Man vs Media Machine – @aplusk beats @cnnbrk to 1M followers.

April 17th, 2009

He may not be the greatest actor in the universe, but Demi’s husband knows how to promote himself in cyberspace.  Head to Head with one of the largest media outlets in the world – he comes out on top.  And for a good cause.  CNET summed up the ‘man against the media machine’ in this way:

To be sure, the mixing of media is nothing new. But to me, and I’m certain many others who were watching the action live, there was something surreal about witnessing the urgency being expressed by both the guy in his living room and the guy on the professional news set, both being able to speak to theoretically unlimited numbers of people (well maybe not unlimited, but you know what I mean) and both standing tall for their medium.

Well done @aplusk…you didn’t even have to ‘aquire‘ an account to get you in the race!

    It may just come down to Ashton being more interesting / funnier than CNN.
