This. Is. Not. A. Drill. Tommy Wiseau has joined Twitter. Y’know, the place where you have to carefully construct your wittiest sentiments in a brief 280-character limit.
So who better to be a part of the social network than the man who wrote the line “Chicken, Peter, you’re just a little chicken. Cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep, cheep”?
In a world where Donald Trump is posting on Twitter like a seven-year-old trolling others on Club Penguin at 9:26PM on a school night, there’s nothing finer than sitting back and enjoying Tommy let loose on the account.
Don’t believe me? Luckily for you, I had the honour of scrolling through his feed and I’ve collected his finest moments. And if you don’t like them, leave your stupid comments in your pocket!
My first Tweet consisted of something about needing new underwear. Tommy’s was a recorded stream of him writing the Tweet. (And even had the hashtag #FirstTweet. He’s an icon.)
The fact that Tommy is still quoting The Room 14 years after its release kinda makes him my favourite human. I’m a simple man – I see a The Room quote, and I click RT.
Give Tommy credit-where-credit’s due… The Disaster Artist opened to incredible critical acclaim, generating 94% on Rotten Tomatoes. The Room, erm, didn’t fair quite as well. Yet he knows it’s still the best god damn film ever made.
Star Wars have the likes of John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Harrison Ford and Lupita Nyong’o in their roster, but are any of them as big as Tommy Wiseau? Simple answer: no. That’s why he knows they want to contact him; not the other way around.
Finally, this. Just this video… And yet it’s still a better story than Twilight.
