Misha Collins joined Twitter (@mishacollins) on May 12, 2009 - the legitimacy of the tweeter being confirmed by The CW, and by Misha posting pics of himself. He soon attracted a large number of followers, whom he decided to call his minions, a collective term happily adopted by fans. Within ten days he had over 5,000 followers; in December 2010 the 100,000 followers mark was crossed.

Anyway, i'll think of you as friends not followers. But then again, maybe minions is a better term... I'll percolate.

Misha's initial tweets revealed that he lived in a windowless underground bunker. He seemed to have a strange obsession with ponies, which he first mentioned as being Castiel's invisible guardians at All Hell Breaks Loose Sydney 2009.

I'm glad you all think it's so funny. I'm 120' underground with nothing but my laptop and stacks of gold bullion waiting out aftershocks/ Right, yes. I'm down here with my computer and my gold and my pony. And i'm tweeting and cleaning my guns./The laptop is powered by the pony on a treadmill. I planned it all out very carefully./Minions, the pony gave out. I consumed the haunches while still warm. very little power left on my laptop. Very little oxygen. I'm so weak.

  • Misha's Twitter persona is that of a slightly manical character who is often called on by heads of state, ranging from Kim Il Jong to Barack Obama, for advice and occasional sexual liaisions. He has an on-going antagonistic relationship with Queen Elizabeth.
  • May 21 was declared #mishappreciation day by memphis86 and arabella_hope and minions posted facts about Misha's awesomeness (in the style of Chuck Norris facts). It made trending topics on Twitter
  • At Asylum 2009, Misha confirmed he was @mishacollins. He also tweeted from the Con.
  • In November 2009, the site Minion Stimulus was set up to collect money for charity, with Misha's support. This later became the charitable organization Random Acts
  • In the epsiode 6.15 The French Mistake Misha Collins spent a lot of time on Twitter in the episode, and at one point he tweets "Ola mishamigos! J2 got me good. Really starting to feel like one of the guys." Just to really mess with our mind, the real Misha actually sent that tweet after the episode aired (Source). au!Misha Collins and Misha also both tweeted "IMHO j&j had a late one last night. Rotflmfao!" (Source). After both these tweets, Misha then relates, "My phone was stolen and apparently cast into a parallel universe devoid of magic. I've retrieved it. I promise it won't happen again" (Source). All three tweets were retweeted by over 100 people in a matter of hours and then vanished from Misha's twitter feed. A few hours later, they were reposted, but the direct links to the original tweets still work.

The words: #Misha, #metamadness and #kripke all made it into the top ten Trending Topics as the episode went to air.

The smart looking Columbo guy seems like he's turning into a big gun fanatic. He should join the NRA. Start raising money for. #supernatural

Wow. This is a shameless product placement scene. I wonder how much Chicago's deep dish pizza industry paid to get this written into the show

#supernatural is a trending topic. How long before Mr. Twitter and his censorship cronies swoop in and strike us from the record?

Great work, CW (Clever Wizards). That was a very impressive reality show. I can't believe all that stuff really happens. #supernatural

Worldwide minions, I must sign off. There's much grassroots organizing to do here in Australia. Plus i'm neglecting my vegemite sandwich.

Tweet Trivia

#supernatural is a trending topic. How long before Mr. Twitter and his censorship cronies swoop in and strike us from the record?
Misha was likely referring to the #luciferiscoming incident.
The show is called "Supernatural" & I believe it's about a family on a safari. I'll be twitting from Sydney, AU at 9-10pm new york time.
Misha was in Australia to attend the All Hell Breaks Loose 2 Sydney/Melbourne 2010 convention taking place that weekend.
