Now this is interesting.
A couple of twit from @guitarchic caught my attention. She mentioned about following and sending a Twitter message to Ashton Kutcher. I was winding down from a tiring coding day, so it kind of got me interested and searched for Ashton @aplusk.
His profile: 500,000++ followers! Now, if you have half a million people following you on Twitter, you can do a lot of things with it. And so I found out that he did.
I’m not a showbiz-type of guy, but I know he and Demi Moore, the “Ghost” girl, are a couple. And so I tried to read back his Twitter page. I found out that he was planning something for Demi with his Twitter friends.
Waiting for my wife to wake up half way across the world so I can tell her good morning. (that tells us that Demi is in another country right now)
can you all help me make her morning? At 7:45am pst that 1hr 25 min from now send @mrskutcher a “good morning, I love U” tweet. (He unveiled the plan. Demi is in Europe. At an exact time, all his twitter buddies will great @mrskutcher — that’s Demi — good morning. Imagine the fllood!)
(ok, the people are now waiting for 7:45 to come, ready with their Twits for @mrskutcher)
Demi Moore was speechless — or at least she can tweet about it.

This illustrates how social networking bridges the gap between celebrities and fans, between people across the world, between generations. So, the basic question Twitter answers “What are you doing right now?” can actually produce a wide range of other stuff, eh! From business promotions to vanity to being romantic — oh I love my generation!
