Someone at Time Magazine, who has way too much time on his or her hands, decided to run the tweets written by the 500 most followed celebrities through a reading comprehension test to determine the 50 Smartest Celebrities on Twitter. The test adds up the number of three-syllable words used in a tweet to calculate the education level required to understand it.
Time reported, the average Twitter user tweets at a 4th grade reading level.
Leonardo DiCaprio took the #1 spot with a 7.5 grade reading level. He tweets a lot about ocean conservation, so this is not surprising. Pattie Mallette, the woman who gave us Justin Bieber, ranked #2. My guess is that the three-syllable word “beliebers” helped her win this spot. Jenni “JWoww” Farley was one of the highest ranking reality TV stars!
It appears MTV”s genius plan to have theJersey Shore cast film seasons 4 and 5 back to back without giving them a break continues to backfire.
Just days after Vinny Guadagnino quit the show for good, it appears The Situationmight be following in Vinny’s footsteps. According to TMZ, The Sitch actually walked off the show on Wednesday, expressing his frustration with the producers, before ultimately returning. Sources tell TMZ The Situation has been antsy lately even telling producers he doesn’t need the show.
And while TMZ is stating Mike is back in the house, another source tells UsWeekly that might be temporary. “Mike walked off the show. He’s so over the whole thing,” an insider says of the 29-year-old MTV star. “Everyone in the house is so unhappy.” Yikes.
The above photo was taken on Wednesday after The Sitch got into an argument with show producers, ripped off his microphone, and stormed off.
Without Vinny and Mike, it seems the show might be in big trouble. Perhaps the cast’s care free attitude also has to do with the report that MTV is planning to replace them after season 5.
In other Shore news, Jenni “JWoww” Farley is bringing her wow factor to the latest issue of Maxim magazine. The non Italian native strips down to some barely there lingerie in an all new spread. JWoww tells the mag her celebrity crush is Leonardo DiCaprio and her turn off includes guys who call her “JWoww.” She also reveals she was excited about filming in Italy because she actually studied art for seven years. More sexy shots of JWoww below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATION POSSIBLY LEAVING THE SHOW FOR GOOD?
The Jersey Shorecast is proof that all publicity is good publicity, as the strong and loud criticism from lawmakers and Italian groups has only helped propel the show and it’s cast into being very popular. Plus with the very high ratings, the show will certainly be returning for a 2nd season.
The entire cast of Jersey Shore spent some time in Los Angeles recently, and paid a visit to the Chelsea Lately show during their LA stay. Though Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino clashed on last week’s episode of the shore when he made fun of her “rolls,” the two seem to have now kissed and made up, literally. As previews for tonight’s finale episode show the two hooking up in a hot-tub.
It seems their new found “friendship” might have continued post show when on E!’s Chelsea Lately, host Chelsea Handler asked Snooki and The Situation if they’ve hooked up. “Yeah, yeah, yeah,” he replied. But it’s not a big deal according to Snooki. “It’s not awkward at all,” she said. “If I wanna make out with him right now, I can. It’s not weird.”
The Situation also clarified what “hooking up” means. “On the show, it’s just a kiss,” he said. “But sometimes, on the road, it’s a little more than that. We save the special stuff for on the road,” he jokingly said. When asked if he’s gotten luckier with the ladies since appearing on the show, he smiled. “I like to think [I was popular with women] before the show,” he said. “But after the show, it’s been a Situation.”
The cast also hit up West Hollywood hot spot Voyeur, during which Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio said they partied with Lindsay Lohan and “Lindsay’s mom,” Dina. They were however the most star struck when they met Leonardo DiCaprio.
“It was weird, ‘cuz we were with Kevin Connelly the whole night, and he took us over to his VIP table, and there was someone with a hat pulled down, and it was Leo,” he said. “All of a sudden, he looks up and goes ‘GTL, baby!’ And I was like ‘Yeah!'”
“GTL” is Jersey Shore-slang for “Gym, tan, laundry.”
There are also talks of Snooki, the break out star of the show, getting her own reality show. According to Snooki, she has received numerous offers to have her own reality or dating show.
“Definitely there is no set thing, but it has been talked about,” Snooki told UsMagazine. “I got offers from VH1 and other reality networks,” said Snooki, 21.
