Twitter is one of the fastest growing social media platforms in the ever-changing technological world. Users of Twitter follow the tweets of everything from products and events to friends and family. However, celebrities are perhaps the most followed group on Twitter.
Following the lives of celebrities has been a public fascination for decades. From the early days of the silent movie stars to today’s reality celebs, many in the public want to hear about their favorite stars. Twitter users can receive tidbits about these people that can include innocuous information about what a particular celeb had for breakfast. Alternatively, these stars often tweet about dating a new person, as well as breaking up with a spouse or partner.
