Twitter is the new phenomenon in social networking and the celebrities are definitely enjoying their direct dose of public adornment. Twitter has become a force to be reckoned with in our society because of the immediate response systems and the access to millions just 140 characters away. People are using Twitter more and more to mobilize people for their cause, if you have a lot of followers that translates into a lot of power without the traditional interference of media outlets and publicists.
