Even Academy Award-winning directors are not immune to the charms of Twitter’s weirdness.

Until recently, Steven Soderbergh’s Twitter account was largely unknown, despite his work on Traffic and the Ocean’s Eleven trilogy. (He has only 1,557 followers, a far cry from his contemporaries Ben Affleck, Jon Favreau, and David Lynch.) His first tweet was in October, and since then he’s offered up more than a hundred bites of melancholy, oddness, and wit as he prepares to step away from directing films.
