They're famous! They tweet! And they make me laugh, cry, and @reply! Here's a roundup of the very latest in celebrity-tweet goodness.
My new addiction is Tom Hanks' on-location tweets as he films Larry Crowne. I don't know what it is -- his "regular-guy" attitude? Seeing the behind-the-scenes secrets of movies? A weird love of celeb typos? Here, the tweet sends us to this decidedly un-glam pic. Love it!
Lisa Rinna re-tweeted an insulting tweet -- I guess in an effort to shame the OT (original tweeter) -- and spent the rest of the morning tweeting about cyberbullying, until someone tweeted that maybe if she spent less time on Twitter and more time doing something else, people wouldn't be able to tweet fun at her.

Dueling tweets of former child actor moms alert! While Soleil Moon Frye (aka Punky Brewster) is having lunch with her daughter ...

And Solange Knowles (sister of Beyonce) reports a bizarre dream, eerily reminiscent of that one episode of The Cosby Show when Cliff eats a sausage hoagie:
And finally, this might be the kind of thing that only I find funny, but comic and Daily Show alum Mo Rocca was complaining, via tweet, that he couldn't find a hairbrush that was also a microphone, and then had this to say. I'm NOT going to spend the weekend as the only person with this song running through my head, so enjoy:
