Nu era cald, ba chiar unii ar spune că era răcoare, sau chiar că le-ar fi frig: ziua fusese una noroasă, a bătut vîntul ore bune, aducînd cu el nori plumburii și picături de ploaie. Iar geamul era în continuare deschis, în ciuda protestelor iubitei care aproape tremura învelită în pătură și cu pantalonii prea lungi trași pînă peste talie.
Cu toate acestea, în ciuda condițiilor de mediu, transpirația îi apăruse la tîmple, iar picăturile de sudoare se adunau cu fiecare moment, în loc să dispară în aerul rece. Mai mult: cîteva o luară pe obraz în jos, prelingîndu-se ca niste lacrimi amare spre tastatura peste care stătea aplecat. Cîteva dintre ele îi căzură pe degete, dar nu le luă în seamă: lumea îi fusese zdruncinată din temelii. Tasta F5 era aproape scoasă din soclul ei, iar dacă tastatura n-ar fi fost atașată de restul laptopului probabil că ar fi aruncat-o de perete cu mult timp în urmă. Dar nu putea face asta, avea nevoie în continuare de calculator, de mobilitatea pe care o oferă, și pentru momet nu-și putea permite unul nou. Așa că nu putea decît să streseze tastele și să se streseze, reîmprospătînd mereu pagina. F5 după F5, Ctrl + F5 după Ctrl + F5 într-o încercare disperată de a trece de problema conexiunii și de a lua fișierele de pe server, dar mesajul rămînea mereu același:

There are people saying that the sports stars are the modern gladiators competing in a world wide arena, now the the mass-media transmision (at televion, radio and online) of the sport competitions and trainings. There is a good reason for this: everybody that practice a sport have something more that an “ordinary” man, someone that sits in front of the television set or the computer and just hits the keys. Sports stars have not only the fast reaction and the stamina: they have the fame and the money, some even may say they have the aura of demigods.
The statistics say that every major company (UFC, WWE and TNA) that has embarked on usage of social media (like Twitter and Facebook) has ended up having their key business metrics (ratings, PPVs) decline. There is a reason why that happened: the stars are slowly killing their aura as stars. The sportmen get people to talk about them, but they also make people less want to pay to see them because they understand they are realise that, after all, all athletes are still very human. The status of star was carefully developed in decades of mass-media education and entertainment and some people may lose their respect toward a sport star if they find he is just a man or a woman making the same mistake they are doing.
For celebrities using Twitter (and social media in general) is a double-edged sword: they can connec with their fans (almost) any time, but everything they say will be dissected or misinterpreted by some people or by all his/her fans.
Celebrities should be careful when using Twitter in special because the message is short, only 140 characters, it’s a lot easier to misled people for whom your language is not their native language. I know you can not please all the people around you, especially as a celebrity, but you should consider that it’s very easy to start a debate if people are upset about some thing or another. One unhappy fan may gather around him other unhappy fans. So, when you are using Twitter be as clear as you can.
As a celebrity you should consider (if you don’t do it already) that everyone is following your tweets carefully. If you write something under the heat of the moment (the influence of emotions) you can tell people something you may don’t want to tell (at least for the moment or not at all) and everything can turn bad. In some cases such things already happened, but I am not going to give examples… you may know some of them and you can always search with yahoo, bing or google for others.
Twitter is a very good method to interact to your audience but don’t let it to take over your life. That’s an advice for everyone to consider, but celebrities should take care more seriously then others: they are followed by a lot of people because they are famous for doing something, not because their activity on Twitter.Managing the time and followers are a must from this point of view.
In spite the number of problems that might appear when a Twitter user has too many followers and he or she has to interact with them (those problems can be solved with a little management of time and followers), I can say for sure that the dream of (almost) every people that’s using Twitter is to have lots and lots of people reading one’s tweets… especially after he or she gets the taste of it.
Well, there a few tricks to do this job. None of them will be substitute and can never replace the most 2 important things on Twitter: be original and follow the trends. From time to time you may found yourself in the position tostart a trend, but this is another story.
Tweet often, but create space for reactions from your followers
Common sense says and some personal observation say that the number of followers is directly proportional with how active you are on Twitter. By tweeting you are making waves, you say something in the world of Twitter and sooner or later someone, somewhere, somehow will hear you and will follow you. Of course, remeber what I’ve said earlier about originality. If you tweet too regularly and about nothing that worths reading you risk losing your followers.
Twitter is a microblogging site but, after all, it’s a social network. It became important because it offers an interesting method to communicate & interact with others: every time when you reply to someone and when he or she reply you everyone else see the conversation – your tweets are expodes to every user on Twitter, thousands of followers or potentionally followes that can responde to them.
Asking questions is one of the best way to start a conversation on Twitter, reply to the answers you get and put another questions. You may get your answers, but you may also get new followers.
