Sample tweet: "'SNL' Books Elton John, Helen Mirren As Hosts."

Los Angeles is hardly a town for the thin-skinned, but few have the ability to strike fear in a starlet's heart quite the way Nikki Finke does.

Like her no-nonsense blog posts, her tweets are terse and unforgiving — a stark contrast to the chattiness and snark of most Hollywood tweeters.
