 Rock' Twitter account (@nbc30rock).

Demetri Martin2. Demetri Martin. The host of 'Important Things with Demetri Martin' is one of the kings of observational, brainy humor, and Twitter is perfect for stuff like that.

There's an official Twitter account for his show (@itwdm), but Martin is not on Twitter himself (regardless of people who have claimed to be him in the past).

3. Jerry Seinfeld. Like Martin, Seinfeld is great at observational humor too. One of the reasons he'd be funny is that he wouldn't take Twitter too seriously. That would be funny. Funnier than 'The Marriage Ref' that's for sure.

4. Jon Stewart. I'd like to see Stewart on Twitter because, well, he's probably the type of person who hates Twitter (and Facebook) and it would be funny to see his take on all of it.

His buddy Stephen Colbert is on Twitter though (@StephenAtHome -- that's the real account, don't be taken in by others), so maybe he can convince Stewart to do it.

Amy Sedaris5. Amy Sedaris. Maybe I'm just interested in seeing celebrities on Twitter who would never do Twitter. Sedaris' comedy is...different, to say the least. The life she leads and the way she looks at things would just make for really funny reading. Hey, even if she wanted to tweet as Jerri Blank that would be enough. But I also want to her her observations and get cooking and entertaining and crafts tips too.

She has a new book coming out later this year called Simple Times, so maybe she can tweet to promote that.

6. David Letterman. He's done some joke tweeting on his show, but he's just doing it as a bit on the show and has no interest in Twitter at all. Which means he'd be the perfect person for it.

Bruce Campbell7. Bruce Campbell. I'm surprised he's not on Twitter already, since he's always been great with fans. Maybe someday. In the meantime, you can follow his costar, Jeffrey Donovan (@Jeffrey_Donovan).
