Getting into celebrities’ heads via Celebrity Tweets

I know that I have said this before – new media gives people a new voice.

There are so many new channels to choose from and one can be heard loud and clear – on blogs, personal websites, Youtube, Facebook and of course, the relatively new and currently very hot kid on the block, Twitter.

Sending Tweets now seems to be the  de rigueur move by celebrities, going by what you see on sites such as what else, CelebrityTweet. Here, you can follow your favourite celebrities’ tweets and gain some  hmm. .. insight into their lives and thoughts – what they like, what they don’t like, what they are doing, etc. It’s a voyeur’s dream come true and definite essential tool!

Now, we are all pretty familiar with aplusk  aka Ashton Kutcher’s tweets. I mean, the guy tweets seems to tweet for a living! Just a couple of hours ago, aplusk was mulling over his summer tan. How else could one have known that? How else except through Twitter can you learn about the siginificance of the tan in aplusk’s life? Or get some perhaps useful advice:

apluskNever tell someone they can’t do something they dream of doing. Never!!! http://bit.ly/OUr3w

Time Magazine even has an online article about Ashton and Demi Moore’s Tweets – who needs reality TV when you have reality Tweets?

Well, when I mentioned that Ashton seems to tweet for a living, I may not be far off the mark. Celebrity tweets are the new marketing tools that help the stars keep in touch with their fans, and keep them in the public sphere.

Britney Spears has even turned hers into a marketing tool:

Now, of course, not only do the usual celebrities send Tweets. Do you know that you can also follow Al Gore’s tweets! And Barack Obama’s tweets!

Sweet!

    Not exactly about Twitter, but another ‘social media’ (spell that m.a.r.k.e.t.i.n.g) is to make yourself an app for iphone/itouch! Yup, it’s basically a little widget that will let one put out updated info and ways to purchase their product right on your little portable toy! You can guess who’s webmaster just put up an “iApp”, since I am the one who is mentioning it, lol. And of course I have it on my phone.

    Hi 2ton, thanks for the update. Indeed, creating iApps seem to be the new way of getting heard/found/seen! I see there’s the MiG iApp already! Wow!
