Celebrities On Twitter: Helpful, Hurtful Or Hilarity?

Twitter started off as just another social network, but it has become so much more than that. The question is this: Will it be the death of someone’s career or the connection to making someone’s dreams come true?

I’ve been up on my Twitter game since early 09 and I must say, it has done a lot for me! Some people may think it’s a waste of time and it’s just a simpler version of Facebook, but there are many ways to make Twitter a networking opportunity.

I’ve gotten beats through Twitter, networked with artists and celebs about new opportunities, kept in contact with some inportant music industry insiders and label A&Rs, and posted the occasional status to promote what I’m working on at the time.

You know that song “Imma Love You Right” by John Brown? VERY talented young man. I’ve been keeping in contact with him for a while now and when he comes to Buffalo to show us what he’s got, you best believe he’ll be showin WBLK some love!  It’s all about the approach. If you treat it like another Facebook, then that’s all it will be.

Celebrities have taken Twitter to a whole new level in the last year. It gives fans the chance to be in tune and in the know with what their favorite artists are doing on a 24/7 basis. It gives the celebs another outlet to promote new albums, books, tours and, who can forget silly bands?

Kim Kardashian and her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, have just announced recently that they wil have their own brand of silly bands coming out soon. How did they first release that exclusive information? On Twitter!

Artists have also used twitter to make connections with other artists and eventually get amazing collabs out of it! Take Kanye and Justin Beiber for example: Kanye refused to have a Twitter for a long time and then, when he finally got one, he had 100,000 followers almost instantly and the ONLY person he was following for a couple days was…. you guessed it. Beiber. Then, they collaborated on “Runaway Love.”

Then comes the drama. Twitter is a celebrity’s publicist’s worst nightmare. The publicist has no say in what the said celebrity posts until it’s out there. Even if they delete the tweet within seconds, the followers have  already seen it and are heading to their blogs to blog about it.

Another Twanger Zone (Twitter danger zone) is when girls want to claim they have done or seen things happen with artists that the artist doesn’t particularly need all of their followers to know about (IF it happened).

As you can see, Twitter is a lot of things, but it definitely not a waste of internet space. You just have to know what to do with it! :)
