McHammer Uses TwitterTime To Talk About Airline Safety
Celebs have invaded Twitter! Celebrities Twittering is a social media perfect storm. This elite sect of Twitterati is extremely thumbnail photogenic, well-trained in innovative ways of seeking attention/letting it all hang out, and most importantly for us travel geeks, constantly traveling the world. This week we're looking at who's Tweeting what from where. Any Celeb Twitterers we should follow? Let us know.
MC Hammer won over our geeky hearts during Barack Obama's Presidential Inauguration last month when he was Twittering on the ground during the festivities. (Mad thanks to Ellen for telling us about it.) This month he's won us over again by tweeting in-flight from his Virgin America flight from Boston.
35,000 ft in the sky.... over Toronto ...-60 degrees... but um... I'm cool ! Virgin America...oh boy ! This is how we do it !!!!
Hammer even gave a shout-out to Virgin America a few minutes later, proving that he has mastered the @ reply. Something, we can't say for many people on Twitter.
@VirginAmerica Cool... Thanks for the new route.. Boston to SF etc... Very helpful... Boston is fertile ground.. I'll be a frequent flyer.
MC Hammer has also mastered the RT--retweet and he's pretty good at holding discussions with followers. However, the inauguration and the Virgin America flight seemed to be his only examples of Travel Twitter street cred. Until today.
Just when we thought Hammer was 2 Legit 2 Quit Tweeting about the three groups of people in the world--the "I ams," the "Never Was," and the "Has Beens"--he drops in this gem. Literally an hour ago he wrote:
@barryridge When the airplane is going down, give yourself oxygen first and then help the next man. If you die, you can't help
Take that, Deltalina!
