Yesterday morning Craig was telling me that Twitter was still a million tweets away from going mainstream. I told him that they needed some genius distribution plans -- they have to put something really exclusive on Twitter that will make people who don't read TechCrunch sign up. Obama and his 101,000 followers probably aren't enough.
Well, I don't know if this qualifies as genius, but Britney is now on Twitter. For example:

In addition to her Twitter account, she also has what TechCrunch called a "bloggy sort of site." Personally I think she just got sick of making TMZ all that ad revenue and decided to cut in on their action.
