Twitter has reached celebrity status this week with CNN “breaking news” reporting Ashton Kutcher broke the 1 million followers mark on Twitter – then he was on Oprah this week teaching her how to use it – and she has. She has told us about her lunch, her sick dog – and America swoons. Getting over 80,000 followers in the course of 24 hours – Twitter is growing mainstream.
No longer used for just letting people know at what state of undress or where you are – the Denton Texas Police Department has decided to make their arrests available – realtime – on Twitter, complete with Mug Shots. These are amazing to see rolling in – and it’s quite entertaining to guess what the suspect will look like.
With this widespread use of Twitter (which I’m not a user of personally, however do professionally) – are you ready to tell the world what you are doing all the time? It’s like 1984, however we are willingly telling Big Brother what we are doing – all the time.
