Obama - Not A Tweeter? Tell Me It’s Not True!!


In the NY Times article When Stars Twitter, a Ghost May Be Lurking by Noam Cohen, he reveals that, “Candidate Barack Obama, as well as President Obama, has a social-networking team to keep his Twitter feed tweeting.”

The fact that he’s not really tweeting doesn’t shock me, it’s that he has an entire team behind each tweet. Hey folks – it’s only 140 characters!!

I can just see the morning meetings where the team gets together for an hour-long discussion to decide what that morning's presidential tweet will be.

The article also reveals that many other famous Tweeple are not doing their own tweets. I wasn’t surprised that the likes of Britney Spears, 50 Cents (aka Curtis Jackson III) and others don’t really tweet. I’d be surprised if any of them can spell in the first place.

So what is to be done about this? I know – everyone should set up (or hire) ghost tweet receivers/responders. It could spawn an entire new industry. People - who are not who they say they are, tweeting to people - who aren’t really who they say they are.

Believe me – if someone can figure out how they can do that and make money at it – it will be here before you know it.

I saw an ad on Craig's List looking for ghost tweeters. They didn't call them ghost tweeter - but that's what they were asking for. They were paying 50 a tweet.
