Who are these 1 million people who signed up to follow actor Ashton Kutcher’s thoughts on Twitter? Does he even have any thoughts worth reading?
News organizations covered Kutcher’s challenge to CNN over who could get to 1 million Twitter followers first. As my favorite snarky celebrity blog – the Superficial – noted Friday “Kutcher has officially won the Twitter race to acquire 1 million asshats.”
The Superficial said the end of civilization must be near because more people are interested in “Ashton Kutcher’s twatting than actual events in the real world.” That’s sad.
In other celebrity news, talk show host Oprah Winfrey started tweeting on the microblogging service Friday. Now housewives nationwide will be jumping on board.
But other celebrities on Twitter have turned out to be fakes, including posts by Christopher Walken, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Megan Fox and George W. Bush.
