2014 - A Year In Tweets

Image for 2014 - A Year In Tweets

Our annual Viral Videos Of The Year feature is much-loved - or will be, once it's put up in a few days' time - but it fails to remind readers of the truly anarchic experience of being a film fan on social media. Genuine, 100 per cent, actually-the-actor-in-question famous folk are larking about online, and you can join in on the fun, as long as you can keep up with all of the nonsense flying around, all of the time. Here, then, are just a few of our favourite tweets from the past 12 months, and if you've got any others you'd like to suggest, let us know and we'll add them to the list.
