Shaq's tweets are OK, but Lily Allen's are sexier

Notable athletes use Twitter and so do some famous musicians. Pitchforkmedia.com has compiled sample tweets from the likes of Coldplay and Trent Reznor.

Forget Shaquille O'Neal. If I'm going to get into celeb tweets, I'd rather read singer Lily Allen's riff about sexual etiquette.

Much was made when O'Neal, the hulking basketball star, started posting comments on Twitter. Now, there's a sample of tweets from famous musicians at Pitchforkmedia.com. The music blog has listed some of the more well-known artists and a sample of their tweets.

Pitchfork also makes a guess at whether the tweets were written by artists or by some functionary.

Here's a sample allegedly from The Long Winters' John Roderick: "It's not that I don't want to hang out with you because I'm some 'big-shot rock star'. It's because I'm a guy who likes to have a good time."

Some of the other artists tweeting are Ghostface Killah, Coldplay, Sonic Youth, and Erykah Badu

Funny stuff. Read the story here.
