One of the driving factors that helped Twitter become what it is today was that from the start celebrities bought in to the idea of sharing their lifes through the Twitter format. Now the fastest growing website in history is starting to gather a few celebrities. Of course Pinterest is mostly made up of female users currently and that alone makes Pinterest one of the most unique marketing tools in some time.

To be sure this list is not that impressive yet, but you should keep in mind that Pinterest is a relatively new website. It was in November of 2009 that initial work was started on the site and it was March 2010 that the site was launched*. As more celebrities and their management learn about the branding opportunity that is available on Pinterest you can expect to see the usual players starting accounts. It will not be too long until Ashton Kutcher or Alyssa Milano starts their pinning activities.
Pinterest Login will continue to track as new celebrities being using Pinterest. If you know of any other famous people that could be added to this list please share with the rest of the class.
