Last Sunday we at AMC News did some crack investigative work to break a major story — via Twitter — that went national today on talk-show television.
At the premiere of Monsters vs Aliens at Universal Studios Hollywood, after taking a Twitpic with Rainn Wilson, whose @rainnwilson Twitter account has upwards of 200,000 followers, I wanted to do the same with Seth Rogen. Rogen, who had a following of nearly 15,000 people on Twitter, told me when I asked that he doesn’t actually tweet, much less do any social networking.
So, I sent a note over to @realsethrogen via @amcnews, who had been posing as the Observe & Report star for quite some time, to see what the deal was. He didn’t write me back, but just yesterday the account lost all its followers, and whomever is behind the account now has posted this account of what happened. According to @realsethrogen, we broke the story that Rogen himself discussed today on Regis & Kelly.
Take a look at the video for more.
