For those that missed it, here’s the news, hilarity and downright craziness of this week in the world of social media.
“Twilebrity” coined by Vanity Fair
Ok, really? Twilebrity? I have to say, I was excited about the exposure for women in social media, but was left disappointed by the substance (or lack thereof?) of the article.
Felicia Day tweeted: “It was an honor to be included in the picture, but I can’t disagree w/these pts re: Vanity Fair article http://bit.ly/5qw1au”
She linked to the GeekWeek article, which states:
“It so happens that they are nice girls–the Internet’s equivalent of a telephone chat line staffed by a bunch of cheerleaders”
I…what? I’m sorry, did Vanity Fair just refer to six successful women who have worked very, very hard to achieve success as “a bunch of cheerleaders who chat” WTF VF?”
Day also wrote about her disappointment on her blog.
