Twitter and the Royal Engagement.

18 Nov

So for those of you that might not know, Prince William is engaged! Not really one to keep up on the UK news but the overall social web seems pretty happy about it.

So guess how I found out about it? Twitter. In one day 3 of the top trends were the terms “Kate Middleton” (the soon-to-be princess) “Prince William”, and “Royal Wedding”. This royally romantic announcement seemed to take over the “Twitterverse”. Honestly I don’t think it was possible for anyone to sign into Twitter that day and not hear the news.

So once again Twitter, thanks for keeping me informed.

Here is an interview with Prince William and Middleton after the engagement:

    This is so exciting to me to hear about the Royal Engagement. I have been a huge fan of Prince William and Prince Harry since I was 14-years-old. When their mother died I felt so heartbroken for them, and one thing I can remember about her funeral was their heads were tilted toward the ground the entire time. I will admit I did have a little crush on William, but what teenage girl didn’t at the time? I was so happy to see the joy in both of their eyes when they announced their engagement. Congratulations to them both!

    ME TOO! I logged in and my news feed was about them and all her favorite clothing she wore the last year. I went from not knowing anything about Prince Williams, and his fiancé, to knowing their ages, where they live, and that they are getting married! It is amazing that now a days we can learn so much so fast, our generation is informed about a topic within the hour it occurs. This is great for us, but hard for the competitive places trying to get the story out first. Great interview as well, it is so funny to me that we flaunt after these famous people we know nothing about, all we know is that their famous and they get all over twitter and word press thanks to you!

    It is insane to think how much stuff we wouldn’t know without the help of good ol’ twitter. While it is crazy to think that it’s a very “creeper” kind of website it comes in handy a majority of the time. I wonder what kind of site we come together next to replace twitter all together (It’s doomed to happen). I wonder when will will regard what needs to remain private and what should really go public. Thanks for the post Kelly!

    I am so happy for them- what girl doesn’t want to be a princess? Well, actually, if it were a reality I may think long and hard about it; but yay for them! I love twitter- they just did the same thing with Tiger Woods deciding to ‘tweet’.

    Never before have we, the general public, been able to be in such a direct line of contact with celebrities like this. Twitter has enabled us to break down the stuffy PR ways of the past and open up a whole new world of open communication between anyone. This truly is a great thing and news like this just makes me glad I live in today’s world.

    This is crazy that twitter has the power to announce information and be heard around the world simultaneously. We can log in to twitter and get a daily dose of the world news. This is because we can send out our own updates and the updates of people all over the world. There are many current events that I would not know about without the help of twitter, it always tells me something new, never fails. I think that the new interest in the royal wedding is crazy, just because of their status determined whether or not we all care about their marriage. This is just an example of some of the information that would remain private if they were not in the spotlight. We should let some things be private and precious instead of invading their special moment.
