Here at OSM we often bring you news about various celebrities and their Twitter accounts and are no longer surprised by the huge amounts of followers that Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Usher have. Many people love to follow the day-to-day lives of the people they admire and celebs also benefit from the interaction with their fans.
Would it surprise you then, if I told you that Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Usher are all about to give up Twitter? If you’re a follower of any of these celebs don’t worry as they haven’t got fed up with Twitter and it’s not permanent. The aim of these celebs giving up Twitter is to raise money for the charity ‘Keep a Child Alive,” and it has been organized by the Digital Life Sacrifice campaign, according to Barber on The Music Magazine.
The campaign begins on Tuesday and will really raise the profile of Keep a Child Alive as between them these celebrities have millions of followers. The president of Keep a Child Alive, Leigh Blake, said, “I have a feeling that Lady Gaga is going to raise it all by herself. She has more than 7.2 million followers on Twitter and nearly 24 million fans on Facebook. She’s got a very mobilized fan base and that’s beautiful to watch and she’s able to draw their attention to these issues that are very important, you know, and that people follow it and act.”
Quite how long these music stars will have to keep off Twitter is not known yet as the aim is that once the charity reaches donations of $1 million they can get back to tweeting. So it’s really up to the followers to donate as much as possible if they want to see their favorite celebs back on Twitter. For more on this go to musicmagazine.co.uk.
