You’ve Made It When a Ghost Writer Tweets For You

I want to be Guy Kawasaki’s next ghost writer. Maybe I’ll ask him in person what I need to do to get the gig when he comes to Vancouver next week.

And after reading this article in today’s New York Times, I will also ask him why so many of us bought into the notion that our favourite celebrities, politicans and influencers might actually be honest with us for once?  Like the article says, I am feeling cheated a bit.

…many online commentators are appalled at the practice of enlisting ghost Twitterers…

Actually, more than cheated, I feel silly that (yes, I admit it) I thought some of the more important people I was following were really tweeting.  Am I alone in this?
