By now the world has heard of Twitter — the short posts of 140 or fewer characters that tell your friends and followers everything — everything — that you are doing, seeing or thinking.
Ashton Kutcher and Oprah Winfrey are probably the most read Twitterers. But what might surprise you is that some folks are tweeting even if they are only characters in movies or on TV. The entire crew of the Enterprise tweets. During the election year, fake Sarah Palin and fake Barack Obama were going head to head. And even God tweets.
In this wholly random, unscientific look at Twitter accounts, we found some funny entries that'll make you fall off your chair. Or tweet your thumbs off.

Dorothy Gale (from The Wizard of Oz): "I'm wondering if I'm bored enough to go capture that spider and put it in Aunt Em's church hat." twitter.com/TheDorothyGale
And in a category unto themselves: fake washed-up actors.
