Molly Ringwald joins Twitter

molly-ringwald-twitter.jpg "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" star and '80s icon Molly Ringwald joined the Twittersphere on Thursday (April 19).

"I think it's time to get over my 'twitter-fright' and join the party, albeit rather fashionably late," writes Ringwald in her inaugural tweet.

In her series of posts thus far, she's revealed a few little gems for fans of her John Hughes' movies, including letting followers know she takes zero credit for "that crazy dress" in "Pretty in Pink" and answering a fan's tweet asking if her "Sixteen Candles" crush Jake Ryan (played by actor Michael Schoeffling) was a good kisser.

"I think I was too nervous to notice!" Ringwald writes.

The 44-year-old actress and author of the upcoming "When It Happens to You: A Novel in Stories" has just shy of 8,000 followers as of Tuesday. So go pull on your favorite leg warmers and Ray-Bans and show her some Twitter love.
