And yet, its charms have seemed to elude Larry David. While other celebrities have embraced the 140-character microblogging service, the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star has stayed away.

As the days ticked away, Twitter remained stubbornly Larry David-less. Then, on March 11, that all changed.
"I was told by Charity Bribes that if I Tweeted they'd give 10k to the NRDC,"@LarryDavid4 tweeted. "Pay up!"
