CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CIRCA via KGAN/KFXA) — Ever wanted the chance text Ashton Kutcher? Now is your chance!
The Iowa-native actor posted his cell phone number on Twitter for all of his 18 million followers to see, saying he missed having a "real connection with real people."
I miss having a real connection w/ real people. My Community. From now on you can just text me. I won't be able to respond to everyone but at least we can be real w/ each other & I can share the unedited latest— ashton kutcher (@aplusk) January 29, 2019

If having a public phone number sounds familiar for a celebrity, perhaps you're thinking of Houston rapper Mike Jones, who did this over a decade ago, rapping about calling up 281-330-8004 to get in touch with him.
Kutcher teased a change to his social media strategy on Monday.
After texting the number, you are prompted to sign up for a form that allows him to respond to you. People that sign up are then sent another text welcoming them to his community.
Kutcher has a history of investing in tech companies like Spotify, Uber and Airbnb, so while not confirmed, it appears that the Cedar Rapids-born actor is trying out a new platform to connect with people.
Mike Jones just picked up and answered like a real person. Just sayin.
