The Irish world (make that rockbelly) of celebrity social media goes into mass outrage (two hashtags or more is how you tell) as the key “influencers” in Ireland are announced and it’s none of them. After all the work they did Retweeting Mark Little and telling George Hook how great he was and how he’s always so right and now this slight. After all the tweeting and liveblogging of TV shows. After all the pictures of mobile phones they weren’t allowed to take and upload and tag! After all the reviews of the freebies they got. After all the blog posts with titles stuffed with the keywords people used for whatever was in the tabloids that day. Jedward apprentice floods Cork weirdeyes carbomb. After all the PR events where the same 5.3 bloggers turned up to sample your new version of fairy liquid. After we went to RTE and looked AROUND!
And to top it all! Wordpress, the favourite of bloggers who like nothing more than doing a good old upgrade on a nightly basis was the technology behind this affront. It’s like getting slapped against the cheek by a dry leather glove with each finger being made of a mini-glove. And one finger of said mini-glove having an Elisabeth Duke faux diamond ring on it to scrape ya. Awful.
I’m going to leave an anon comment on this very blog expressing my outrage!
