Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Send First Twitter Messages
Twilight's twosome tweets!
New Moon costars Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart posted a series of 140-character messages on the microblogging site Monday to thank fans for supporting their film, which earned a whopping $140 million in its first three days.
Pattinson, 23, was the first star to post on Summit Entertainment's official Twilight Twitter page, writing "Thank you for making NEW MOON #1. It's very exciting to be a part of something embraced by so many people. I hope you are looking forward to ECLIPSE as much as I am."
His costar -- and rumored real-life love interest -- followed suit, with three consecutive postings, which were read by Summit's 162,700 followers.
"You all have proven you're the most amazing fans in the world once again," the 19-year-old actress wrote, before echoing Pattinson's appreciative sentiments about making the movie tops at the box office.
"Yes, I twittered," Stewart confirmed. "Or twitted..tweeted? I dunno, but thank you sooo much anyway..!"
The second installment in the Twilight film franchise, New Moon grossed a stellar $140.7 million during its first weekend in theaters, earning $72.7 million on its Friday opening day alone. Its follow-up film, Eclipse, will hit theaters in June.
