Twitter is practically the 21st century's answer to a personal publicist. So, it's no wonder that everyone with a smartphone seems to have taken to the site to publicly make-up, break-up, seal the deal or prove how similar or different their relationship is to say, those of Tiger Woods or Sandra Bullock. All year long you could find tween heartthrobs, California Girls and even half-naked deodorant peddlers tweeting their hearts out. Join us as we take a stroll down memory lane to check out YourTango's top 10 salacious, romantic, heart-wrenching and flirtatious Twitter stories of 2010.

9. Jenny and Jim Get Singled Out
For five years, everyone's favorite pet detective and Playboy bunny-turned-Autism-activist were a match made in 1990s Heaven. But Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy called it quits in April, and the official announcement came a la Jim's Twitter feed. The Mask himself tweeted: "Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I'm grateful 4 the many blessings we've shared and I wish her the very best! S'okay!" Soon thereafter, Jenny tweeted, name-checking Jim's daughter to whom she must have been somewhat a pseudo step-mom: "I'm so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to Jane and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart." All righty then.
8. Katy and Russell: It's Official!
In late October, Katy Perry and Russell Brand's rock 'n' roll royal Indian wedding caused quite a media frenzy. The duo obviously likes to be in the driver's seat of the headlines, and tweeted right after they said "I do": "We did!" It's certainly an efficient way of letting your friends know you've officially tied the knot.
