(Newser) – Always one to judge, Simon Cowell is going after fellow celebrities who are hooked on Twitter, the Daily Telegraph reports. "It's like phoning someone randomly whose number you don't even have and saying: 'Hi, it's Simon, I went out with my family this weekend,'" he said. But maybe there's another reason for the anti-Twitter stance: American Idol co-star Ryan Seacrest once tweeted that Cowell looked old.
