Twitter, Be Cool! Samuel L. Jackson Starts Tweeting

Earlier this week, bad mother shut-yo-mouth Samuel L. Jackson made his Twitter debut with three yfrog pics and a tweet that did not disappoint— “Can-a muh fukkasay f*ck on here?”  A word that I’m sure Samuel L. Jackson will be tweeting quite a bit, as it has become something of a catchphrase for him.  But really, isn’t that what fans expect of him?

When @SamuelLJackson hit Twitter on Tuesday a lot of people thought it was a fake account, but it was quickly verified and the followers started coming.  So far he’s got 138,466 followers, and this number is growing as he talks about the “gnats in my muthafukkin’ dressing room,” his upcoming movie The Avengers, and reaches out to George Lopez, Randy Jackson, Magic Johnson and other celebrities, asking them to “follow a Brutha.”

Along with joining Twitter, Jackson also put out a Funny Or Die video, ‘Samuel L. Jackson Joins Twitter’, in which he talks about how he’s looking for work as an actor.  Jackson tweeted the video out with the caption, “Still job hunting…”  The video has been viewed just over 20,000 views so far.
