Being on social media, I have noticed there are certain "twitter celebrities" or even Myspace celebrities like Tila Tequila. Thus, I wonder what makes someone into an online celebrity, does it matter, and does it help you from a professional standpoint? Perhaps I am already a celebrity here on DaniWeb? ;)

To be honest, I have never understood the concept of celebrity without grand accomplishment tied to it. This is probably the reason why I never understood the celebrity of Ashton Kutcher beyond his looks. As for Tila Tequilla, she is more of a well-publicized side show freak than a celebrity.
I consider web celebrities, people whose fame is derived from them posting photos of themselves or their inane ramblings (paging Perez Hilton), as nothing more than an annoying social disease to be avoided.
