Who Says What

My BFF is forever claiming she doesn’t get Twitter. Sometimes I don’t get her.<3 Seriously, there is so much gold on Twitter, I don’t know why more people aren’t on it.  One of my favorite pastimes is to watch Masterchef and have the twitter feed open at the same time. People are so funny.

If you are a celebrity then Twitter can be problematic. people setting up fake accounts, sending out lame tweets. That’s why Startup WhoSay was invented. For the fabulous famous people who want to control their social media presence. What did Groucho Marks say? I DON’T WANT TO BELONG TO ANY CLUB THAT WILL ACCEPT ME AS A MEMBER.

“WhoSay provides clients with smartphone applications that host images or videos for Twitter or Facebook posts as copyrighted material on secure computers where fans can enjoy them. WhoSay is designed to keep publicists in tune with what celebrities are posting to Twitter or Facebook and even let assistants tend to accounts.” a report reads in Yahoo business.

What is fascinating is that Creative Artists Agency (CAA) has a minority stake in the startup. CAA manages celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney. The other investor? Amazon.

WhoSays CEO, Steve Ellis states, “Our clients can provide a unique perspective on themselves and their work. They can provide the perspective from inside the limo on the way to an event, and what they see through their eyes.”

New to WhoSays is Gwyneth Paltrow. She teases us with a video of her looking for a cab. She lives in New York/London yet doesn’t have a driver? See, she is just like us! Well, I would believe that if she was on the bus like the rest of the lemmings. Do you think we will ever see Gwyneth on a bus? *slaps thigh with laughter*

Ooooh baby it’s a tangled web in celebrity land. Everything is homoginised. This is why the individual voice is still the loudest.  For a moment I thought it was Gaga but no…I think it’s Gwyneth. Changing the world one recipe at a time.
