As we all know too well, every now and then Twitter has a few glitches. Some celebs experienced that firsthand today (no, it wasn't the dreaded Fail Whale) when they no longer had their accounts "verified." Included in that confusing blunder was actress Elizabeth Banks, who wondered, "Twitter Overlords, what did I do to lose my Verified status? I swear it's still me. *flirtatious batting of eyelashes.*" Meanwhile, "Parenthood" star Dax Shepard took a different approach to things when he became un-verified, as he posted, "Twitter, what have I done to lose my verified status? Were you pro-prop 8? Was it my snarky Palin comments? Are you Glenn Beck fans?"
For the stars whose Twitters were working just fine, many took time to talk to their followers about an important cause: recycling. ""One Tree Hill" actress Sophia Bush tweeted that, "First scene of the day at OTH and everyone is recycling! Joyous! http://twitpic.com/2bv32p," while her co-star and boyfriend, Austin Nichols (both pictured) gave fans a stat to think about: "Let's all be more like brazil. They have a 96.5% recycling rate."
