The flattening of fame

Am I right about this? The age of social media has humanized many celebrities. Those who voluntarily engage with their followers via Twitter or Facebook have traded in the aura of aristocracy to remain among us. I think it’s nice when a famous person genuinely asks for direct feedback through these channels. I like that Lady Gaga is following thousands on Twitter. I dislike that Kanye West is following 5. I’d say he really doesn’t get it and she does. And poof. There’s not much more I’ve got to say about that.
