Ashton Kutcher Doesn’t Like How People Are Using Twitter; No You Shouldn’t Care

Ashton Kutcher does NOT like how Twitter is being used these days. He’s mostly blaming (everyone’s scapegoat) the media, but he’s not pleased with YOU either.

It used to be fun, but now, according to Kutcher “it’s just a bunch of companies and people constantly pitching crap.”

But we smell another reason for this star’s dissatisfaction.

Ashton Kutcher Partners With UberMedia To Create His Own Desktop Twitter App

It might sound like a hoax, but the buzz is true: Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) has launched his own, branded, Twitter client. Partnering with UberMedia, Kutcher launched A.plus this afternoon. The app is, of course, perfect for fans of the star’s tweets, lists, and a Kutcher-themed Twitter experience, but there are also some pretty interesting features that might make this app useful for those neutral towards Kutcher as well.

Twitter’s Secure HTTPS Connection (And Why You Should Use It)

On Wednesday Aston Kutcher sat in the audience at the technology and ideas conference TED unsuspectingly tweeting his reactions (“wow”) to the events on stage. Someone was about to make an example of the star and show how easy it can be to hack into a personal Twitter account.

Ashton Kutcher Writes 5-Second Tweet, Gets 365 Hours of Time from Followers

You might call him the first real Twitter celebrity. Ashton Kutcher is the king of micro-blogging, even though his position as most-followed was usurped by Lady Gaga a while back. His 6 million+ followers still hang on his every word – and a new blog post show just how willing they are to act on what Kutcher says.

Ashton Kutcher About To Get Punk’d As Britney Spears Eyes Twitter’s Top Spot

Nobody really cares about follower counts anymore, but once upon a time it was kind of a big deal.

Just over a year ago, Ashton Kutcher became the first Twitter user to boast one million followers, beating the (then unofficial) CNN breaking news account in the process, and helping push Twitter towards the mainstream.

At the time of writing, Kutcher has 4,855,185 followers, which gives some idea of Twitter’s amazing growth over the past 12 months. But his reign atop the social network is about to come to an end, as Britney Spears, with 4,834,264 followers, and climbing much faster than Ashton, is about to seize his crown.

Ashton Kutcher About To Get Punk'd As Britney Spears Eyes Twitter's Top Spot

All things continuing as they are, Spears should be number one before the end of this month. And with the inevitable fanfare and media attention that will bring, she’ll likely hold that position for quite some time.

A couple of things to remember:

  1. The Spears’ account is managed. Sure, she does a few updates herself from time to time, but most of the tweets are from her team. Kutcher updates himself. Whatever you think of the man and the value of celebrity on Twitter, that’s an important difference.
  2. Otherwise, and as I said, nobody really cares.

Still, in many ways we’re nearing the end of an era. Looking ahead, Ellen Degeneres is climbing at least as fast as Ashton, and one shouldn’t be too surprised to see the likes of Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian and @Oprah Winfrey moving above him in the months to come. And after that, we’ll be looking at the wilderness period that will become known as ‘The Bieber Years’. Dark days indeed.

All credit where it’s due, but I think if Ashton is still in the top ten this time next year, he’ll have done very well indeed.

So Ashton Is The First To One Million Followers. Will Oprah Be The Fastest?

It’s official, and it’s finally over: Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) is the first Twitter user to boast one million followers. At the time of writing, he’s added about another fifteen thousand to that total.

The Kutchers

@cnnbrk – which only this week became an actual CNN account – looked the clear favourite for a long-time, but some serious buzz around Kutcher over the last 48 hours saw him take the prize with relative ease.

To his credit, Kutcher has donated $100,000 of his own money to MalariaNoMore.org, and others added more to his pot. We can be as cynical as we like about celebrity charity, but it’s a nice gesture. He didn’t have to do it.

Kutcher, alongside wife Demi Moore (@mrskutcher – who still looks absolutely amazing), and friends, sent out a live, streaming video about the time he hit 999,000 followers, and this definitely helped push him over the edge. (Watch a recording of the video here.)
