Movieline's New Twitter Hero is... Ellen Barkin

barkintwitter250Thank your lucky stars for Twitter, because the 140-character fun machine just acquainted us with an unforeseen side of Ellen Barkin -- the trash-talkin', fast-tweetin', Bronx-lovin' "Twitta bitch." The 57-year-old Diner/Switch actress joined Twitter only a couple days ago, and she's already established herself as its new empress. If you thought Carrie Fisher was a dynamo on Twitter, you haven't seen anything yet. Dig these effin' amazing tweets.

First, here's Ellen getting comfortable with her new Twitter "frenz."

My frenz, is there a guide to this fuckin #FFB shit? Im tryin 2 read otha peeps tweets.."peeps tweets"..hilarious! Is that a fuckin option?

Next, she legitimizes her amazing vernacular.

And yes, this old white broad can use the word "brutha" cuz she's from the muthafukkin' Bronx. Straight up project style.

In addition to her sex life, there's also no denying her Jewish pride.

Fuck yea...I am a Jew first...everything else swallows.
