Sean Parker graces Twitter with apology to Zuckerberg

The man who, according to "The Social Network," made Mark Zuckerberg the person he is, decides to leap onto Twitter. His first few characters are an apology to Zuckerberg.

Perhaps, like me, you tend to think of these people as characters in a movie.

So please allow me to reveal that Justin Timberlake is now on Twitter and his first 140 (or less)-character utterance has been to seek forgiveness from Jesse Eisenberg.

Yes, Sean Parker, he who seems to have played significant roles in Napster and Facebook, to say nothing of the Timberlake-Eisenberg vehicle "The Social Network," has decided to forsake his past and tweet.

His first short, deep thought reads like this: "Sorry Zuck, I had to do it eventually. (Actually @scooterbraun made me do it.)"

The Scooterbraun mentioned is, indeed, someone who says (on Twitter, naturally) that he smiles a lot. Oddly, he's a talent manager.

TechCrunch explains that Parker still posts lengthily on Zuckerberg's Facebook page. Which, again oddly, I had missed entirely.

I had heard, though, that Parker intends to step into a vast new world, one whose steps few have yet dared to climb: yes, he's starting a blog.

It's lovely when some of these oldy-worldy entities like blogs and Twitter are now attracting those whom many associate more often with glamor and, um, Mila Kunis.
