James Cameron TwitterAfter an inspirational chat with Ryan Seacrest, director James Cameron has joined Twitter.

Tweeting straight from the heart, Cameron wrote in his inaugural post on Friday, "ryan seacrest told me I had to get on Twitter. So here I am. First tweet. I feel younger already."

The reportedly difficult, sometimes egomaniacal director of 'Avatar,' 'Titanic' and the first two 'Terminator' films didn't hesistate to poke fun of himself, either, writing, "I never tweeted before because I'm a long winded blowhard, and they don't allow enough characters."

Now he's retweeting, interacting with fans, and using hashtags like a boss.
