According to a recent article in The New York Times, celebrities are now hiring people to ghost write their Twitter posts. After giving it a few seconds of thought, I've decided that this would be a fantastic job for me. True, I’m a suburban mother who’s completely out of touch with Hollywood, I’ve never seen a Twitter post, much less written one, and I think it’s a little ridiculous to receive 140-character-long messages about how happy Ashton Kutcher is to drink his morning latte, but really, none of that matters much. I still think I'm perfect for the job.
In fact, here are a few sample tweets I've written on behalf of various celebrities. As you can see, I pretty much nailed 'em.
Britney Spears: Hey, y’all! It’s me, Britney! Tough choice--do I want paper or plastic??!? These Wal-Mart questions make my head hurt!! But not enough to shave it!! Ha ha ha!!!
Kate Winslet: Ugh! Out of Swiffer refills. Again!

Harrison Ford: OMG, am I handsome. So, so incredibly handsome. Even at my age. What the hell am I doing with Calista? She’s got the bodyweight of a toddler. Must rethink. OK, laters!
Miley Cyrus: I'm 16 and dating a hot 20 year-old model! And driving a Porsche! WTF? Don’t my parents realize I’m headed straight for Dana Plato city? Think, Billy Ray. Think.
