Getting your celebrity gossip from TMZ is soooooo 2009, dude. Each Thursday in "Twitter Litter," RFT Music rounds up the week's best meltdowns, ego battles and WTFness from rockers, rappers and DJs who aren't afraid of a little hashtag action. It's time to take out the trash.
When we started kicking around the "Twitter Litter" column idea a few weeks ago, we had only followed musicians we liked, who tweeted useful information or who behaved somewhat respectably. And then we realized how stupid and boring that was, so we started seeking out the batshit-crazy folks. Holy moly, it's amazing what artists will say and do when they're not stuck behind PR handlers!
Our Twitter list is up to roughly 150 musical freaks and counting, and we'll be pulling their juiciest, strangest, most awkward tweets for you each week, but we have a feeling that a few special unicorns will become column fixtures. Let's meet some of the head cases who already have captured our hearts:
Ke$ha - @keshasuxx
Everyone's favorite pee-drinking, glitter-wearing oddity has a photo fixation. Out of her last seventeen tweets, Keh-dollar sigh-hah posted twelve Twitter or Instagram photos. We're enthralled by her love for her fans and her cat, but what really caught our eye was this gift from her momma:
look what my mom bought me!!! pic.twitter.com/tjo4xxe1I8— ke$ha (@keshasuxx) July 10, 2013
Well, hell, who couldn't use those?
Tiesto - @tiesto
Like Ke$ha, Dutch DJ Tiesto appreciates body parts, but he'd rather share interesting or useful information instead of wearing the ol' twig and berries on his feet. He's been stalking @uberfacts lately in his trivial pursuit about anything related to sexytime.

Let's work out! RT @UberFacts: Kissing someone for one minute burns about 2 calories.— Tiësto (@tiesto) July 10, 2013
But Tiesto's not only interested in making out. He also is fascinated by sea life.
Ha RT @GoogleFacts: Less than 10 people per year are killed by a shark, while 100 million sharks are killed each year by humans.— Tiësto (@tiesto) July 10, 2013
Look out, kids-who-write-Laffy-Taffy-jokes, Tiesto's coming for you.
