Today is Twitter's 5th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FAIL WHALE! Since its inception Twitter has grown yearly, bringing people together from all different ends of the Internet to share their thoughts on everything from what they had for breakfast to what song they can't get out of their heads.

In fact, with public figures being more open with their fans and exposing more now than ever before, in many cases the mystique of celebrity has given way to a gang of awesome tweets. Some comical, some outrageous, some newsworthy, and all worthy of discussion.

That's why we decided to do some digging through the Twitter accounts of all of your favorite music stars—weeded out all of the retweeted compliments and “My new single dropped” tweets—and put together this list of The 25 Best Music Tweets of 2011 (So Far). From R&Beefs to shocking twitpics and everything in between, if it happened this year, we’ve got you covered.
