Celebs and Their Tweets

Always wanting to know what celebrities had to eat for dinner? Curious as to see how many hours of sleep they get each night? Well have no fear! Twitter has all your answers:
·         Pete Wentz : “i think i had the best pizza i have ever had in my life with my best friend ever last night.”
·         Leann Rimes : “Amazing dinner @ La Colonial! A little b ballon TV and cuddling! Perfect! Have a great night!!!!”
·         Audrina Patridge : “Just had some snap wraps from carls.... Delicious!!”
·         Rob Brydon : “Almost ten hours of sleep, a modern day personal best!”
·         Shaq : “Anotha sleepless nite, n twitter land, aaaaaggggghhhhhhh, whyyyyyyyyyyyy”

Although I tried to start Twittering twice and failed both times due to lack of use then forgetting my passwords (you have to make them too hard!), I never really understood the obsession of following celebrities on Twitter. What did everyone do before Twitter? How did we find out all the hot gossip? I still do it the old school way of reading magazines and watching E! News. But I just found out I can look at all celebrity tweets without even having a Twitter.

Celebrities like P.Diddy, or is it Diddy Dirty Money? Well, according to his Twitter name, he’s Sean P. Diddy Combs. Anyways, he uses Twitter to announce his Coming Home Tour. I can understand that. Paula Abdul, along with many other celebrities, recently posted on her Twitter page what number to text to give $10 to Japan for the Red Cross. I respect that. Some celebrities use Twitter to clear the air about nasty rumors, that’s fine by me. As mentioned in the Webinar in class today, celebrities like Kim K. use Twitter to advertise for different places. That's smart.

But when celebrities like Aubrey from Danity Kane post updates like, "ITS MY DUTY TO PLEASE THAT BOOTY!" Um… what? That’s just obnoxious. And Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki, posted a twitpic of what her luggage looks like. I hope no one really cares that she has zebra print suitcases. I could be wrong.

In conclusion, I think Twitter can be a great thing for celebrities to promote their tours, help out businesses and thank their lovely fans for all their support.  But in my opinion, I don’t care what their eating, how they slept at night or anything of the nature. They should stop with all the useless tweets.

  1. While I agree with what you're saying, they are people too. They use twitter like we do, just more people care!! What is pathetic is people really do check these daily, people are so consumed with celebrities already..this just adds to the craze. I am happy some celebrities are using their stardom for good..way to go Paula. I too have struggled with twitter, so i do not get to see celeb tweets either. I found this post quite interesting!
