William Shatner Asks Justin Bieber to Follow Him on Twitter

William Shatner and Justin Bieber. How’s that for a new frontier? Oh how low we have fallen Shatner … The Star Trek franchise’s Canadian veteran star publicly asked the singer to follow him on Twitter, and may be set to become the latest celebrity to hop on the promo trail for Justin Bieber’s upcoming single, “What Do You Mean?”

On Saturday night, a request materialized on William Shatner’s official Twitter account. He asked, “@justinbieber Can you follow me for a moment?”

Less than an hour later, Shatner shared another related tweet, which read, “I cannot wait to see what the tabloids make up about the JB tweet,” alongside an emoji signifiying some kind of shocked reaction.

I cannot wait to see what the tabloids make up about the JB tweet. ????

A few hours later, Justin responded, with, “followed.” To which, Shatner replied, “Thank you.”

@justinbieber Thank you.

On Sunday, the 21-year-old singer tweeted another message of thanks to Shatner before retweeting another of the older star’s posts, in which he called Bieber’s fans a “passionate bunch.”

Happy to help @WilliamShatner. I love Supernatural for #TeamShatner

The 84-year-old actor added the following.

The actor also linked Genevieve Padalecki, who is the wife of Supernatural star Jared Padalecki into a tweet to Bieber.

While Shatner’s expected tweets about Bieber’s new single “What Do You Mean?” have yet to emerge, his posts come amid the countdown to the release of the Biebs’ lead single from his in-the-works new album.

Earlier this week, the Canadian singer announced on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that the single will drop on August 28. The heartthrob described it as “uptempo,” “fun,” “summery,” and “amazing,” before teasing that his new music is similar to “Where Are Ü Now?” — his collaborative EDM banger with Jack Ü’s Skrillex and Diplo.

“It’s uplifting, clear, poppy but cool,” Justin added.

Since the announcement, Team Bieber launched a release countdown, the Biebs invited fans to create art, and a celebrity has featured every day on the singer’s Instagram and Twitter accounts promoting the single.

On Wednesday (July 29) it was Seacrest, followed by Orange Is The New Black breakout star Ruby Rose the next day. On Friday, The Late Late Show’s James Corden joined the lineup, with the mighty Mariah Carey being added as a late post the same day.

On Saturday, the Colombian reggaeton singer J. Balvin, (a.k.a José Álvaro Osorio Balvín) stumped up. Meanwhile, rapper and comedian Lil Dicky, (a.k.a. David Burd) featured in a funny video set in a bathroom to mark Sunday as #Day26. The comic MC went on to make a salty joke about Bieber’s privates while referring to one of his Calvin Klein campaign pics for good measure.
