A long time ago, in a more primitive age, all the way back in the year 2005, the average person still idolized celebrity figures. We saw them as larger-than-life people who led charmed lives. We saw them in movies, on ball fields, and in magazines and we dreamed of being them, or at the very least, getting a glimpse of them.
But then in 2006, a new social networking web site was created that changed the way we view people in the public spotlight forever. A web site called Twitter (you may have heard of it) allowed people to share their thoughts in real time to anyone else who cared to read about them.
For us common folk, there aren’t many people who give a shit about what we are thinking. We create Twitter pages, thinking other people care about what we have to say, but in reality, they could not give a crap. Yet there are a group of select people whose Twitter pages are bombarded with followers. These people are celebrities.
Celebrities began creating Twitter pages as a way to “keep in touch with their fans.” I had to get on board because these celebrities MUST have really interesting things to say. After all, they make lots of money, travel around the world and experience things us peasants can only dream about!
When I signed up for Twitter, this is how I imagined it would be. I will follow every celebrity I could think of and it will fascinating! I thought. I will follow rappers, athletes and the Kardashian sisters who sleep with those same athletes and rappers. Twitter is going to be the greatest thing to happen to the Internet since free porn! At least that’s what I thought.
But I quickly realized this was far from the case. In reality, celebrities don’t use Twitter to keep in touch with their fans but rather to help keep their already enormous egos inflated by thousands, or in some cases, millions of people they have never met.
Celebrity tweets are self-involved, self-promoting and littered with spelling and grammar mistakes. Many tweet so often, I wonder how they ever have time to work on whatever it is they are famous for. Often times they are completely pointless bits of information transmitted at 140 characters at a time. Celebrity tweets often make me wish I had never signed into Twitter and done something constructive with my time instead…such as writing a blog post!
One good thing about Twitter is that it made me realize that celebrities are like most of the regular people I know—They are fucking morons, just like everyone else.
Just look at some of the gems I came across on Twitter from celebrities…
…and some are just plain sad…
These are just a few of the moronic tweets coming the computers and cell phones of celebrities every day. You can help put a stop to this. Unfollow these people! Follow Living with Balls instead. I’m much more entertaining and I won’t clog your feed.
