Et tu, Thomas?
It was probably bound to happen sooner or later. Superstar chef Thomas Keller (the French Laundry, Bouchon, Per Se) has joined the Twittering hordes. Don't expect a lot of ROTFL or OMG moments, though; Keller's a pretty buttoned-up guy except in the most informal of situations. His first Tweet announced that the Napa Valley Wine Auction was underway and that he'd be cooking a special dinner for Colgin. So far, he's got fewer than 300 "followers," but then again, he's only "following" two people himself: fellow stars Tom Colicchio (Craft, "Top Chef") and Grant Achatz (Alinea).
