Yale Daily News writer Cokey Cohen wrote "James Franco, your Twitter sort of sucks" in a blog piece headlined, 'Franco, #getittogether'. The 20-year-old English major argued that the 127 Hours star should do more than post "random links to pictures and replies to other celebrities". However, Franco responded furiously to the criticism, tweeting a picture of himself alongside the words, "F--- The Yale Daily News". Cohen reacted to the tweet by blogging, "Combined with his Oscars hosting performance and in accordance with the opinion of commenter's on my last blog, I'm becoming convinced that James Franco's whole life is a form of postmodern performance art".
James Franco, who balances studying with his burgeoning Hollywood career, is set to star as the American poet Hart Crane in an upcoming biopic titled 'The Broken Tower'
