Looks like Idol producers have decided to do away with with individual twitter and facebook accounts for the Season 9 contestants. That was an experiment that didn’t last long!
The American Idol 9 contestants have been tweeting like mad today, directing contestants to follow them at a generic twitter account, @ai9contestants:
Thanks so much for following me! All my updates from now on will be on our Official Ai9 Twitter Page, please follow me there @AI9Contestants
I’m sure TPTB noticed fans keeping tally of the number of twitter and facebook followers each contestant had. The numbers did give a rough gauge of who was picking up followers at the time.
Might as well consolidate. The producers must have the kids on a short leash, because the tweets were mostly pretty lame anyway…
