Gaga Hits the 10 Million Mark
Lady Gaga’s little monsters (as she likes to call her fans) are plenty! She became the first person to have 10 million followers on Twitter. “10MillionMonsters! I’m speechless, we did it! Its an illness how I love you. Leaving London smiling,” was Gaga’s response to the impressive news. Just a few weeks ago, the social media queen launched a contest on Facebook for charity which will utilize her many Facebook fans. Hopefully she introduces something similar to her Twitter followers.
Officer Twitter Tracks Stolen Laptop
Web analyst, Sean Power, utilized the power of Twitter and Prey tracking software that he installed on his laptop to track down the thief who stole his MacBook in New York last Thursday. With the help of other Twitter users, Power was able to live tweet a map of sorts directing followers to the culprit. One follower actually confronted the man, asking for the laptop…and the man conceded! Oh yea, and Power watched online from Canada while all this crime-solving happened!
Rihanna Follows Chris Brown
So what is the correct Twitter etiquette when it comes to following your physically abusive ex-boyfriend? It seems as though Rihanna doesn’t care to beg the question, which is angering her fans. The pop star is now following Chris Brown, with whom she endured physical and mental abuse which all played out in the court room…and in the public eye. It is because of this dramatic and emotional past between the pair, that her many fans are disappointed that she have any contact with the man. What type of example do you think it sets? Is this crossing a line?
