Even Simon Cowell jumped on the Social media run.
The X Factor creator and judge Simon Cowell is the latest celebrity to join Twitter. He has only been on since Wednesday night and sent out six tweets, but has already racked up over 190,000 followers.
In just ten hours, Cowell already had over 150,000 followers, noted The Press Association.
“It’s official, I know it’s taken a while. It’s really me! We’re live in 10 minutes. I’ll keep you posted. Lots of love #iamsimon,” Cowell wrote to announce his arrival.
Immediately following that, he criticized fellow X Factor judge L,A. Reid’s comments about a couple of contestants. “@la_reid is mad That’s not rock!” he wrote.
“Drew was amazing. The girls @PaulaAbdul and @NicoleScherzy are threatened by her,” he wrote, taking a shot and Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, his other fellow judges.
He decided to take a shot at all three at once, happily writing, “I love being on twitter. Thank you for allowing me to beat the other 3 in the popularity poll. Paula looked like she’d sucked on a lemon!”
He already started a Twitter battle with CNN host Piers Morgan, who just announced that he is no longer going to be a judge on America’s Got Talent, one of Cowell’s productions. It started when Morgan tweeted, “At last! Bring. It. On. love #iampiers RT @SimonCowell It’s official, I know it’s taken a while. It’s really me! love #iamsimon.”
Cowell responded with “@piersmorgan look up the word deluded in your dictionary.” Morgan then knocked off two digs at Cowell in a row, first writing, “Save your breath @SimonCowell – nobody’s watching X Factor, my show’s about to start #CNN @PiersTonight.” An hour later, Morgan added. “Comes before ‘demolished’ – ironically what I’ll do to you on here RT@SimonCowell: @piersmorgan look up the word deluded in your dictionary.”
It seems only fair that Cowell should finally jump on the Twitter bandwagon, considering that Fox is attempting to use Twitter as a way for fans of The X Factor to vote for their favorite contestant. Twitter even created a dedicated page to explain how people can use the service to vote, Entertainment Weekly noted.
