OMGICU Convinces Tracy Morgan To Join Twitter

Posted Oct 8, 2009

OMGICU is a website where users report what celebrities that they have spotted are doing. Some examples include Gerard Butler eating a Japanese dinner with Bjork and Mischa Barton walking into Guggenheim. Tracy Morgan was one of the most spotted celebrities, so OMGICU started a new website called where the goal was to make Tracy Morgan join Twitter. And it worked. Tracy Morgan joined Twitter today.

OMGICU was founded by Hugh Dornbush and he said that Morgan ?is someone who just really resonates with people, and his sense of humor and his sensibilities are so well-suited to the medium,? in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. ?Once you put it on their radar, it?s been pretty easy to find people who say, ?I would rather be living in a world where Tracy Morgan is sharing his day to day life with us.??

Dornbush dropped out of the New York University Stern School of Business to start OMGICU and plans to expand the service in Los Angeles. OMGICU started about 15 months ago. Another reason why Dornbush started was because some of Tracy Morgan’s celebrity spottings on OMGICU were quite odd and funny.

For example, one user spotted “Tracy Morgan driving a Yellow Lamborghini with a blond woman listening to Sade.” Another user reported “tracy morgain [sic] is walking around soho eating blueberries looking confused.”

Tracy Morgan was asked by his fans to join Twitter and he has responded by joining the microblogging service. Just as we expected, Morgan’s tweets are extremely entertaining. Below are some of the tweets he sent out since joining:
