William Shatner is no Captain Kirk when it comes to Twitter
HollywoodNews.com: William Shatner will star in ‘$#*! My Dad Says’ a new television show based on a popular ‘Twitter’ page.
However, he has resorted to professional help to manage his own presence on the micro-blogging site. The 79-year-old has racked up 300,000 followers but concedes experiencing “problems with electronics.”
The former Star Trek star revealed, “I’ve hired a young man out of college whose very fingers are the extension of computer keys and he does the mechanics, but I carefully modulate what I say. I have had a growing and glowing experience with Twitter.”
Demonstrating the extent of his knowledge of the popular social media site, Shatner fumbled, “I know it’s 148 characters.” Twitter limits posts to 140 characters.
The CBS series is based on Justin Halperin’s ‘Tweets’ that shared his curmudgeonly father’s take on the world that spawned a best-selling book. The series is due to air in September, The Wrap reports.
