Celebrities can't get enough of Twitter

Celebrities seem to be taking over Twitter at the moment. In the past week we've seen Stephen Fry, Jonathan Ross and Phillip Schofield mention the micro blogging service on UK national TV.

Twitter, which allows you to send 140 character messages out to all that follow your updates, has exploded in popularity and increased traffic to its site by nearly 1000%.

It's clear the service is growing in popularity and could soon rival the likes of Facebook's own status updates. Celebrities have adopted the service as a means to interact with the public and find answers to questions quickly whilst on the move. I personally use Twitter to follow interesting people in the technology world, you can follow me here and I always follow people back.

We thought we'd put a small list together of the top celebrity Twitter accounts out there at the moment:
