The filmmakers behind "Life Itself," the new documentary about Roger Ebert's life and legacy, have organized a series of guest hosts of their Twitter account: @EbertMovie.

First up is film critic Matt Singer. Later guest hosts will include our Editor-in-Chief, Matt Zoller Seitz, Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, Scott Jordan Harris, Pablo Villaça, Michael Mirasol, and "Life Itself" director Steve James, in his Twitter debut! More names will be added soon, and you can see the full schedule of their guest hosting of @EbertMovie below.
