I am not a huge award show fan, unless its something exciting such as the VMA’s or the Grammys. So, because I obviously did not watch the Oscars, I had the pleasure of updating my Twitter feed to find that I couldnt escape the Oscars. The only reason I know that “The Artist” was one of the biggest winners was because of Twitter. Almost every trending hashtag was about the red carpet, the movies, the celebrities on the red carpet, or just the awards in general. Ive noticed that this happens often, if there is an event or something going on with celebrities, Twitter is Live-Tweeting the entire thing. Other than watching it on basically every channel, you read about it on your feed. Social Media is more powerful than a lot of people may think.
