Gwyneth Paltrow has finally joined Twitter and Facebook—probably not a bad idea for someone who "runs" a "lifestyle website" thing. She made the important announcement just an hour or so ago via a video that seems to have been taken right here in New York City. Such an exciting day!

In the video (below), she says, "Hi, I'm trying to join the 21st century. So, it's me, I'm on Facebook and Twitter, but not right now, I'm walking down the street looking for a cab. See ya!" What Gwyneth is really saying is, "look at how normal I am, not wearing makeup and walking down the street on my own two legs in this heat, not a cab in sight!" There probably wasn't even a personal limousine just out of the shot, ready to scoop her up once she ended her first social networking transmission. C'mon, Oscar-winning actress, people.
