Oprah & Ashton Kutcher advocating for Social Media: Twitter & Facebook
Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) has set the stage for a new Twitter milestone. Ashton Kutcher is the first person to reach 1 million followers on Twitter. He was in a race with CNN and I’ve included his live streaming video below that shows the events leading up to his victory and his celebration party.
He then went on the Oprah show and she now has a new Twitter account (@oprah). The picture below is a snapshot of Oprah’s first tweet. I just cracked up at her calling us Twitters! I actually retweeted a quote from Shaquille O’Neal on Twitter. “RT @THE_REAL_SHAQ You can have everything in life that you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want” Ashton has taken that step with his gift.
This is taking social media to the next level. There is already a business craze with social media where more and more businesses are turning to social media for their advertising pursuits, so why not celebrities? Ashton donated $100,000 to his millionth follower in appreciation for reaching this milestone. So what do you think? Do you think this will change social media for the better? Will Twitter be destroyed by Oprah-ites?
