With countless celebrities sharing their thoughts in 140 characters or less, it’s almost impossible to keep up with what’s going on with everyone — until now. Every Friday, ANDPOP’s Gabriella Zicarelli will be rounding up the best celebrity tweets to help you stay in the loop. This week, the cast of Glee share their memories of Cory Monteith and Brooks Wheelan announces his departure from Saturday Night Live.
It’s almost hard to believe it, but this past Sunday marked the one year anniversary of Cory Monteith’s death. While Glee fans took the day to remember their idol, it was the tweets from the late actors fellow castmates that had us grabbing tissue. From girlfriend Lea Michele’s touching photo to Matthew Morrison’s “birthday” message, the tears were in full effect.
We hold you in our hearts today, and every day we remember your smile. We will love you and miss you always. ?? pic.twitter.com/deA4PQUZNz

I often think of the good memories I shared with Cory and it makes me smile. He was a one of a kind gentleman and will forever be missed. — Harry Shum Jr (@HarryShumJr) July 13, 2014
Happy Birthday my friend….I miss you
— Matthew Morrison (@Matt_Morrison) July 13, 2014
I personally believe Cory was reborn into some other beautiful form a year ago today. I celebrate him and his life… Wherever that may be. — Matthew Morrison (@Matt_Morrison) July 13, 2014
It’s been 1 whole year & it’s still so surreal, but today is just a reminder of how damn great you were and how much you mean to us all. ??

The show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, also remembered Cory with this simple message:
Such touching tributes for a man who touched so many lives. He is greatly missed.
Keep it Clean, Shelton!
There’s no denying country singer Blake Shelton provides us some of Twitter’s best moments with his sass and cheekiness. This week, he brought out his Twitter sassiness at the expense of selfies. The tweet was a bit a thinker at first, but once I figured out what exactly he was talking about, you better believe it left me laughing while shaking my head.
What in the hell is the big deal about “Selfies”?!!! I’ve been doing those since I found some old playboys in middle school… — Blake Shelton (@blakeshelton) July 13, 2014
*Sigh.* Oh, Blake…
Mandel is Always Judging
When taking on a hosting gig, I guess you’re bound to get those few people who expect to get a strong opinion after showing off their talents even after the cameras stop rolling. Well looks like since taking a chair on America’s Got Talent, Howie Mandel has been experiencing just that. He might may have just found the next child opera star after sharing this stunning performance on Instagram.

Just stunning. I give him a 10 for that amazing falsetto.
Brooks Wheelan’s SNL Exit
After the end of every Saturday Night Live season, we nervously wait to see which of our favourite cast members will be returning next year. It’s kind of like the Game of Thrones of sketch TV; you become way to attached to a favourite character only to watch them leave and never return — minus all the blood, of course. Lo and behold, cast member Brooks Wheelan was the first to be fired from the show and responded the only way one could.
Had a blast and loved every second of it. I’m totally honored to be able to make this next joke… FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT! — Brooks Wheelan (@brookswheelan) July 14, 2014
We’ll miss you, Brooks.
Happy Birthday, Theo!
Get ready to “aw” because it was little Theo Horan’s first birthday on Wednesday! And being the proud uncle that he is, One Direction’s Niall Horan took to Twitter to share his birthday wishes for his mini-me nephew along with an adorable throwback photo.
— Niall Horan (@NiallOfficial) July 16, 2014
Then he shared this photo of Theo’s hot new wheels.
Gee, wonder who got him that… Hmm…
Debra DiGiovanni Just Gets It
When it comes to people on Twitter understanding exactly how we feel, comedian Debra DiGiovanni is usually at the top of that list. I especially feel connected to the Canadian comedian after reading this empowering speech about her love of coffee.
I may never know success, or true love, but sweet Jesus, I know coffee.

Jamming To Dashboard Confessional
There’s no better way to start your day than with hearing your favourite song on the radio and on full blast. And because Anna Kendrick is everyone’s spirit animal, her tweet about rocking out to Dashboard Confessional can speaks to us.
Yes, Anna we completely understand this and also have the sudden urge to belt out “Vindicated.”
Adrian Grenier’s #TBT
If you’re like me, you’re still kind of reeling from the whole Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling baby news a
little lot! But it’s okay because as we work out our feelings with spoonfuls of Ben and Jerry’s, we can always look at old photos of Ryan, like this #TBT pic from Adrian Grenier! Remember when the world made sense and we could still go on hoping that he and Rachael would someday get back together?

Thank you, Adrian, and extra points for the clever “Hey girl” addition.
