Record producer communicates

In news that'll no doubt have one half of the commentariat going 'these famous folks get it too easy inside' and the rest saying 'whatever happened to gruel and the treadmill?' it has emerged that Phil Spector is twittering from jail.

The record producer, who has just begun an 18 year sentence for killing actress Lana Clarkson, has opened a Twitter page on which he remarks "There's a weird looking spider in here with 'don't fuck with me' written all over it,", postulates that "Happiness is when you feel pretty fucking good and you've no bad shit on your mind," and says he's going to write an angry letter to the prison governer demanding the return of his wigs.
