You know how you tinker endlessly with your resume to make sure it all fits on one page? Well celebrities seem to put the same care into the “bio” on their Twitter page. In that section, they’ve got 160 characters to say something interesting, informative or clever. Here’s how a few of them use that limited “bio” space.
Notorious Twitterer, John Mayer (@johncymayer) (Jennifer Aniston reportedly left him because he said he had no time for her even though he had plenty of time to Tweet), gives a nod to the fine folks at Subway:
Name: John Mayer
Bio: Recording/Sandwich Artist
Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk), also the known as the guy who was on Twitter WAY before you were, keeps it vague.
Name: ashton kutcher
Bio: I make stuff, actually I make up stuff, stories mostly, collaborations of thoughts, dreams, and actions. Thats me.
Kevin Spacey (@KevinSpacey), who famously Tweeted during an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, takes the false modesty tack with his Twitter bio.
Name: Kevin Spacey
Location: London - NYC - LA
Bio Former shoe salesman now making a go at film and theater. Wish me luck...
Lindsay Lohan’s on-again, off-again girlfriend, Samantha Ronson (@samantharonson), doesn’t seem to have much sympathy for the unemployed.
Name: samantha ronson
Location: Los Angeles
Bio: Don't be mad, UPS is hiring.
It’s not entirely clear what Paris Hilton (@babygirlparis)is referring to in her Twitter bio. Perhaps its her rumored size 11 feet.
Name: Paris Hilton
Location: ÜT: 25.222988,55.357721
The Twitter bio for Tyra Banks (@tyrabanks) raises all kinds of questions, not the least of which is: would she really eat a dirty shoe if it was dipped in BBQ sauce?
Name: Tyra Banks
Location: Fiercetown, USA
Bio: Business woman by day, SMIZE-r by night. Favs: ANYTHING in BBQ sauce, the color yellow & perfecting H2T poses in the mirror.
Onetime America’s Next Top Model winner and Vh1 Surreal Life star, Adrianne Curry (@adriannecurry) keeps it inspirational.

As for Courtney Love (@courtneylover79), well, let’s just say fans and foes alike probably agree with the classification in her Twitter bio.

And, the award for best Twitter bio, hands down, goes to: Barbra Streisand (@barbrastreisand).
