Joan Collins has become ‘addicted’ to TwitterDecember 21st, 2010 - 6:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Dec 21 (ANI): Veteran actress Joan Collins has admitted that she has become “addicted” to Twitter.
However, the star insisted she still can’t understand the shortened ‘text speak’.
The ‘Dynasty’ actress refused to join the micro-blogging website until her author sibling persuaded her she could interact with fans more directly.
Collins admits she’s now a huge fan of ‘Tweeting’, but can’t quite get to grips with the abbreviations used by the technologically savvy.
“After having initially sneered at it from afar, I’ve finally joined the Twittering population after being convinced by my sister Jackie, and I now find it fascinating and somewhat addictive,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Hello! Magazine.
“It’s a great way of getting the word out about what I’m doing directly to my fans, and it’s also an invaluable tool for correcting the vagaries of the media and setting the record straight.
“The other day I managed to put my foot in it when commiserating by email with my son Sacha, who also had the flu. I signed off with ‘LOL’, thinking it meant ‘Lots of love’, until my husband explained it actually means ‘Laugh out Loud’,” she added. (ANI)
