Have you ever wondered about Robert Pattinson’s private life? Whether he’s hanging out with friends, family, or just roaming the streets of London, England, the 27-year-old actor always seems to have his smartphone with him. So, it should come as no great surprise that he has reportedly been using Twitter since 2010.
The social media platform has given us a peek into R. Pattinson’s life. From keeping up with his favorite television shows to tracking his travels, we can follow the ups and downs of his Twitter account (@RPattinson).
From a few sporadic tweets to a steady stream of content, here’s a guide to the latest updates from R. Pattinson’s Twitter account.
In the month of December 2018 alone, Robert Pattinson tweeted about 14 times, with a few random retweets mixed in. On the whole, his feed is composed mainly of media-related content, such as photos from upcoming films and TV shows, as well as photos of him on the set of his latest movies.
The most recent tweet, dated December 12, 2018, marks the beginning of a new series of tweets. Since then, he has tweeted about once or twice each week, with an occasional Friday or Saturday “weekly wrap” to catch up on the latest news and gossip.
Pattinson’s favorite television shows are the dramatic series The Handmaid’s Tale and Outlander, both of which were on the 2018 Winter TV schedule. He also rewatches Game of Thrones on his day off between takes. Additionally, he has a soft spot for series Billions and House of Cards, both of which premiered this year.
Some of his favorite films include the 2018 remake of The Handmaid’s Tale, the 2006 drama City of Ghosts, the 1990 classic Crocodile Dundee, and the original Star Wars (1977).
Robert Pattinson’s personal life might be best described as low-worlow. He rarely if ever goes out with friends, but when he does, it’s mostly for a film shoot or a trip to the theater. He has avoided interviews, but he has talked to Vogue and Elle magazine about his passion for Céline Délétraz’s Celine bag and to Rolling Stone about his favorite films. (He has also been photographed with a bruised eye, which he claims is due to an allergic reaction to the makeup he was wearing at the time.)
He has also been linked to a number of famous women, including Kate Beckinsale, Emily Blunt, Rosie Paddock, Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth, Michelle Rodriguez, Taylor Swift, and Martha Stewart.
Travels And Events
Robert Pattinson has visited a number of countries, and he often tweets about the places he travels to and the people he meets there. In one instance, he tweeted a photo of himself wearing an I Love Scotland T-shirt, writing, “Just back from scotland. Visiting some of my favorite places and meeting some wonderful people.”
On the other hand, he has visited England frequently, and he even admits that he might be biased towards the place he calls home. Nevertheless, he recently tweeted: “Visit England next. Still don’t feel that I’ve seen it all. Have more travels yet to come.”
In terms of upcoming events, the London edition of D M z Z – The Greatest Dressed Woman in the World 2018 was a major event in R Pattinson’s life. The London show was only his second public appearance since being diagnosed with malaria in early 2018. (He was first spotted in London in early January 2018, when he took part in a mini fashion wedding for Elizabeth Taylor’s granny.)
Although he managed to hide most of his health issues from the public eye, it was made clear that the diagnosis was affecting his daily routine. He was more careful about where he went and who he met, and he sometimes cancelled or changed his travel plans at the last minute.
The month of February 2019 will be the first anniversary of his malaria diagnosis. So far, he has kept mum about the disease, and he has not made any public appearances. Nevertheless, he still seems to pop up on Twitter from time to time. Last month, he retweeted a photo of himself in a Celine Délétraz bag as well as a quote from another user that read, “Invisible scars and hidden gifts… Forgiveness is always the key.” Later that day, he returned to Twitter with the comment, “Even when you don’t want to be seen, you always end up shining.”
Friendly Neighborhood Spiderman
One of the most interesting tidbits about Robert Pattinson’s Twitter account is that he often tweets about Spiderman, making him the web-slinger’s unofficial fan club president. He has also spoken about how much he enjoys watching videos of Spidey in action. (He has about 22.5 million followers on Twitter and over a million on Instagram, where he posts photos of himself holding a sign reading #Spiderman.)
Most notably, he has tweeted about Venom – the 2018 spiderman movie – nearly every single day since its premiere. After the movie was announced, he stated that he was “so hyped about” Venom and added that he had “never been more excited about a spiderman movie.” He has also expressed his hope that Venom will become “a bit more popular” than the Avengers movies that it is sometimes compared to.
Most Popular Tweet
On December 19, 2018, Robert Pattinson tweeted: “If you’re into spiders, horror, and wicked trombones, then Bill Murray is your movie.” The comment was in reference to the actor’s role in The Wicker Man (2006), a dark comedy starring Bill Murray. (Murray plays an architect who teams up with a young girl to investigate the disappearance of a beautiful nanny bought by a wealthy couple. Along the way, they run into a number of strange and dangerous characters, including a satanic priest, a crazy ex-con, and an angry mob boss all vying for the girl’s affections.)
This wasn’t the first time that Robert Pattinson had referenced The Wicker Man in a Twitter comment. Back in May 2018, he tweeted: “The Wicker Man is one of my favorite films. I love everything about it. It’s truly magnificent.”
Besides the occasional tweet, Robert Pattinson’s main source of content on the Twitter platform is retweets. He has over 22.5 million followers, and many of his tweets are simply retweets of other users’ content.
One of his most popular retweets was a quote from actress Rose Leslie about the importance of bonding, written on March 10, 2019. The quote was in response to news of a mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. According to reports, the shooting suspect posted a comment on a YouTube video stating that he was “bonding with the family.” (The comment has since been removed from the video.)
Another mass shooting occurred in El Paso on March 12, 2019. A suspect entered a Walgreens pharmacy and opened fire, killing two people and injuring seven others. Before the shooting, the suspect had posted a monologue-like comment on Instagram talking about his disdain for the ‘fake news’ and his hope to “set the record straight.” (The Walgreens pharmacy shooting marks the 58th mass shooting in the United States in 2019.)
