Charity auction lets you buy celeb Twitter friends
SAN FRANCISCO — If you’ve ever wished celebrities like actress Demi Moore or skateboarder Tony Hawk would follow you on short-messaging site Twitter, now’s your chance — but you’ll have to cough up some cash for the privilege.
EBay Inc. is hosting a charity auction called TwitChange, through which people can bid to have celebrities follow them, retweet their posts or tweet their username on Twitter for three months.
Money raised from the auction, which started last week and runs through Saturday, will go to aHomeInHaiti.org and its efforts to rebuild the Miriam Center, which is based in Haiti and houses and serves special-needs children.
