All you tweeple, you can keep tweeting your everyday activities for the entire world to see. It’s fun, it’s cool and it’s instantaneous. However, beware of what you say and how you say it. Two very famous, very powerful people have just been undone by Twitter. One’s our tweeting minister, Shashi Tharoor and the other is the controversial IPL (ex?) Chairman Lalit Modi.
Across the Atlantic, Lindsay Lohan is quite justifiably furious. Her father (or some hacker) has allegedly tweeted that she is HIV+. Earlier, Chris Brown deleted his Twitter account saying, “Honestly, Twitter has done nothing but get me into trouble.”
Imagine the IPL (Indian Premier League) being played out on Web 2.0. Only now, we will call it the International Premier League. A fantastic idea, isn’t it? Imagine the online world to be the Eden Gardens or the Chinnaswamy Stadium. Of course, we don’t have a Lalit Modi here. Or Shah Rukh Khan or some fancy cheerleaders to rev up the action. But who cares, we have some top-of-the-line IPL social media teams. What’s more, we have more than a million players from across the globe (even from Pakistan!). After all, social media IPL is in a league of its own!
Twitter Kings 75M
Twitter Kings is surely the brightest in the social media IPL game. With 75 million players, it has an enviable position. As a micro-blogging site, Twitter Kings has an edge in terms of being well-versed in the short version (read T20) of the internet content game. It’s a widely popular team in the global arena. And has a huge following of celebrities (from Aamir Khan to Gul Panang!) who seek to gain mileage from associating with Twitter Kings.
