Sulu Tweets

I just got the following Twitter message from the actor George Takei, or as they say on Twitter @Georgetakei :

"Oh, Myyyy!!! Thank you for following me on "The Twitter." I'm new to all this so be sure to "retweet" me, and hard!"

Takei is one of those actors whose voice is so distinctive that I can hear it even in what he writes. My goodness, he sounds just like the robot from the Craig Ferguson show. Or is that the other way around? 

Automated messages aren't generally a big deal to me, but as a Star Trek fan from way back I have to admit this one gave me a bit of a thrill.

I didn't have to think about it -- I already got it!

That was a large part of what made me think of Craig Ferguson's robot (which really does sound a lot like Takei) -- it's always saying stuff like that.

I love his humor, but I am envious as I never got a DM from him for following him, boo!

Well, this all leaves me a little freaked out -- I'd assumed everyone who follows him on Twitter got the same message.

Everyone I know seems to have gotten a fun DM from him but me!

I can only hope he started the auto DM program after I followed him *shrug* still makes me envious

I'm sure that's what happened. At least he didn't snub you on purpose!

I ADORE him. Him and his husband Brad Altman are one of the cutest couples EVER. <3

I've never actually seen his husband, so I'll have to take your word for it. Have you ever read Takei's book about his experiences during WW2 and Star Trek? Fascinating stuff.

Never read it. Sounds interesting!

It really is. However, I believe it came out before he did, and I don't recall the relationship aspects of his life being covered in any great detail.

I'd assumed everyone who follows him on Twitter gets that message automatically, but one of my Facebook friends says they never got it -- so now I don't know what to think.

I don't like twitter really but i DO follow him and have a whole new respect for Mr. Takei (and I didn't get this tweet, is sad now)

Maybe the tweet message is by lottery? :-)
