Ashton and Demi's angst about Twitter TV show

The married stars both tweet that they may take a Twitter hiatus if some reports about the show prove accurate.

Monday, I was concerned that the words "Ashton" and "Kutcher" had not yet been associated with the proposed new Twitter-based reality TV show.

Today, the real Ashton Kutcher himself tweeted his concern about the show's content: "Wow I hope this isn't true. I really don't like being sold out. May have to take a twitter hiatus."

When he wrote "this," he was referring to a report from the Examiner.com that speculated whether people would be asked to, in one way or another, cyberstalk those bathed by fame.

The example the Examiner used was that on the March day on which Kutcher tweeted a photo of his wife, Demi Moore, pressing his tuxedo while wearing a bikini, might contestants be asked to use their Twittering talents to work out where these fine stars might be.

Moore, for her part, tweeted: "hope this isn't true-if it is our Twitter time may come to a quick and sad end!"

She then followed it up with a retweet to her husband and Twitter founder, Evan Williams, among others: "@lindag199: @ev wht R U thinking? Tweet! twttr coming 2 a TV near U http://TwitPWR.com/fSn/ ths is not a gd move! cc: @mrskutcher @aplusk."

The other most important person at Twitter, Biz Stone, earlier was reported to have denied that there is one official realitweet TV show.

Mashable quoted him as saying: "There is no official Twitter TV show--although if there were it would be fun to cast!"

He added that Twitter has " a lightweight, non-exclusive, agreement with the producers which helps them move forward more freely."

Lightweight? Twitter? No, no, no.
