James Callis on Twitter: Addendum.

I'm getting a lot of searches about this, so just to reiterate: James Callis IS on Twitter, his name is @jamescallis. It's not officially verified I but it's him. He announced it on his personal Facebook and the Unofficial James Callis website. That may be as official as you're going to get.

If it seems weird to you, it's just because JAMES CALLIS IS WEIRD*. He's not like Tricia Helfer; he won't tweet straightfoward observations about his day. He will quote song lyrics, say cryptic things that may be impossible to decipher, and tell goofy schoolboy jokes. Also, he abuses dashes, doesn't always type things right, and over-capitalizes. I dunno what's up with that, but it's adorable.

If you want a sample of his style, read his messages to fans from before. Totally consistent with what he writes on Twitter.

James is a laid back, casual guy. He can be funny and silly or heartfelt and shocked at tragic world events. He's fun to follow. Just don't expect a rock star.

* and I mean that in the very nicest possible way

He's actually the only celebrity I can follow on Twitter just because he doesn't tweet the usual boring stuff. There's not a trace of him being aware of his audience and trying to talk to them or please them or anything like that. It's refreshing!

Yeah, it's just who he is. That's what I really like about James: he is the same person in interviews, FB and Twitter. He doesn't put on a persona.

Of course, I don't know what he's like with his friends and family, so maybe it actually is a persona of sorts? Either way, it seems genuine and I enjoy it.
