Gwyneth Paltrow (Getty)Gwyneth Paltrow has been entertaining the masses for years with her lifestyle site GOOP and its enlightening weekly newsletters. But Paltrow has avoided submitting to social networking—until now.

On Wednesday, Paltrow launched Twitter and Facebook accounts, quickly racking up tens of thousands of followers with one simple video post. In the clip—clearly captured on a mobile phone camera—Paltrow says, "Hi! I'm trying to join the 21st century. So it's me. I'm on Facebook and Twitter. But not right now, I'm walking down the street looking for a cab. See ya!"

Fascinating stuff! But really, Gwyneth's Twitter account seems promising: Now we can look forward to TwitPics of her organic lavender caviar facials. And maybe someday she'll convince her pal Beyoncé to tweet for once.
