With the advent of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, it’s easier and easier for celebrities to stay connected with their fans 24/7. But while some celebrities are naturally more entertaining than others, the rest of the bunch can just be downright hard to follow either because of their bad grammar, boring content, or ignorant commentary.
Florida rapper Plies dropped out of high school to follow his dreams. He founded his own independent label with his stepbrother but Plies was hesitant to become a rapper and preferred to stay behind the scenes. Releasing several mixtapes and albums on his own Plies may be best known for his guest feature on Ludacris’ “Nasty Girl.” He may also be best known for getting nasty on twitter. Not only are his tweets raunchy, they’re grossly misspelled. His most recent PG-rated tweets include: I Gotta Stop Getting Drunk And Callin A Bihh Late Nite… I Be Out Dere 2 Bad” and “Chase Tha Money An Not Da Hoes…”

You know we love us some Tracee Ellis Ross around here. And so we have to admit that we’re all for her self love. She took to Facebook and Instagram to celebrate what her momma gave her. The booty. Now, Tracee hasn’t been shy about celebrating her backside bountifulness but she wanted to do it a classy way.
Here’s what she had to say.
I’m not the type to post booty pics…I love my body but I try not to objectify it! But today I wanna…so I made a damn collage! The pic on the right made me nauseous the first time I saw it. I thought my face looked crazy but the pic is always popping up somewhere so I’m embracing it…crazy eyes, bra bulge and all!!! #IWokeUpLikeThis#FeelingFrisky #Freedom2014
Can you feel Tracee on this celebration of her body? Which parts of your body do you love to celebrate without objectifying?
In this day and age with Instagram, Twitter, SnapChat and a whole bunch of other social media sites, the old faithful, Facebook can get kind of lost in the shuffle. After weeks if not months of Facebook-less internet surfing, you might be asking yourself why am I still on Facebook? Well my friends, let me break it down for you.
In this gotta-go technology age, consumers have become accustomed to rapid responses and quick service. Your customers, for the most part, are impatient! So you have to be on top of your game — especially when it comes to social media. With many social networks users having an itsy-bitsy attention span, you’re going to have to channel your inner entertainer and keep your followers engaged.
Social media users have no time for your yawn-inducing, boring posts or your desperate tweets to lure in sales: Consider yourself unfollowed!
Just be aware, however, that while you want to be entertaining and interesting — with a dash of humor — you don’t want to overdo (or under-do) it. After all, you mustn’t forget that your social media antics is a reflection of your company. One wrong move can demolish all the hard work you’ve put into paving a path for a successful business.
Only in America can a coldblooded killer cultivate a fan base for no reason other than the fact that he shot and killed an unarmed African-American teen. George Zimmerman makes tabloid news at least once per week and now he has decided to really put his celebrity to the test by joining Twitter. He confirmed that he recently created an account with the social networking site via his Ebay page, where he sold an “original” painting of the American flag for $100, 099.99.
The confirmation came after a fan questioned the authenticity of the Ebay account.
“Thanks for your question,” Zimmerman wrote. “Yes, this account and my twitter @therealGeorgeZ belong to me, George M. Zimmerman. I have received this question a lot so I posted a picture of me holding my painting with the hope that would clarify any confusion. Your Friend, GZ.”
Since creating the account on Dec. 16, Zimmerman has tweeted Bible scriptures, messages of appreciation to his supporters, retweets from “fans” and ironically, he even retweeted a message about missing Michigan medical student Teleka Patrick.
It’s difficult not to wonder why one of the most hated men in America would want to offer the general public day-to-day updates about what he’s up to through a social networking site. To date he has acquired 2,331 followers. Twitter has yet to verify his account.
