paley jared padalecki Jared Padalecki joins Twitter, 'Supernatural' fans rejoiceIf you search “Jared Padalecki Twitter” on Google, it returns almost 67,000 Twitter accounts featuring the “Supernatural” star’s name. None of them, however, originated with Padalecki himself — at least until Saturday (June 4).

Padalecki joined the Twitterverse as @jarpad Saturday and, as of this post, had already racked up almost 28,000 followers. Twitter hasn’t verified the account yet, but he did tell fans gathered at a “Supernatural” convention in Nashville that it’s not a fake.

“Hey guys, it’s really me,” one update reads. “I’m in Nash-Vegas right now about to see our Supernatural family. I’ll confirm twitter with them in person.” Padalecki later posted a picture of himself grappling with a stuffed moose head.

Padalecki’s introduction to Twitter made him a trending topic on the site earlier in the day, and he even broke into the Google most-searched rankings. Such is the devotion of “Supernatural” fans. He’s not following anyone yet, although co-stars Misha Collins and Jim Beaver have both acknowledged Padalecki in tweets of their own.

Here’s some video of Padalecki telling the crowd in Nashville that he’s on Twitter.
