Prior to going to Vegas I never once heard of this thing called Twitter. Now I seem to hear about it all the time. I get a new cell today and I’m talking about it here and there and no less than 7 times in the less than 24 hours I have owned my phone did someone suggest I setup a twitter account. So I’m not going to lie, I checked it out and you know what I seen? Two porn stars bantering back and forth about PMS. Let me just be the first two share this tidbit of information, WE DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR FUCKING CRAMPS OR BLOOD COMING OUT OF YOUR PUSSY. What is wrong with people? Why the fuck would you ever feel motivated to share that with the world?
I can see telling your fans things like ordering Sushi or eating out tonight, what should I wear or even or that you are going on stage for your next set or that tonight you are going clubbing with some friends. But really there is a line one shouldn’t cross and that my friends is it.
I think some smart porn stars are making great use of new technologies such as debating with fans what they should wear to the AVN award show or discussing with their fans about their desire to buy a new car. I think those kind of things can only help your career but with all new technologies, you can have to much of a good thing.
I personally can’t ever imagine myself sitting down before dinner and texting the world that I’m about to order some sushi but I guess to each his own. I’m sure some people could never imagine sitting down in front of a computer and spending half an hour bitching about people texting about pms.
Anyway I have no real point to this post other than to just say I don’t get the world’s fascination with Twitter. I’m just not that into sharing every second of my life with the world. It’s a little to stalkerish for me. But for those of you who are into the whole twitter craze let me take a moment to share one bit of advice with you. There is such a thing as TMI. Please for the love of God keep that in mind the next time you start texting your twitter followers. Some things are really better left unsaid.
And if you think it’s not THAT big of a deal keep in mind that now for the rest of my life, or at least for a good long while, every time I hear the name of either of those two porn stars I won’t think of anything sexy or exotic, instead I’ll think about their tampon usage and that’s just not attractive. And if you think that studio heads and booking agents don’t read twitter messages, think again.
In today’s touch economic climate, booking agents and studio heads and looking to work with the bigs that will maximize their profits and that means working with the girls that will sell the most movies, not the girls who seem to forget they are in a public place where their fans are, discussing vaginal discharge. In the end what you tweet tweet about is your business, but that’s something you might want to keep in mind.
