Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher: Is it a split in the Twitterverse?

For years, Demi Moore has been desperate for the world to know how happily married she is, constantly tweeting an equal measure of cutesy honey-I’m-home posts and Hallmark-card platitudes. (‘Work on loving yourself. Happiness is an inside job between you and your higher power, whatever that is for you!’)
But here’s the thing about parading your personal life in public: The public pays attention. And then, when things go wrong, or appear to go wrong, or even just slightly deviate in any way from the usual unicorn rainbow cloud of happy, the whole world knows at once.
In fact, Wednesday, we know this: All is not fabulous in the world of @aplusk. Or at least its not 100% lovetastic. For the TMI tweets have dwindled, the two reportedly have been spending time apart and a woman has emerged claiming she has had an affair with Kutcher. The woman is Sara Leal, and she says she slept with Kutcher something like 72 hours ago. Twitter age, you understand. We find out everything faster.
According to Radar, if Kutcher did indeed have an affair with this woman, it wouldn’t be his first. Some reports indicate that Kutcher slept with another woman (named Brittney, of course), last year. Another fun fact: Leal is reportedly meeting with attorneys, presumably to see whether she needs to cash in, er, explore her legal rights.
Star magazine also seems to think that the A has sundered from the K; in an issue hitting stands this week, Star reports that the couple has been living apart and will split a $290-million fortune.
And what of Moore’s Twitter feed? Well, it’s been largely dead for 24 hours, which is an eon in Mrs. Kutcherland; this is the same Moore who will point out the exact location of her teenage daughter’s breasts if it means garnering a little more attention.
Does this all add up to a real split?
I know where I’ll be watching for confirmation.
