There are a lot of smart, funny, and insightful celebrities to follow on Twitter. That’s what makes it fun, right? Nobody really cares what their friends are tweeting about – it’s all about finding a window into the minds of those you admire, those who have created your favorite books, movies, art, etc.

Early this morning, American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis took to Twitter to muse on a possible sequel to his controversial 1991 novel. He starts off by mentioning that he’s been thinking about the novel’s main character Patrick Bateman (played by Christian Bale in the film adaptation) a lot lately.

And then things take an interesting and gory turn. Although it doesn’t seem like he’s that into it at the moment, it makes for compelling stuff. Only on Twitter, folks:

Eighties music and homicide. Sounds familiar.

Ellis is the man behind The Canyons, the new-noir thriller set in Los Angeles and starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen. You can check out the trailer here. It’s slated for a 2013 release.
