No More Twitter Spoilers? Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers Banned by DreamWorks

All good things must come to an end ... or so it seems.
For several months now, Twitter has been a top source for behind-the-scenes movie news, including plot and casting leaks. Unhappy with the trend, studios are inserting anti-Tweet clauses into many stars' contracts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A recent talent contract from Disney includes a new clause forbidding confidentiality breaches via "interactive media such as Facebook, Twitter, or any other interactive social network or personal blog."
Over at DreamWorks, a writer's deal cautions not to jump the gun on studio press releases via "a social networking site, blog or other Internet-type site."
Who will be among the first affected by the new contract language? The Telegraph is reporting that affected stars include Cameron Diaz and Mike Myers, due to film the Shrek follow-up next year for DreamWorks.
"The greatest fairy tale never told," indeed.
