James Franco returns to Twitter and frats it up with new Web show

It’s a big week for multi-talented adonis James Franco: he’s restarted tweeting and he’s unveiled a trailer for his upcoming Web show, “Undergrads.”

Franco, who left Twitter last April because he said “social media is over,” appears to be back on under the name @JamesFrancoTV. The account is verified and has more than 15,000 followers.

According to Twitter Birthday, an unofficial service that tracks when users joined, Franco came back online in December but just started tweeting again this week.

He’s only tweeted twice: one shows us he’s privy to Instagram and the other links to his a trailer of his college-themed show on his WhoSay page, the private social networking site for celebrities.

Created by his production company, Rabbit Bandini Productions, the two minute clip shows a candid take on undergraduate life at University of Southern California and how obnoxious college kid are.

The series is part scripted, part reality (and fully fratastic) according to Dave Franco, James’ little brother, who is producing the show in an interview with MTV News.

Welcome back to Twitter, James, now you can add “digital content creator” to your growing list of talents.
