Have you ever had interaction with anyone famous on twitter?

I have had little chats...in my time with

Tim Booth (singer from James)
Jah Wobble (Original Bass Player from PiL)
Simone Marie Butler (Bass player from Primal Scream, with whom i have had a fair number of chats with, over time)

and most famous person I had a wee exchange with............was Robert Plant
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

Sadly, having the memory capacity of a sieve, i cant recall the details of what the little exchange was about. It was very basic and just lasted a couple of messages back and for. Then....it was consigned to history....never to talk again (thus far)

Plenty of MP's.
Lord Ashcroft (Tory who wrote a controversial book about Cameron)
Johnny Marr formerly of the Smiths (he blocked me! I called him a Plastic Paddy.  :) )
David Aaronovitch and Hugo Rifkind of the Times.
Peter Hitchens - he debates with everyone and anyone.
Kay Burley of Sky News.
Luke Haines of the Auteurs

None of the above are A-list like Robert Plant though!

He's even debated that asshole Russell Brand, who, court jester that he is and rapidly losing a rational debate, resorted to questioning Hitchens' sexuality as a debating tactic.

Public Enemy's Chuck D...he actually follows me, which is insane to me. I have no idea why.

Michael Moore...he did an AMA on Twitter maybe 5 years back. Everyone was asking questions about politics, so I asked him instead about whether he thought there would be enough demand for an Amtrak line from Chicago to Traverse City, where he lives.

Sarah McLachlan...she was working with some ballet company, preparing some of her songs for a short dance program they were doing to her music. I had a question about the process (don't remember what, tho) and she answered it.

That's what I remember. Could have been more, but they've long since slipped my mind.

Steve Lillywhite called me a wanker on Twitter.
I saw Gloria live. Even if I never see the band live again, at least I saw Gloria live. :)

Did you not fully appreciate the 'brilliance' of War?

Back in 2015 fans submitted questions to U2 to answer around the time when they were broadcasting the Paris show on HBO.  I submitted maybe two or three questions and actually had one of them answered by Edge.  That is probably the closest interaction I've had with anyone famous on Twitter.
I feel my luck could change.

I'm pretty sure I did when it happened.  Well, maybe let out a little scream then fainted.
