I don’t follow many celebrity types on Twitter — I’m not a groupie. I did follow Cher and her son, Chaz, for a while. Cher tweets a lot, and I was interested to see what, if anything, she had to say about Chaz’s gender transition when it was all over the news. But I dropped them both from my Twitter account when all the fuss died down.
I do follow a couple of Hollywood celebrities now: actress Jennifer Beals, because I admire her poise, style and acting skills (particularly on The L Word). If I were to model myself after any woman, it would be her (and I think I am almost as glamorous as she is . . . giggles). Jennifer does tweet to her followers every once in a while, but like most celebrities, she can’t and doesn’t respond to all the individuals who tweet to her. Sometimes I will make an encouraging comment about something she tweets, but I don’t expect any sort of reply. I also follow another actress who played on The L Word, Pam Grier. She, too, tweets a lot, and I just like reading what she has to say and looking at some of the articles she points to.
That’s about it as far as celebrities go. I mean, I do follow some journalists and on-air media types in Montreal, but we journalists are not celebrities, especially in this day and age when everyone can take part in social media. I used to follow Kelly Hansen, lead singer of Foreigner, and I almost fainted when he responded to one of my tweets . . . sigh . . . But I dropped him later — I mean, he is a married man, after all, rock star or not. I also follow the Dalai Lama, who follows no one on Twitter but occasionally tweets pearls of wisdom. I don’t consider the Dalai Lama to be a celebrity, and I am sure he would be the last person on Earth to consider himself one. Indeed, I am sure he would say he is just a man, and a spirit in the material world.
How about you? Are you following any celebrities on Twitter? Who are your fave Twitterites?
We follow none of them, since they live in their own unrealistic idealog society we have no interest in them at all.
The only two celebrities I’ve followed, (besides YOU, of course), are Cher & Chaz… Cher’s a riot. She’s a ‘say it like it is’ kinda gal… A friend used to send me Steve Martin tweets.. They were always funny & weird… I can’t say I’m a real twitter fan as the posts are too short, and I’m a yacky type of person… hehe
Have a super day!!!
