I started with Twitter a month or so ago. As it happens, Milla Jovovich started at about the same time. I have 109 followers. Tonight, Milla passed 100,000 followers. (I’m working on, I’m working on it!)
I started following her “tweets” pretty early; I think her second or third tweet was where I came in. She really didn’t know what to say. So she just starting posting mundane little descriptions of what she was doing that day. On the set of whatever scifi/videogame movie sequel she’s doing (Something IV). Well, this quickly turned into a fascinating star’s eye view of the filmmaking process. Since then she’d gotten a lot more proficient: she regularly posts videos she’s taken on the set, or at home with her toddler, etc.
Tonight, to celebrate her 100,000th follower, she–in response to a whirlwind of suggestions from the 100,000–is having everyone donate $1 to a couple different charities. If you’re interested in following along–she really is a very genuine, nice, engaging person, as I can attest from having met her, along with another Doper, at her Schuba’s appearance a while back–if you’re interested, click on the hash-tag “#twitterbration.”
