If you’re on Twitter, I guess you’ve had your share of stories about following a celebrity, be it local or not. I have mine, too, of course. But how would you feel if the celebrity you’re following followed you back? I wouldn’t have an answer to that question until early this morning. Yes, a celebrity followed me back. And she’s not just an artist, but an icon. Ok, I guess I’m still not over what happened earlier, so here it goes.
Oh wait, did I mention that the one I am pertaining to is Paula Abdul? I’ve been following her for quite a while now. I sometimes tweet her, not expecting any reply of course. The usual “Good morning/good evening. Much love from the Philippines” type of tweet. And that’s exactly what I tweeted her late last night, and instead of tweeting back, she followed me instead! I was about to sleep and already tweeted good night when I noticed my followers became 159, so I curiously checked who it was. My jaw dropped when I saw it was Paula! I can’t believe it. Seriously?! My heart suddenly began beating faster, my hand started to shake, and I freaked out. This may sound like I am exagerrating, but that’s how it felt. Stoked. Excited. Happy. Bewildered. All at the same time. I feel like jumping up and down, like she just gave me a “Yes” and got a golden ticket!
Thank you, Paula! I hope you won’t un-follow me. LOL! 🙂
