Talk to him.
Or at least that's what Robert Downey Jr. encouraged the twitterverse to do this afternoon in his first-ever tweet today, which came with a photo of the Iron Man star holding a sign bearing his easy-to-remember, verified Twitter handle.
"Talk to me, Twitter," he wrote after setting up his account with a self-assured bio reading, "You know who I am."
And with that, let the epic wordplay begin! (Just so you know, RDJ, we're expecting a lot from you.)
While The Avengers and two Iron Man sequels certainly didn't seem miss the boost from a star with a wider social media presence, Downey does have a new, somewhat smaller film coming out soon—and what movie couldn't use a box-office bump these days?!
Mission accomplished. Less than two hours ago, Downey had 18,000 followers, not too shabby for a beginner.
Right this second, he has 324,000 (and will surely have more by the time you check in on him).
"@Jon_Favreau thx for the intro," Downey tweeted back, obviously already adept at how the whole thing works.
