This year, the Internet was alive with the sound of tweeting. And as every socially savvy celebrity can attest, the tone of a tweet can make people laugh, start fights, or create tons of drama. Click through for a list of some of the craziest star tweets of 2013.
Kanye West vs. Jimmy Kimmel: It was the hashtag to end all hashtags. The rapper was NOT amused after the late-night host spoofed an interview West had given. And Kanye didn't mince words, going on an epic Twitter tirade that included this gem: "SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F—KING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK #ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!" The pair eventually made up on Kimmel's late night show.
Charlie Sheen vs. Brooke Mueller: The "Anger Management" star is not one to censor his wrath, and this year he was particularly angry about the duo's ongoing custody battle over 4-year-old sons Bob and Max on his ex-wife's birthday. Sheen tweeted a photo of a grenade candle and portion of a birthday cake with a lewd message before continuing with, "oh, by the way, nice try this morning Brooke. You are a chubby weirdo who will lose at every turn trying to get between me and my boys."
Kelly Clarkson vs. VMA's: "American Idol's" first winner was NOT a fan of this year's MTV VMA performances, which included Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. "Just saw a couple performances from the VMA's last night. 2 words…#pitchystrippers," she quipped.
Kim Kardashian vs. Katie Couric: Don't send Kim K. baby presents if you've ever said anything negative about her! "#IHateFakeMediaFriends #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkS—t," the reality star wrote with a picture of a gift Couric sent to baby North after the newscaster publicly said she didn't know why the Kardashian family was famous.
Sylvester Stallone vs. Bruce Willis: Shortly after it was announced Willis would no longer be in "Expendables 3," due to high salary demands, Sly wrote, "GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE." While he didn't reference his former co-star by name, the intended recipient of Stalone's rage seems pretty clear.
Lady Gaga vs. Adam Levine: "Ugh..recycling old art for a younger generation doesn't make you an artist. It makes you an art teacher," Levine declared after the singer's "Applause" music video, in which she references several famous works of art, was released. Gaga retorted, "uh oh guys the art police is here." Causing him to write back, "while we're at it we should call the grammar police." Zing!
Lady Gaga vs. Perez Hilton: Try to follow along … After the blogger posted negative tweets about her "ARTPOP" album, Gaga struck back on Twitter, writing, "Still have the text Perez sent me of me in a wheelchair w the words KARMA written across + Madonna pointing a gun at me. Day of my accident." Hilton then refuted claims that she was the one to sever ties, tweeting, "@LadyGaGa And I was the one who pulled away from u after I realized what a real-life vampire you are! It's been your M.O. your whole career!" He went on to tell fans to buy Christina Aguilera's "Bionic" over "ARTPOP" and tweeted the singer's parents about her admitted drug use. Keep your feeds refreshed, this feud is still going strong.
Kelly Osbourne vs. Lady Gaga: When Lady Gaga visited the set of the U.K. "X Factor" and posed with Sharon Osbourne holding a birthday cake for her daughter, Kelly, the "Fashion Police" co-host must have been in a mood. "Not to be ungrateful but why would you send me a birthday cake via my MOTHER in a country half the world away? #JustSendItToMe #LoveNotWar," Osborne complained on Twitter. Her follow-up tweet included a picture of the sweet treat captioned, "#EatMySh-t #Hypocrisy." Eventually, Kelly and Gaga made up.
Martha Stewart vs. Apple: The 72-year-old lifestyle maven doesn't go to customer service, customer service comes to her … or at least she thinks they should. "I just dropped my iPad on the ground and shattered two glass corners. What to do?does one call Apple to come and pick it up or do I take it?" Stewart tweeted to her nearly 3 million followers. When no Apple employees rang her doorbell, she continued, "I am still waiting for an apple rep to come pick up my IPad. No action ye[t]."
Olivia Wilde vs. Justin Bieber: The actress incited the anger of thousands of Beliebers after writing, "Bieber, put your f—king shirt on. (unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt)." She later poked fun at the hateful tweets she'd received from Biebs fans during an appearance on "The Tonight Show."
Anna Kendrick: Apropos of nothing, the "Pitch Perfect" actress mused: "I wish I were a gay man so I could date Tim Gunn" and the Internet laughed. Maybe she should help to resurrect "Saturday Night Live's" Deep Thoughts skit?
Sinead O'Connor vs. Miley Cyrus: Miley doesn't like unsolicited advice. After O'Connor penned an open letter blasting Cyrus for her use of sexuality on stage, the "Wrecking Ball" singer wrote this snarky tweet: "Before Amanda Bynes…. There was …." and linked to a photo of strange tweets the "Nothing Compares 2 U" singer sent soliciting medical help via Twitter.
One Direction vs. The Wanted: Boy band brawl! After 1D's Louis Tomlinson made fun of The Wanted during a concert stop, the rival band's member Tom Parker wrote, "you even talk about us at your own gig. Are you that upset you didn't get in this band?" An evening's worth of Twitter warfare ensued before Tomlinson sent his final jab: "You clearly spend too much time on twitter. Funny that face to face you act like a little girl. Goodnight old friend."
Dishonorable Mentions: These were too bad to publish, but no catalogue of 2013 tweets would be complete without Chris Brown's slur-filled rant against comedy writer Jenny Johnson and Alec Baldwin's tirade against journalist George Stark after the writer claimed Baldwin's wife Hilaria was tweeting during James Gandolfini's funeral.
