Another testament to celebrities' sizable audience on Twitter: R&B singer Beyonce Knowles has more than 1 million followers and she has yet to send out a single tweet, as noted by the website Media Bistro.

Knowles is certainly more efficient.

She's neither. She's an entertainer, and one of the most proficient of our time.

Most people don't listen to music or watch videos for artistic singing ability. Just like most people don't go to movies to critique the character development. People go to these things to be entertained. She's doing that in spades, and people are happy to lay down their money for that. KISS, Madonna, lots of examples.

That's why there's so many great artists that are never heard of. It's because nobody cares. Nothing virtuous about not understanding your target market.

I found this interesting in the article:
She's also the creative director at Polaroid, looking to return the camera maker to mainstream attention.

Should generate some interesting advertising.

She did an interview with Marissa Mayer and a hundred or so Google employees at the 'plex a few weeks back. The web gets a few mentions along the way.

The 'weird' ones are the smartest ones, many times. It's all an act. Take Howard Stern for example
