We love Emma Stone. She's talented, funny, sexy ­-- no wonder her Gwen Stacy snares the heart of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) in The Amazing Spider-Man.

Lots of other people love Emma Stone too. In fact, she's got more than 540,000 followers on Twitter. That's a whole lot of adoration.

Funny thing, though: Emma Stone has never tweeted. Not once, as of this writing.

It says something about our desire to connect to celebrities that more than half a million people are waiting for @stonenobrien to make her first 140-character utterance. Fortunately, there are tons of other celebs who are social media-savvy and well worth following. Here's 10 of our Twitter faves, and why we watch them.

Rainn Wilson (@RainnWilson) - The Office's Dwight Schrute is a prolific and often hilarious presence on Twitter.

Recent tweet: "NewsCorp is splitting into 2 entities: LuciferCo, the entertainment division & Beelzebub Media, for newspapers & print."

Felicia Day (@feliciaday) - The adorable, flame-haired nerd queen of The Guild fame is upbeat, geek-savvy and genuine.

Recent tweet: "OMG what a wonderful thing to wake up to, hundreds of birthday wishes! I'm overwhelmed, thank you, guys!"

Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) - The Colbert Report's truthyness-seeker is the master of the LOL-worthy quip.

Recent tweet: "Anybody know a synonym for a word that means the same thing as another word?"

William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) - The Shat's tweets are a mix of the banal and the bizarre. And he signs each one with MBB - "my best, Bill."

Recent tweet: "LA west side drivers - remember that the Wilshire ramps off the 405 are closing tomorrow. MBB #rampsure"

David Lynch (@DAVID_LYNCH) - The director of Twin Peaks, Eraserhead and so on is almost as odd on Twitter as he is on the screen.

Recent tweet: "Does anyone have any suggestions for additional food for our mole? Thank you very much."

Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) - The jocular Brit actor, director and TV creator likes connecting directly with his "twonks" online.

Recent tweet: "Held a coconut shell up to my ear and I could hear the sound of a one legged horse standing very still."

Joel McHale (@joelmchale) - The Community and The Soup star spits out one-liners and actively engages with his 2.7 million followers.

Recent tweet: (when asked what his Tim Hortons order would be) "Double double with scotch."

Tupac Shakur (@2pac) - Supposedly the late rapper's estate tweets from this account, but we think it's really him. Hologram? Yeah, right.

Recent tweet: "I'd rather die like a man, than live like a coward."

Courtney Love (@courtney) - Half the reason we follow Courtney Love is to be there when she has her next spectacular Twitter meltdown.

Recent tweet: "This outfit says i dont f--- on the first date! Miu miu sadly it didnt work once - blame my libido!"

Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) - While a lot of her tweets are tamer than you'd expect, when she zings, she zings hard.

Recent tweet: "It's staggering to think - Every 30 seconds in the United States alone I say something racist."
