James Franco, Mom and Grandma Join TwitterIt's embarassing enough for a normal person when their family members enter the social networking game and exponentially more so when that person is famous, or so one would think.

Oscar nominee James Franco has just found out how it feels, now that his mother and grandmother have joined Twitter. Luckily for the '127 Hours' star, their tweets have been pretty benign (and adorable) so far.

Franco, who joined Twitter today, is not following his family just yet, but might want to get in on the action while he's still the topic of conversation.

James' grandmother, Mitzie, who writes as @GrandmaMitz, has recently joined other "#mominees," a group of women on Twitter whose children are up for Oscars, and has, in a short time, expressed not only her pride for her grandson, but a period of time spent in Japan and her recent fashion choices.

"Just selected #Oscars gown. Designed by Madame Kiraly 35 yrs ago. Understated Japanese kimono fabric. Had to let out the seams. #mominees," she wrote.
