Posted Nov 17, 2009

Neil Patrick Harris (NPH) has joined Twitter [Twitter profile link]. Some of you know him as Doogie Howser M.D. and some of you know him as the car thief in Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle. NPH can also be spotted as Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother and as the main character on Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, an Internet musical.

On NPH’s first day on Twitter, he has gained over 67,000 followers. The number of people that are following him on Twitter is skyrocketing. Currently NPH is following Mr. Teller of Penn and Teller, Nathan Fillon, Felicia Day, Dodd Vickers, and Chris Hardwick.

Just like any new Twitter user, he seems to be struggling with the 140 character limit. His last tweet from two hours ago said “Prfkt. Thx 4 L th advyc evry1. This s a way ezr way 2 cmuNik8. Un42n8ly, itz takn me 3 hrz 2 ryt, but itz much pre4d 2 gtn cut off lyk i u.” Give him a follow if you haven’t done so yet.
