SIR MICHAEL CAINE is many things. He’s a master thespian, he’s an adorable geezer, he’s a legend. He’s also the owner of the best, most wholesome account on Twitter.

Caine has been a member of Twitter since September 2010. He’s not an especially prolific tweeter, preferring instead to check in sporadically. But each time he does tweet, he sure as hell makes it count.

This was Michael Caine’s first ever tweet. As you can see, it’s brimming with positive vibes and excitement.

Michael picked up the art of tweeting quickly and soon, he was livetweeting his favourite television shows and sharing observations about Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly.

Since then, he’s been known to share the occasional Dad joke.

So delightful! So harmless!

He’s also been known to marvel in amazement at the advances technology has made in recent years.

Imagine Michael Caine scrolling on an iPad with his index finger? Can’t think of anything more comforting, tbh.

But he’s not all about self-promotion. Sometimes he starts conversations with fans.

What are your favourite music

He’s not afraid to leave his arse tweets up.

Michael’s philosophy is, “Yes, I tweeted with my arse, but why hide it? To er is human…”


He’s committed to wishing people a good weekend.

And he really, really wants us all to have a happy new year.

He’s not afraid to get philosophical sometimes.

Damn, Michael, you’re right. It is the only life I’ve got. Makes you think.

I defy you to read this tweet without cracking a smile!!!

The Olympics and Paralympics blew the bloody doors off!

Michael Caine blew the bloody candles out!

“Started from Harry Palmer, now we here”

Also let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that Michael Caine once played a character called Finn McMissile.

Michael was also behind one of the greatest ever Twitter threads.

In 2012, it was reported that the actor had been locked inside an attic after taking a nap inside and awaking to find that the crew had departed for the day.

It had been a long day of filming and Michael decided to slip upstairs to a makeshift dressing area and catch 40 winks. Unfortunately he was asleep for some time and failed to hear directors calling a wrap.

Caine immediately took to Twitter to denounce the story as fake news.

Fake news!

Seriously, this is fake news.


Don’t ever be like the rest, Michael Caine. You’re the best there is.
