For those still left unsatisfied by seeing Oprah Winfrey daily on the TV, or reading her magazine, it's time to pop the champagne corks because Oprah is set to Twitter.
Oprah has announced the creation of her own account on the Twitter web service and she would be twittering her first message sometime today.
Her account currently already has attracted more than 39,000 followers.
Her guest on the show is actor Twitter addict Ashton Kutcher who inexplicably is one of the most followed personalities on the Twitter service (currently 972,000+ followers).
Kutcher has engaged a slightly bewildered Larry King of CNN to a Tweet-off, seeing who can best the other in followers. Last night King interviewed Candy Spelling and asked her if she tweeted, and Spelling said she was "doing all of that."
Oprah’s Twitter account already is following some well known celebrities including Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres, Our Lady of Twitter Demi Moore and Kutcher.
Watch Oprah's tweets directly here on the tweet deck below. Ashton plans on donating mosquito nets to help eradicate Malaria in Africa if he reaches one million followers.
