You thought babies capturing the market on style blogs was ridiculous — well, meet the next generation of fame monster infants who are about to blow up your twitter feeds.
From NY Mag:
Harper Estelle Wolfeld-Gosk has 6,282 Twitter followers. She's 2 weeks old. The daughter of Today show correspondent Jenna Wolfe (58,610 followers) and NBC News correspondent Stephanie Gosk (12,356 followers), Harper was registered for an account at birth by her moms to "give her a little voice in the loud world of social media," said Jenna. "Didn't know if anyone would follow her tweets, but I figured she'd have at least two loyal followers — her mother and me. Turns out, she's pretty funny. Guess it was all that amniotic fluid." The tweets are written in the infant's voice: "First doc appt tdy. Big success," reads the second one. "Pooped AND pee'd on Dr's changing table. Everyone laughed. Will have to try that again tmrw at home."
Maybe I'm just a barren hag (and how!), but I miss the days when Sockington was the only non-adult-human with access to Twitter. It's fine to sit on your kid's Twitter account, but to establish a loyal following by tweeting in baby voice before they can even sit upright is Creep City, population: Creep Parents.
Who knows though? If I ever pop out a lil' bunion of my own, maybe I'll be typing gibberish into the computer machine fwaster twhan you can sway cutie patootie shoot me in the face.
