Lately, twitter has had me wanting to stab my eyes out with toothpicks and barbecue them vinegar for various reasons. I won’t go into detail.
I will detail the latest reason for wanting to do so. It seems, in aid of Comic Relief, a very worthwhile charity event which I do support (I hasten to add, before you all get a bit shitty at me for slating a charity geeze will you stop clawing at your face for a minute) have come up with “TwitRelief”.
On the surface, it seemed like a reasonably clever idea.
Buy a celebrity for charity!! I’mma OWN YOU and PIMP YOU for charity!! OMG HOW COOL IS THAT!! Until I woke the hell up this morning and read it properly.
Uh… PAY FOR THEM TO FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER? …uh…are you shitting me? Must I be that desperate for celebrity love, I must now PAY for them to follow me and/or tweet me? Is this the best they could come up with to get people to give to charity? How many people will overlook the purpose behind this? I’m already seeing tweets such as “Omg! Totes can’t wait to get on Richard’s next film!” Yes, and the money you pay will be great for charity! Right? Oh? Oh you don’t give a shit?
Huh..fancy that… (And added to that, as soon as it’s all over, just how fast do you think they will unfollow you? Oh. Em. Gee.)
And I’m sorry, but celebs? Hang your heads. Or even better, just hang. Is this your way of “getting closer to your fans”? By attaching it to charity? Or is this a good way to ease your conscience? Yes, you must feel SO much better. Good-oh. I saw tweets from tattooed_mummy and she hit the nail on the head with THIS tweet. I know many others won’t see it that way.
So myself, @nickie72 @MumsRock and @hermelness are pimping #twatrelief. I’m sorry, but I don’t need to “buy a celeb” to donate to charity. I don’t need to pimp a celeb to give to a worthy cause. And I can think of BETTER WAYS! Like #twatrelief. Below is a bloghop. Write a post nominating your choice of celeb for Twat Relief, stick your link in the bloghop below. Then go forth, mulitply, and er, UNFOLLOW twat celebs. If you link, don’t forget you can always GO AND DONATE via our TwatRelief account to Red Nose Day WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE. I know I will be. And I won’t have any celeb trying to decide if they want to tweet me for money or not. Urgh.
I’m also thinking I’ll give £10 for every day that #twatrelief trends on twitter, ON TOP of what I’m already donating WITHOUT having to get a celeb to tell me to do it. Just sayin’.
So go on! Biggest celeb for Twat Relief? Who are you going to unfollow? Post your noms. Go and donate. You know you want to.
(edited to add – we’re thinking @CharlieSheen receives my first nom. Oh yes. Yes indeed.
