Robert Downey Jr. Joins Twitter, Gains Nearly 1 Million Followers

Robert Downey Jr. is on Twitter but you probably already know that. I mean, after all, he already has close to 1 million followers.

The actor joined the social network less than 24 hours ago and has only sent out a couple of tweets. But that isn’t hurting his following. The actor’s follow count currently sits at 954,000. At this rate, he should be well over 1 million by the time the weekend is over.

He has quite a way to go to catch the people at the top (Katy Perry and Justin Bieber both have more than 50 million followers) but his account is already pretty entertaining.

After sending out a simple verification message on Twitter…

… he posted a little joke about how it was difficult to express any real thought on the  social network.

That tweet, by the way, was retweeted more than 35,000 times and was favorited more than 48,000 times. Of course, many actors have a PR team to handle their accounts and it’s unclear if Robert Downey Jr. is actually the one doing the thumb work. If it is him, he’s doing a pretty great job so far.
