A whole bunch of Twittering stars came out in Los Angeles on Friday, March 12, to celebrate the micro-blogging site for charity.

Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, Justin Long, Jenny McCarthy, Dane Cook, Rainn Wilson, Samantha Ronson, The Hangover’s Ed Helms, 24’s Mary Lynn Rajskub, Mad Men’s Rich Sommer and many more attended the Artists for Peace and Justice (AFPJ) gala, with many taking to the stage to share their favorite Tweets, Twitpics and Twitvids.

Guests recalled their favorite on-line moments to benefit AFPJ’s work in Haiti. Established in early 2009, Artists for Peace and Justice is a fundraising effort founded by Paul Haggis and friends that encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty and enfranchisement in communities around the world. Over the past year, APJ has focused on raising funds to support essential street schools in Haiti. Following the devastating earthquake APJ has expanded its efforts to include emergency aid. To date, APJ has raised nearly $6.3 million including an impressive $3.5 million in long-term commitments through 2014.

Some of the highlights of the evening included Demi Moore showing off her famous “Toothless Smile” photo – taken by Ashton Kutcher while she was at the dentist and posted on-line – and Ben Stiller’s all-time favorite Tweet – “On a remote island vacationing, really enjoying dropping off the grid, totally disconnecting from the world.”

The evening was taped and will be available on iTunes.
