There are so many good causes out there today, and I have so little time to give to them. However, I think I can squeeze in this little commitment: Join the campaign to get Tracy Morgan on Twitter. As twacy.org bemoans: “Today in America, celebrities are tweeting the mundane details of their lives, yet millions of children will go to bed without knowing everything Tracy Morgan has done.” Whether or not that’s for the best, I would agree with this person that few stars fit better into—and would delight more in— the 140-character-or-less format than the 30 Rock crackup who’s full of absurd, off-the-cuff gems, onscreen and off. Go ahead and imagine the sweet tweets that could flow from the fingers of the man who has delivered such lines as “Live every week like it’s Shark Week” or “
I am the face of post-racial America. Deal with it, Cate Blanchett!
” While we wait to see if this campaign is successful, check out Morgan’s edgy greeting cards, or “Me-Cards,” which help promote his memoir I Am the New Black, which hits bookstores on Oct. 20. So, what do you say, PopWatchers? Is this cause just—or just silly? And who else would you like to see on Twitter?
