Simon Cowell really is getting the hang of this whole Twitter thing isn’t he.

Every now and again the X Factor boss comes online and has a bit of a spree on the social networking site and this morning he used it to offer some advice for hopeful auditionees.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge was less than impressed by the level of animal entries to his ITV show this year and on Saturday night was seen getting irate as he was faced with a painting donkey that couldn’t paint, a performing raccoon that could not perform and a dancing dog which – yes you’ve guessed it – could not dance!

The music mogul tweeted his followers last night and warned them that he wants acts to be better prepared and wrote:

Patty the Donkey - Embargoed until Sat 18 May (2)

“If you are an animal reading this please rehearse for next years britains got talent now. A painting donkey was the best we got this year.”

“Who was terrible by the way.”

Last week Simon admitted that he was missing his old American Idol pals Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul and tweeted them saying:

“Randy leaving idol made me remember that Paula randy me and Ryan had the best time. I miss them.”

Jackson replied:


“Yo @SimonCowell that was the best eva. U, @PaulaAbdul, me, and @RyanSeacrest thank u. my real peeps 4 life.”

Paula simply said:

“I love you!”

Simon responded to the pair this morning, tweeting:

“Hi randy and Paula. Thank you for your tweets.”

Cowell also shared his thoughts on the music charts, praising Daft Punk’s new tune and tweeted about his taste in cars saying:

“Although I hear it is fun to drive the new f type jag looks ugly to me. Why didn’t they just revise the e type. The most beautiful car ever.”

We can’t wait to hear what gems he’ll have for us next time round!
