Ashton Kutcher steals page from Mike Jones' book, tweets out phone number so people can text him


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."

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.
