The 'Vampire Diaries' Cast Talks Twitter & Who Convinced Paul Wesley to Tweet (VIDEO)

'The Vampire Diaries' finally returns this week (Thurs., April 7, 8PM ET on The CW), but if you're like me, you've been keeping up with the cast on Twitter over this way too long hiatus.

Since there's been little news lately about what's coming next -- save the arrival of Klaus, who'll be played by Joseph Morgan -- it was huge news when Stefan Salvatore himself, Paul Wesley, finally joined Twitter after years of refusing.

The Vampire Diaries

We hit the 'Vampire Diaries' set in Atlanta to catch up with Paul and costars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig, Kat Graham, Steven McQueen, Matt Davis and Sara Canning. They all opened up about who they follow on Twitter and decided who gets credit for finally getting Paul to tweet.



"I think the Dalai Lama came to set and explained to Paul that it was for charitable purposes that he had to be on Twitter," Ian said. "I mean, obviously aliens have invaded his mind," Kat joked. "I was shocked, I didn't believe him, and then he started following me," said Nina. "I give him sh-- about it all the time."

Then Zach chimed in about what it would take to get the last of the cast's Twitter hold-outs, Steven McQueen, to join, but Steven doesn't seem so convinced: "I personally don't really understand what Twitter is."

Yeah, this is pretty much the cast at their most adorable, and they didn't stop at 140 characters. There's also Ian's hilarious impersonation of Arnold Schwarzenegger, confessions about random people they follow and Kat's shocked reaction to finding out about Paul tweeting. (Guess they aren't following each other yet ...)

So fans, how excited are you for the 'TVD' return? And if you don't already follow the cast on Twitter, will you now? Sound off in the comments.

I still like to call him #NoTwitterPaul who was encouraged (bullied) until he saw the light (caved).

I LOVE the twitter love from the TVD cast, it is so engaging and builds excitement for the show. Come on McQueen join the dark side! It helps with job security, JS...
