It’s a brave new social media-saturated world out there for celebrities, and while for some of them it is tinged with more than a hint of bad PR-waiting to happen, for most it is a golden opportunity to have a two way mutually-beneficial conversation with fans.

Everyone walks away happy, and as the good people of keep reminding us in their Photo of the Day section, we also end up with the sort of wonderfully candid photos and information releases that would never have happened in days gone by.

You know, like, 2006.

Yep that long ago.

So in the interests of turning the conversation into an ongoing joyous babble of voices, here are some tweeted pics that caught my eye …


I am not alone in loving “The Big Bang Theory” with the show building its audience significantly in its sixth season to the point where it was watched recently by a record-breaking 17.39 million people in the USA (episode: “The 43 Pecularity”). It makes sense – its intelligently written, consistently funny, with a cast of distinctive characters you want to spend time with. One of them is Howard Wolowitz (Simon Helberg) who spent the first part of this season in space separated from new wife Bernadette (Melissa Rauch). in this photo he is pictured with the real Howard Wolowitz, good friend of the co-creator of “The Big Bang Theory” Bill Prady (@billprady). Tweeted Prady: ““For the record, the only thing my friend Howard Wolowitz shares with the character is his name. Not his personality.” (source:


To my unending frustration, “Glee” is one of those shows this year that has fallen through the cracks in my time-poor viewing schedule. While I plan to catch up over the Christmas break – DVD box sets at the ready! – in the meantime I am keeping track of what’s going on in season 4 when it seems all the established couples have gone their separate ways. But could Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Brittany (Heather Morris) be about to tie the knot? Doubtful but who can say for sure? Certainly not series co-creator Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) who coyly tweeted this leading pic along with the words: ““The Wedding Of The Year.” (source:


Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) has appeared in all sorts of shows such as “King of Queens”, “Community” and “Bored to Death”, but he clearly has a future in costume design should the acting bug ever desert him. Here he pictured as Dr Octopus ready to hit the Halloween trail with the cutest Spider-person ever! He tweeted: ““Mission accomplished. With a LOT of help from @donttrythis (MYTHBUSTERS’ Adam Savage). #Halloween #doctorockapus” (source:


Am I insanely excited that “Arrested Development” is filming new episodes due out on Netflix next year? Yes indeedy! So this pic of late night TV show host Conan O’Brien (@ConanOBrien) from the set of the show is a wonderful peek, and yes just the tiniest of peeks into what may be. Let our imaginations run riot! Tweeted O’Brien: “Here’s the 1st official photo from the new Arrested Development on @Netflix. Spoiler alert: I’m an amazing actor.” (source:


I will admit it – I have yet to sample the delights of “Covert Affairs” due to the huge viewing workload I already have but this photo of easy-on-the-eye (not to objectify him of course but still …) series star, Christopher Gorham (@chrisgorham), late of “Ugly Betty” among other shows, who plays Auggie Anderson on the hit show, may just encourage me to get those box sets into my DVD player quick smart! Tweeted Gorham back in late October: “Proper Exit. Last day of Covert Affairs S3 in Toronto!”


Thanks once again to the wonderful people at, who continue to find and curate these great photos from the unending stream coursing through the Twitterverse.
