Steve Martin

Here's a little history lesson for you. This quote that legendary actor Steve Martin tweeted is actually, "Able was I ere I saw Elba." It's a palindrome, which means if you were to read the sentence from right to left instead of left to right, it would say the same thing. The palindrome was created as something Napoleon Bonaparte might've said when he was exiled to the Island of Elsa.

So, maybe Martin was exiled to an island off of L.A. called Bubba? Or perhaps it was an auto correct? Those things happen, you know. Your guess is as good as ours.

The rest of today's tweets bring you an array of topics from the stars about parenting, food, and Nickleback. Oh, and if you haven't already heard, it's Friday the 13th. Maybe Martin's Bubba is a ghost that's haunting him? Hey, it's possible. Don't doubt Friday the 13th and learn the hard way about its power like Damon Lindelof did in April 13, 2012's Twitter-Wood. See what we mean after the jump. TGIF!

Fast FiveTwo days have passed since the world learned that Osama bin Laden has been killed, but the conversation rages on within the Hollywood community -- on Twitter, at least. One star gave some thoughts to the terrorist leader's final regrets, while another comedian wants to deploy the team that killed bin Laden on a different but no less dangerous mission.

Meanwhile, the Tony nominations were announced and "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's "The Book of Mormon" leads the pack, making one filmmaker a very happy camper. And it turns out that "Fast Five" is capable of more than making money -- it also kills boredom.

Fast FiveDespite all odds (and a few predictions on the Mayan Calendar), "Fast Five" is finally here! The fifth installment in the street racing franchise just opened and already broke the record for highest-grossing Universal picture with a midnight release. While the critics have given it mixed reviews, one star thinks it might be the next "Citizen Kane."

Meanwhile, the highly anticipated summer comedy "Bridesmaids" screened last night and the tweets are alive with commotion. We can't remember the last time an all-female comedy has gotten so much buzz but it's understandable when you get a load of the egregiously talented cast. Some well-respected actors and comedians were in the audience last night and somehow, someway, they got us even more excited.

And we've got some of the funniest things Hollywood tweeted about the beautiful wedding most Americans slept through.

Bill and TedIt's Monday, which means the internet is basking in the glow of yesterday's brand new episode of "Game of Thrones." If you went anywhere near a computer in the past 24 hours, you'd know that everybody had something to say about the HBO epic, but we found some celebrity commentary that was a wee-bit outside of the mainstream perspective.

Meanwhile, "Water For Elephants" opened in a strong third place at this weekend's box office, but has garnered mixed reviews. While Hollywood's fickle critics are split, the celebrity consensus is overwhelmingly positive, at least with a sample size of two.

And you know how we told you that a "Bill and Ted 3" script was just weeks away from completion? Turns out that it's already done, and it's in co-star Alex Winter's hands. Station!

Jackie ChanReports of Jackie Chan's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Despite the fact that "RIP Jackie Chan" has been a trending topic on Twitter all day, the coast is thankfully clear for one of our favorite martial arts action stars of all time.

"He did not suffer a heart attack and die, as was reported on many social networking sites and in online news reports," reports Chan's official Twitter feed. "Jackie is fine and is busy preparing for the filming of his next movie."

With that bit of business out of the way, it's time to see what else is going on in Twitter-Wood. After the jump, Steve Martin's quest against the Bronx Zoo Cobra continues while Jon Favreau offers a tantalizing tease at his WonderCon plans!

Black SwanIt was appropriate that for the last Twitter-Wood update of 2010, the feed included plenty of examples of what made the year great. "Black Swan" reactions continued to appear, while Michael Ian Black and Brody Stevens wished horrible fates upon people for the new year and Seth MacFarlane proposed a New Year's resolution for anyone who hasn't picked one yet.

Ice-T sounded off with his feelings about the police, as he apparently got pulled over this week. His rant, as well as Jeremy Piven's fear of saunas and Anna Kendrick's love for the show "Misfits" can be found down below.

Natalie PortmanLots of posters in the Twitter-Wood feed seemed to be shocked about one thing or another today, whether it was Michael Ian Black reacting to news of Natalie Portman's pregnancy or David Spade commenting on Amber Portwood's domestic battery charge.

Meanwhile, Paul Feig didn't seem shocked about his problems flying out of JFK yesterday so much as he was concerned with figuring out alternative means to get to London, Judd Apatow was afraid of how "Rabbit Hole" might make him feel, and Omar Doom likely frightened some people with the money he's been trying to use.

Miley CyrusElizabeth Edwards showed up in numerous memorial tweets earlier this week, but even more posts surfaced today to express disgust over the Westboro Baptist Church's decision to picket her funeral. The announcement did inspire Michael Ian Black to declare a new item to scratch off of his life's bucket list, though.

In other topics, Denis Leary applauded Miley Cyrus for video of the singer-actress smoking a bong. His commentary, along with Ice-T's reaction to Wesley Snipes going to jail and Damon Lindelof on the "Community" Christmas special's "Lost" jab has been retweeted after the jump.

Breaking DawnIf you don't follow comedian Neil Hamburger's (alter ego of Gregg Turkington) Twitter account you've missed a golden month in the age of tweet humor. He's currently coming off a marathon of arbitrarily ripping into Axe body spray for insufficiently observing Tom Bosley's death, and yesterday he and Tim Heidecker launched a nuclear barrage of fake allegations against "Yogi Bear."

In other realms of the Twittersphere, NASA's press conference about a new form of life captured many posters' imaginations, including those of Michael Ian Black and John August, who each reacted to the announcement differently. Find out what they said and who's about to get down to work on "Breaking Dawn."

Tom FeltonSome Twitter-Wood citizens were shocked after the organization WikiLeaks decided to release U.S. diplomatic cables that they'd obtained over the weekend. Some responded with a total lack of surprise, such as Michael Ian Black, and at least one man just wanted to know if they were aware of where his keys might be.

A Tuesday earthquake in Japan, meanwhile, startled people as well. Olivia Wilde has a theory about why it occurred that you probably hadn't considered, while Tom Felton didn't appear to have experienced an interruption during his grocery shopping because of the quake. Find out what he was looking at in Tokyo after the jump, as well as what Rose McGowan thought of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1," as well as how "Weird" Al Yankovic sees himself.
