Listing Rules:

I've tried to concentrate on working actors over celebrities (for example, I didn't include Britney Spears). I've tried to put everyone in the category that they are best known for. For example, Kevin Smith is better known as a director than actor or writer and Roger Avary is better known as a writer than director (at this point).

So that the list doesn't get too crowded, I'm only going to include actors, writers and directors that have had a major film released (with a few exceptions). We now have nearly 100 twitter accounts! I'm sure there might be some people I missed (especially in the screenwriter section). If you know of any credited screenwriters, directors or actors that we may have missed, please leave their Twitter names in the comments below.
