Okay okay. Something pretty neat happened to me on Twitter the other day. I got my first verified celebrity follow. Out of nowhere too. I hadn’t tweeted them with a “Plz follow me!” (I am guilty of that with a few celebs with no luck so far) I hadn’t tweeted anything in hours and honestly I don’t think I’ve ever tweeted about this person before – I didn’t even follow them pre them following me. So who was the big celeb follow? If you couldn’t pick up the 90s lyrics reference in the post title it was none other than Aaron Carter.
I ran and checked because my iPhone notifications just couldn’t have been right. It must be some fake account right? But no there was that blue little check. I may have even high pitched “ohmygod” a bit.
I was way more excited about this than I would’ve ever predicted had you asked me “What would you do if Aaron Carter followed you?” I don’t have any certified celebrity follows (not that my local djs and radio stations across the world aren’t super neat) but I remember buying Aaron’s album and partying hard. 12 year old me would’ve been damn impressed that Aaron Carter thought I was cool enough to follow on Twitter. Granted, he follows like 39 thousand people but STILL LET ME LIVE.
Of course I had to celebrate this momentous moment in my mind so what did I do? I listened to “Aaron’s Party” on repeat. Don’t judge me.
Plus the random follow worked out in Aaron’s benefit too. I checked out his new music “Ooh Wee” and am now writing a post about him. That’s pretty nice publicity and fan baiting that he wouldn’t of had otherwise. Check.
No matter what I’m still finding all this pretty awesome. Can this become a trend? Random celebs following me? I don’t think I’d mind.
But let’s start the day right and jam out to “Aaron’s Party” another time. People all around you gotta (come get it) everyone sing it loud!
Until next time,
