Does Justin Bieber have an official facebook account or just Twitter?
Cresting the social media wave with over 10,000,000 followers on Twitter in June of 2011, singer Justin Bieber is a very green tech savvy celebrity teen! Famous teen crooner of songs such as Baby, My World and a child prodigy mentored by R&B singer Usher Raymond he was just listed as one of the richest young celebrities in the world by Forbes magazine [circa June 13th, 2011]. IN his professional life and personal life (dating Disney Princess actress Selena Gomez, also a pop singer) the Biebs is doing very well for himself. Other teen celebrities on the Forbes list include singers Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, putting him in fab teen scene company. But how did Justin Bieber rise so quickly to being world-famous? Thanks to his discovery on YouTube in viral videos and his effective use of Twitter brand marketing.
Currently in a dating relationship with singer Selena Gomez, actress from Disney channel TV show Wizards of Waverly Place, the Biebs is one teen that makes times to communicate to his fans in 140 characters or less on Twitter! He even helped make his girlfriend more famous this week when he tweeted the hashtag #getwellselena to his followers, making her food poisoning and exhaustion bout after the celebrity couple’s Memorial Day two-week long luxury vacation to Hawaii, Texas, and Canada before the two appeared at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards and he perfromed at the 2011 CMT Awards for country music.
Why does Justin Bieber use Twitter to talk to his fans? Is it the fact that Twitter saves trees and doesn’t lead to pollution? Or is it that the 140 or less character restriction lets him talk without really having to get too intellectual? With a verified Twitter page, does Justin Bieber have a Facebook fan page?
Verified accounts on Twitter are one type of social media many Hollywood celebs, including Justin’s girlfriend Selena Gomez — who also has a verified account on Twitter, use to reach out to fans.
Why are star celebs ready to reach out directly to their followers?
To bypass the Paparazzi and celeb gossip sources, letting followers get to hear entertainment news directly from the horse’s mouth (rather than just reading tabloid magazine quotes and celebrity interviews published in entertainment journals.
Twitter is seen as a quick way to get messages out to a large number of people in an eco-friendly. A green celebrity, does Justin Bieber use Twitter for saving the environment, going green, and earning a bit of green himself since time is money and Twitter is quick?
The only drawback this writer can see to Justin Bieber tweeting so openly?
With its 140 character limitation per message on Twitter in Verified Tweets, does this allow Justin Bieber to keep messages short and sweet, his words highlight the fact that he does not appear to be a true academic — only just a regular teen who types fast and makes errors in text just like anybody.
To that end, if the Biebs has spellcheck and more to say — he should be leveraging other froms of social media daily.
Take (for example) Facebook.
A Facebook fan page lets Hollywood celebs interact with adoring fans. However, because most of Biebs followers are children (or grandchildren) of people reading celebrity gossip on the net, Twitter — which comes in easily on a cel phone — might be easier for kids to access and read status updates.
Facebook, for the most part, discourages minors from interacting with others, due to predatory laws.
