Let's bid on a brush with fame

There is currently a celebrity auction going on right now called Twitchange where you can bid to have your favorite celebratory follow you on Twitter. All the money raised goes to relief efforts in Haiti. It's kind of a neat idea for people to use their celebrity for a good cause since it really requires nothing of them other than adding a name on their follow list, while peons like us can brag for the rest of their lives that they once  had a connection online with Tony Hawk or Jessica Alba. I don't have the kind of money to participate in such things, however noble the endeavor (Dana White of all people currently leads the bidding at a whopping $15,000(!)), but it's fun to look at. If you have a few extra bucks, by all means, you should go support the cause.

-A couple of observations: As exciting as it is to see the top bids, the bottom feeders are packed with some good stuff. Who knew Mint Condition was still around? let alone having a Twitter account to follow.

- This is apparently the brainchild of Eva Longoria? Who knew she would be the brains of... well, anything. Good for you, lady!

- And if anyone would like to pay me money to follow them, I would be happy to donate said money to the cause as well. Bidding starts at two pence.
