An imposter on Twitter

Hi Folks,

There’s an imposter pretending to be Tommy on Twitter. The account, @cthomashowell3, is NOT Tommy. Please don’t give this person any of your personal information.

Tommy quit Twitter last fall because it was taking up too much of his time. His account is locked, but still @cthomashowell. We’ll let you know if and when he decides to come back.

In the meantime, Tommy’s official Facebook fan page is here – and pretty active if you’re looking for other Tommy fans to chat with:

Thanks folks! Please let others know so they don’t get manipulated by this imposter.

-Sue (Tommy’s social media director)

Tommy roots on the Green Bay Packers!

Tommy and his longtime friend Charlie Sheen (they were both in Red Dawn together) went to see the Green Bay Packers playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys on Jan. 11 – as a big Pack fan, Tommy was very psyched for the win!

Tommy’s been a Packer fan for a long time. He has family in West Bend, Wisconsin, which is how he got hooked. His favorite Packer QB of all time is Bart Star, he said.

His trip also made the local newspaper: Celebrities show up for Packers playoff game at Lambeau

Here are some of his tweets and photos from the trip!
