Yedsterday I think I became a truly sad victim of celebrity/twitter nonsense. I got my first tweet from someone famous!!
I was watching the Young Apprentice on BBC last night (how self assured are these kids at 16??!) and it was the board room scene. The challenge was for the 2 teams to make and sell ice cream and see who could come up with the most profit. The boys’ team lost and the project manager had to choose 2 people to bring back into the boardroom. As Lord Sugar was telling them this he said something along the lines of “this challenge may have been about ice cream but I will not be Mr Softy with you”. For some reason I thought this was hilarious and as I follow him on Twitter I sent a tweet saying that. I never thought in a million years that he would actually read it but here is what I got….
The funniest thing was that immediately random people started follow me on twitter too (well, all 4 of them). They must have been so disappointed to find out that I am neither close mates with SirAlan/LordSugar nor I am the key to all their business dreams.
Anyway, I was just pleased that out of the 1, 157, 371 followers that Lord Sugar has on twitter that he replied to me ;-).
Ever had anyone famous tweet you?
PS. just realised that it is possibly even more sad that I made a screenshot of that..
