Honestly, I’m not an online celebrity stalker. But I am an avid pursuer of Web traffic — having recently cleared the 3-million-hit mark on my personal blog — and a few months ago, I added Twitter to my arsenal of online weaponry. What I’ve discovered is that big-name celebrities tend to have huge followings on Twitter, so that if a really big name posts a link to your site, it’s almost like getting a Drudge headline.
Since then, it has become my life’s ambition to be Tweeted by Alyssa Milano, an ambition that so far has been frustrated by my celebrity tormenter. Today, as if to tease me, she Tweeted a New York Times article by Brad Stone, prompting two questions:
Whatever the answer, I’m nothing if not persistent. In the New Media age, Internet traffic is the only arbiter of success, and in journalism nowadays you’re nobody if you’re not getting Twitter traffic from celebrities. Alyssa Milano has a choice: Tweet me now or Tweet me later. Otherwise, I’m likely to become the Twitter equivalent of paparazzi, and we wouldn’t want that to happen, would we?
