I remember those early days when Twitter first came to light in around 2006 and though I wasn’t sure about it, I left it for a little while, but then finally bit the bullet and joined in with the “tweeting” madness.
Though at first I didn’t really get it and I don’t think many people did what it was all about, I stuck with it, then years down the line when I started my blog I dropped my, little followed, account and Started up @BlazingMinds, though it has had a name change to fit in the branding of the blog.
Twitter Celebrities And The Big Question Why Do They Bother?
So those of us who have been using Twitter for years were then overwhelmed with the celebrities discovering this “new” application for them to promote the hell out of themselves and their works, TV Shows, Films etc.
But as with most celebrities they are a one-way street, with the majority of them sticking together in close groups of fellow Twitter Celebrities and only communicating with each other and totally ignoring their loyal fans and followers, with the exception of a few Twitter Celebrities such as @LadyGaGa and @GunnerGale most Twitter Celebrities just don’t bother!
Mass Twitter Followers And Not Enough Time On Their Hands
Ok we know that the big Twitter Celebrities have millions of fans and it can be impossible to answer everyone that tweets them, but some don’t even bother at all, but do they care, I don’t think they do as long as their follower counts are on the increase, their album sales are still making them stacks of money and they can live in luxury, then why should they care.
It can be impossible for them to reply to those tweeting to them in the masses, but at least some should respond, even big businesses can find time to answer questions regarding services etc, even if it takes a while they do reply.
Do We Really Care?
Too be honest, no! But what annoys me is when you hear a lot of the celebrities banging on about that they are on Twitter, they are almost making out it’s something new and don’t tell your fans they can get in touch with you via Twitter if you aren’t even going to bother tweeting back.
Contrary to belief, Twitter is not a one-way street, it’s also about communication! The same is also starting to happen on FaceBook with celebrities saying “Yes you can get in touch with me on Facebook as well”, yes that may be true, but you do ignore your fans, so why bother!!!!
