To follow my celebrity neighbor on twitter...

I mean, it feels a bit creepy seeing him post that he's just watching something on tv, and being able to hear it through the terrace house walls. OTOH, he lives his whole life in public and I'm at the start of what I imagine will be a short-lived twitter addiction.

We're not particularly close, have a friendly few words while putting out the recycling, take in packages for each other, but nothing more.

And should I tell him I'm following? Bring up a tweet in passing? Tell him my twitter ID so he follow my own banal posts about what I'm making for dinner?

You are teasing us.

no chance! I'm embarrassed enough to be following, never mind telling!

seriously not teasing. just wondering whether if it would be wierd to tell him or refer to his tweets to start a conversation. Not much chance he'll know who I am among his 50,000 followers.

What would you do?

Someone that lives in Brighton maybe? wink I'm only jumping to that conclusion from your name.

I would arrange an intervention whereby you do smthg startling and he tweets about it. Maybe run naked in his garden?

Twitter is very strange. I have a couple of actors that I follow (not sure they count as celebrities because they are a bit low profile). But because I tend to swing by twitter after facebook it gives a false sense of familiarity.

I have to restrain myself from responding to comments etc.

Would probably weird him out to know that you are following him I reckon.

Famous people who live in Brighton;

Nick Cave
Flat Slim Norman bloke married to Zoe Ball.

He'll be delighted. Anyone who's on twitter surely wants people to follow them, no?

Gaz from Supergrass (I met someone who lives in his old house in Brighton).

Actually, I've already responded to a celebrity comment (of someone I didnt know personally). Felt like I was joining in the conversation, but didnt feel wierd at all (at least not any more than everything about twitter feels wierd)

ObsidianBlackbirdMcNight Fri 30-Oct-09 13:31:55

...that guy Pete who won Big Brother...he was from Brighton...

Preston from, oh yeah, Big Brother...

I don;t actually watch BB any more but I used to...

Pikelit Fri 30-Oct-09 14:45:11

Gah! Brighton is full of luvvies and liggers. I just wish I didn't know quite so many of them...!

I'm betting we are talking Steve Coogan here.

It can't be Peter Andre because he doesn't live in a terrace house....... who is it ????? grin

Mamazonabroomstick Fri 30-Oct-09 14:49:20

it tells him that your following him.

cornsilk Fri 30-Oct-09 16:36:38

Who was it then?

BalloonSlayer Fri 30-Oct-09 16:45:24

So then, [conversationally] Why are you following him on twitter, reading about what he's watching on telly when you live next door so already know?

That's not unreasonable, it's either pointless timewasting or severe - bordering on crazed - stalkery.

mumof2rugrats Fri 30-Oct-09 19:31:09

give us a clue who your celeb neighbour is smile please

Megglevache Fri 30-Oct-09 19:42:03

You can't tell him can you.

I know people twitter so that their followers can know when they pooed etc but to know that your neighbour is following you would be a bit weird. grin

Get a shed and a telescope just to really freak him out
