Angelina Jolie’s right leg makes its Twitter debut at the Oscars

Angelina Jolie, or rather the star's right leg, was caught turning heads at the 84th Academy Awards.

The Hollywood actress stepped out in a black strapless gown, with a daring split that showed off more than just her lean frame.

And for those who didn't see the action live, it seems that Jolie was keen to emphasise the split by the way she was standing to present the award for best screenplay.

An action that was later mocked by The Descendants co-writer Jim Rash, who struck a similar post to the star while accepting his award.

But Rash wasn't the only person wanting to put in his two cents about the designer garment.

Ms Jolie's right leg was also a hit on Twitter, so much so that it now has its own account:

With more than 20 tweets and in excess of 18,000 followers, it seems that the feed is generating interest the world over.

The most recent tweet read: "Left leg and I talked – everything's cool. Next Oscars, she gets the slit."

But Jolie was not the only Hollywood heavyweight to attract the attention of social media networks.

J Lo's nipple was also responsible for generating strong online interest in what can only be described as a rather embarrassing wardrobe malfunction.

The @JLosNipple subhead has failed to spark the same level of enthusiasm as @AngiesRightLeg, with less than 3,000 followers on Tuesday 28 February (local time).

However, the commentary was equally tongue in cheek – yes, we are continuing with the body part trend!

Updates such as "J Lo's not to blame, I couldn't breath," and "The leg had so much airtime …. I was stunted by network TV. Curse you Janet Jackson!" helped set the tone of conversation.

As a point of interest at this point in time the @Angie'sRightLeg feed it only following one other account and there are no prizes for guessing who.
