Ellen Barkin Is Not Very Good At Twitter (VIDEO)

"New Normal" star Ellen Barkin stopped by “Chelsea Lately” and talked about her obsession with Twitter. But unfortunately she's not very good at using it, often embarrassingly so.

Barkin told Chelsea about her most recent social media snafu. She thought she was having a conversation with her ex-husband, but that turned out not to be the case. “It said 'Gabriel James Byrne,' and Gabriel’s my ex-husband’s name, middle name is James. And I was having this conversation with him on Twitter and then someone Tweeted me and said, 'Yo, idiot, that is not your ex-husband.'"

This isn’t the first time using Twitter like it’s texting has gotten Ellen in trouble -- she went off on Jimmy Fallon for not Tweeting her back earlier this year.

Still, fans were showing Ellen love on Twitter for the hilarious interview.
