Twitter has become the hot spot for news, entertainment information and the occasional rap beef. One person who knows how powerful the social networking site has become is50 Cent. With nearly 4.8 million followers, the G-Unit CEOhas seen firsthand how much influence a single tweet can have.
In a recent interview with HipHollywood, 50 breaks down what tweeting is all about.
“What a tweet is — it’s spontaneous. I think it’s entertainment,” Fif tells HipHollywood. “For an entertainer, you’re entertaining the people that are there. It’s not necessarily your thought process or who you actually are. It’s not a representation of your character if you’re conscious of what your audience wants.”
Recently 50 got into a war of words with radio host Laura Ingraham and Bill O’Reilly over comments he made about Fox News’ negative coverage of Chris Brown’s recent appearance on The Today Show.
“I’ve seen things that I wrote on twitter on the national news,” 50 said. “It will make you slow down a bit when you see it’s covered that widely. When you can get national coverage from your cell phone wherever you’re at it says something. I don’t know exactly what it says, but it says something.”
