This is something I haven’t done before here. I do think what the band “Collective Soul” is doing with new media is worthy of recognition though. Aside from Kirstie Alley, they are the only celebrity I have seen that actually TALKS to their fan base on Twitter. Collective Soul also has a fan line and will actually call fans BACK sometimes! Considering how insanely busy these guys are, I think that this *should* be the trend for Twitter celebrities. Sure some of them are following a few more people but I really think that’s more of a marketing ploy to gain more followers. And it’s that sort of thing that discourages me from following the average celeb on Twitter. Collective Soul and Kirstie are trend setters in this area and are definitely worth following BECAUSE they interact and that’s what Twitter is really about.
