TMI! Celebs For God's Sake Stop Using Twitter! Spare Us!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Celebrities who bombard fans with Twitter updates are likely to have shorter careers than those who maintain an aura of mystique, according to a survey."


Elvis Presley maintained an aura of mystery in large part because he granted very few interviews. In his later years we knew Elvis was a bloated caricature of himself, and that he had a penchant for drugs and peanut butter, but we weren`t familiar with the minutia of his life.


Today thanks to the tabloids, Internet, and a landscape of thousands of cable, satellite and broadcasts stations we know everything there is to know about our favorite celebs, warts and all. Entertainers have lost their uniqueness, Britney Spears is no longer special, she`s just like that crackhead who lives in the trailer park in the outskirts of town.

With Twitter we are suffering from info overload: TMI! I don`t need to know that Amy Winehouse just popped a zit, or that Whitney Houston is tweaking.

Enough already! In the name of God in heaven above, celebs please cancel your Twitter accounts!
