Wednesday 04 November 2009
On the morning of November 3 people on Twitter are making up humorous titles for unmade movie prequels.
A few of the movie prequel titles people are suggesting on the microblogging site include, "Black Hawk Flying," "The Bourne Polite Request," "1st, 2nd 3rd and 4th Element," "Reservoir Pups," "The W Files" and "An American Werewolf Stuck at Customs."
Canadian singer Justin Bieber has taken to his Twitter and MySpace accounts to promote his latest single, "Favorite Girl." On November 3 Justin Bieber wrote via Twitter, "FAVORITE GIRL is on ITUNES NOW!!!!"
The 15-year-old pop singer is no stranger to the powers of social media marketing. In 2007 Bieber's mother posted videos of the young singer on video hosting site YouTube. The videos were an instant hit within the YouTube community. They also caught the attention of Bieber's current manager, Scooter Braun, who flew the youngster to Atlanta where he signed a deal with Island records.
