One of the biggest revolutions of late has been the way that social media has totally transformed the way stars of any stripe interact with their fans.
Avid followers of everyone from pop singers to movie stars to sports gods can now tweet or send a message via Facebook directly to the person they admire.
And the stars in turn can do the same thing right back creating a direct contact between star and fan that is revelatory to a boy of the 70s like me who had to send a gushing fan letter via snail mail and wait for someone, anyone, to get back to me … eventually.
One thing I particularly love is the way TV stars of my favourite shows (and not so favourite ones too!) are tweeting photos both on and off the set, giving us an insight into the production of the TV shows we love.
thetvaddict.com is one site that loves this just as much as I do and has started gathering some of the best pics together in a section called Photo of the Day (yes even they admit it’s not the most inspired of names) and I am loving the photos so far.
Here’s a selection of them:
I shall return with more photos shortly and a huge THANK you to thetvaddict.com for the inspired idea of bringing all these Twitterific pics together in one place. Kudos guys!
