More and more people are spending more and more time online and using social networking services such as Facebook and Twitter. While they are great ways of catching up with old friends and keeping people up to date with your life, they also have a very dark side.
The majority of celebrities use Twitter on a daily basis and have made themselves an easy target for those who want to poke fun and criticise. Celebrities are supposed to remain professional at all times and not let this affect them but it is not that simple.
Some stars, such as Tulisa Contostavlos, find it all too much to handle and, rather than ridding their lives of Twitter, they hit out at the haters, which becomes instant news and wrecks their image. There are also those celebrities, such as Lewis Hamilton, who slip up and tweet things that they really shouldn’t, which also gets them in trouble.
With the amount of people on Twitter there is always going to be those people who just use it to try and get a rise out of celebrities and, while celebrities continue to use Twitter, they will continue to be targeted. Surely they can do without such hassle in their lives.
