More Ashton Please?: Did you know that Ashton Kutcher is the 7th most popular user on Twitter, with over 6.8 million followers? WTF? I mean I get why Lady Gaga has 10 million followers, I guess, but Ashton Kutcher, really? He’s pretty much a joke of an actor with a pretty face and a famous cougar wife, but for some reason he has become a social media king. Because he is so popular and social media savvy, Kutcher has been recruited by UberMedia to launch a customized, branded Twitter client called A.plus. This Twitter app lets Kutcher customize whatever content he wants to appear on the A.plus stream. Both UberMedia and Kutcher will be able to monetize different parts of the app, and we get to give celebrities even more money and airtime. I’m only surprised Lady Gaga didn’t think of this first.
