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!

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

Britney Spears has even turned hers into a marketing tool:
