Tonight we're getting twitchy

0:00:050:00:07

with 2011's most annoying celebrity tweeters.

0:00:070:00:11

2011 has been the year that even more celebrities have taken to Twitter,

0:00:120:00:16

but who knew so many of them would be serving up such dire drivel?

0:00:160:00:20

Here, with their very own dodgy spelling and grammar,

0:00:200:00:23

are the year's top five tiresome tweeters.

0:00:230:00:26

At number five, it's Mel B, who irritated us

0:00:260:00:30

with this romantic tweet back in June.

0:00:300:00:33

I actually got into a huge barney with Mel B this year,

0:00:360:00:41

which was quite well documented on Twitter, but actually it was all sparked by this tweet.

0:00:410:00:47

A whole load of victims of rape were really disgusted by it.

0:00:470:00:51

It was just a ridiculous comment, and she has to be

0:00:510:00:54

one of those celebrities who should just be banned from Twitter.

0:00:540:00:58

Wayne Rooney is at number four

0:00:580:01:00

after he tried his hand at social commentary

0:01:000:01:02

following the summer riots.

0:01:020:01:04

I don't think he's one to be judging people on, you know,

0:01:120:01:15

"Just cos you haven't got a job, you can burn down buildings."

0:01:150:01:18

I don't really think he should be casting wider views on society

0:01:180:01:21

when he sleeps with grannies.

0:01:210:01:23

At number three, Duncan Bannatyne turned gangster

0:01:240:01:27

after a mysterious Russian sent threatening tweets to his daughter.

0:01:270:01:31

I was just a bit upset that on the new series of Dragon's Den,

0:01:400:01:43

they didn't go, "And first in the Den tonight is Yuri from Moscow.

0:01:430:01:47

"He's looking for £25,000 for his new kidnapping business."

0:01:470:01:50

Imagine Duncan's response.

0:01:500:01:52

At number two, 50 Cent managed to annoy us

0:01:520:01:54

by making light of the horrific tsunami

0:01:540:01:57

that destroyed parts of Japan in March.

0:01:570:01:59

"LOL."

0:02:080:02:09

If ever there was a time for an LOL,

0:02:090:02:11

it is definitely when there is a massive earthquake in Japan.

0:02:110:02:15

It's ridiculous. You'd think that somebody like 50 Cent

0:02:150:02:18

would have somebody monitoring their tweets.

0:02:180:02:21

There will be some checks in place, but no.

0:02:210:02:24

50's 140-character thoughts might have irritated us this year,

0:02:250:02:29

but that's nothing compared to bad-boy footballer, Joey Barton,

0:02:290:02:32

a man who has undergone something of a Twitter-aided transformation in 2011.

0:02:320:02:37

Joey Barton - footballer by day,

0:02:370:02:40

deep-thinking Twitter philosopher by night.

0:02:400:02:44

It's like finding out BNP leader Nick Griffin is a reggae DJ in his spare time.

0:02:440:02:49

Joey Barton, footballer, a man once famed for stubbing out a lit cigar

0:02:490:02:54

in the open eye of one of his disbelieving team-mates

0:02:540:02:58

has overcome a kind of cultural intellectual revolution,

0:02:580:03:02

and become Renaissance man on Twitter.

0:03:020:03:04

This year, Joey has developed the habit of quoting writers and philosophers in his tweets.

0:03:060:03:11

When he fell out with his old club, Newcastle, in July, he tweeted the following.

0:03:110:03:15

I don't trust Joey Barton's tweets when they're Orwell quotes.

0:03:220:03:25

I get the impression he's getting these quotes off a website.

0:03:250:03:28

I don't think he's trawling through Orwell's books, picking out a really meaningful quote.

0:03:280:03:33

Maybe the reason we aren't convinced by Joey's literary musings

0:03:330:03:37

is because most of his tweets reveal a more basic side to his hashtag philosophy.

0:03:370:03:41

He gets criticised once on Match Of The Day

0:03:410:03:43

and he has a go at Alan Shearer's hairline and his shirt.

0:03:430:03:47

He showed that he was actually, at heart, a real philosopher.

0:03:520:03:55

Jean Paul Sartre would be proud today.
