What @officialtila REALLY Thinks of Her Fans – October 5th, 2009

Twitter Trending Topics

Twitter Trending Topics

A trending topic on Twitter occurs when so many tweople tweet about a certain word, phrase or #hashtag that it becomes a top trending topic. It is not easy to become a trend on Twitter since the population explosion, Michael Jackson’s death and armies of bots compete with different keywords for the ten slots all the time. Yes, your heart will sink if you see your favorite star’s name along with “RIP” in trending topics. Twitter now offers the fastest news this blogger knows in existence via trending topic. It is THE place to check first for news and normally is filled with links to stories about that topic.

Is it valuable Public Relations to be a Twitter trending topic? You bet your background, it is! In fact, some tweeps have sunken to new lows to trend. This morning, I caught a tweet to @officialtila begging her to stop talking about suicide since children were up and on their way to school. I am happily writing this from the standpoint that I have no idea who Tila Tequila is! I read this morning that she has a show on MTV – you know, that cable TV station that used to play music, but now only retains the name Music Television? Her page is Verified, background nude, and her Bio promises “Follow me for a fun time! xox”. Not today. No fun today, boys and girls.

This morning Tila was busy threatening her followers that she was going to kill herself, manipulating them to create hap dash #hashtags in the lamest attempt to get a trending topic EVER. She threatened suicide. Apparently, this wasn’t even the first time! I felt sorry for her – AT FIRST, but I kept reading. This is one of the most self-absorbed, careless, reckless, self-important “stars” I have ever seen! She has adolescents as fans and followers, engaging them in considering suicide for her and themselves. Counting off the ways to perform the act and pronouncing which ways were “painful”.

Tila tries for trending in the worst way.

Likely angry that she couldn’t become a trend, she began to say that Twitter blocked her from trending. I doubt Twitter is blocking her in fact, I’m surprised they have not pulled her down for her avatar or background picture. That’s star treatment. Personally, I didn’t see that many tweets about her – for or against her suicide to pull a trend. She just didn’t get it and became furious at her lack of trending, ranting at whomever spoke to her, and finally, telling everyone that she is tired of working so hard to give up 50% to taxes to support them!

Does Tila pay your way? Do you follow her?

Other things Tila said:

  • Accused people of being racist, while she talked about “certain demographics”
  • Said @lilduval turned his back on her – what is he supposed to do, exactly?
  • Ripped on @cthagod when he got her to stop her suicidal ranting from what I can tell. Oh yes, she deleted MOST of what she said to him because of the inflammatory nature, but we’ve got your back:
This doesn't sound like nice, normal conversation.

This doesn't sound like nice, normal conversation.

She ends this pathetic grab for attention by actually lecturing to her followers as if they are the ones with the problem! She quotes Russell Simmons to prove she did not make racist remarks, while it could certainly be proven that she did. At the end, she is “an educator, a bringer of light, lecturing mankind for the greater good”. Get real! Take responsibility for yourself, Tila!

Does this sound racist to you?

Does this sound racist to you?

She said things that were quite possibly legally actionable to other tweeps, such as “Ur gonna get shot” which could be construed as a threat.

"Ur gonna get shot"

Much of her “episode” appears to be deleted, but we can turn to search for the next 14 days or so to read it, can’t we? Tila’s Twitter Search – Yes, we can, trending topic or not. Tila, put the Twitter down. It’s not your best moment. It did make me write this article, but I still don’t know who you are and worse, I no longer care to find out. Here’s what people are saying to Tila on Twitter. Do you still follow her? Where are you going?

Does it all come down to conceit?

Deepak Chopra’s One Minute Shift

Now ask me how it feels to be one of 4,192 people @Deepak_Chopra follows on Twitter! FANTASTIC!

It all started with @Ciaobella50 & @Mountainkat. Bella was asking a question seemingly to God, joked MK, a question posed to Deepak Chopra on Twitter. She had barely formed a sentence when he answered her! She was shocked and amazed when she told me and I’m sure she’s blogging about it. I had to write this before reading her blog so I do not have a skewed view. She went on to tell me that he had DMd her! I was star struck! Not only by my beautiful friend, but by her attention from such a man! What an incredible turn of events!

Bella’s Twitter entries were simply hilarious, as usual, poking fun at herself, how she was “just sitting there having a conversation with Deepak Chopra”. He had advised her to be silent for 2 weeks. “2 weeks!” Bella marveled, “I can’t do that!” I suspect she could, but would miss her terribly! I am not sure whether Deepak meant for her to be silent in real life (irl) or online as in Twitter? Bella, not wanting to know, I suspect, did not ask for clarification. She continues to glow brighter than most! The truth is that all of my friends shine brighter than most whether they are on this list or not. Should they seek out Deepak, it would give him the opportunity to discover them. Perhaps some have followed my example and are following the fake Deepak Chopra. I will link only to the real Deepak because of this now.

Special thanks to @CiaoBella50 since I was following the fake Deepak Chopra previously! I am eternally grateful to my lovely friend!

RIP Gidget – The Taco Bell Dog

Yo Quiero Taco Bell!

Yo Quiero Taco Bell!

RIP Gidget

The entertainment industry has lost yet another pillar of pop culture. This funny-faced dog with the voice of Carlos Alazraqui had a generation or four spontaneously mimicking the tag line of Taco Bell’s commercial campaign,

“Yo Quiero Taco Bell!”

(“I want Taco Bell”) What an incredible success! I’m sure Taco Bell must have been pleased. The merchandising was also very successful surrounding the Taco Bell Dog & I can remember meals offered with Gidget’s image on plastic cups, stuffed and plastic toys. We wanted to collect them all.

Hear “her” one last time on Olivia Wilder’s Show: Carlos Alazraqui – Voice of Gidget Taco Bell Dog & RENO 911 Carlos was a fantastically generous interview, performing this catch phrase along with a number of his character voices! Shared via AddThis

Legally Blonde - The movie

Legally Blonde - The movie

After the success of the Taco Bell campaign, most dogs would be all done, perhaps rest on her laurels, but not Gidget! She reportedly by ABC went on to star in movies, Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2 in the arms of Reese Witherspoon. In “Legally Blonde 2”, Gidget was the focus where as “Bruiser” she fought for the lives of fellow animals. (I have found many other animals online with the film credit, but will stand by ABC for the information.)

Who could resist those giant eyes and over sized ears? There was an eagerness to please in Gidget’s face that you simply do not see in every dog. Personality. Charm.

According to a website called Life expectancy of popular dog breeds, Gidget had outlived most of her counterparts by a good 2 years. She was 15 years old on  when she reportedly died of a stroke on July 22, 2009. There were previous rumors of the dog’s demise that had been long debunked by Snopes.com.

“It was very hard to lose her,” owner Karin McElhatton told ABCNews.com today. “She was a great little dog.”

She will be missed.
