This is where the haves and have nots get start being separated again.
The internet has always been the great equalizer because all domains and email addresses are created equally and everyone has an equal shot at doing anything.
For instance I was sitting there watching the morning news and the local guy said something hysterically stupid and I jumped online and started a brief interaction with the guy between his segments on the morning news, mocked him just a little, congratulated him for a fine job of back-peddling, both had fun the end but I sure as heck wasn't going to pay to do it.
Once you start differentiating between celebrities and everyone else it all starts to go south.
What need, Facebook and Twitter will charge you to follow celebrities?
