“This is not a story of the “little man” beating out “big media” — this is the story of a major Hollywood celebrity orchestrating a massive, social media publicity campaign that was specifically designed to promote himself, Twitter and, by extension, Ted Turner and CNN.”

Aha – interesting opinion. Now, why would you buy billboards for promotion to get random followers?

Now, is it an ego thing, a relentless exercise in self-promotion or is it an orchestrated campaign by Twitter to rally people to sign-up and follow celebrity AND major TV networks  in an extension to its value proposition. Why has no-one even bothered to look at the obvious?

Come on – Larry King participating in fun and games…

Really?
