Twitter, the social networking monster that it is has served quite a few purposes in Hollywood. It's made the publicist's job that much more difficult, as celebs have become addicted to the rush of having their thoughts and feelings made readily available for fans. Celebrity couples in particular are having a grand time professing their undying love (and everything else) on Twitter. But as the number of divorces and splits revs up in Hollywood, the Twitter-happy might want to reevaluate their "Tweet-astic" enthusiasm.
The most recent couple to make a gooey Twitter declaration is rocker Pink and her hubby, Carey Hart.
"I love you honey cakes…" These are the words Pink spewed on the social network for all to see. We might have been completely repulsed had she not prefaced the remark by playfully threatening to kill her husband. For a while there, we were worried about these two (celebrating their 6th anniversary) who temporarily split in 2008. In light of the fact that they were thisssclose to divorce, they probably have a right to express their sentiments.
Other couples haven't been so lucky---the ones who may look back upon their feverish Twitter activity and regret their insufferable collection of online transcripts.
Mark Ballas and Pia Toscano were reality TV's most unlikely pair. The "Dancing with the Stars" pro and the "American Idol" contestant quietly started dating in the spring of 2011. Mark even dropped the L-word (kind of) on in a congratulatory Tweet to Pia in May. The profession of love was more than likely sincere at the time. But they'd barely made it into 2012 before rumors of their split started to circulate. Sort of gives us second thoughts.
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are two more examples; This Twitter-happy pair spent a great deal of time waxing poetic on love, life, and specifically, their fantastic love life. The "Punk'd" star even "punked" his wife into a candid booty shot, as she was bending over in her underwear. Some might say this former pair indulged in some over-sharing.
But when it comes to over-sharing, there are perhaps no two who indulged more than Jesse James and Kat Von D. The infamous tattooed stars--on their quest to prove their unbreakable bond to the world---used Twitter as their vehicle of choice. The two flew messages back and forth at breakneck speed-so much so, that we wondered when they had time to film their reality shows. When all was said and done, Kat realized that their frequent sweet tweets were ultimately in vain.
Will other amorous couples start keeping their sweet nothings to themselves? It's possible. But as long as Twitter continues to indulge our primitive desire for instant gratification, it's likely that there's much more to come. Stay tuned.
