A Social Media Agency’s Likes and Fails – 17th August – Teen Choice Awards on Twitter and #bloggerBlackmail
Teen choice awards were popular on Twitter during the show with the hashtag #TeenChoiceAwards trending for the duration of the show. The most popular moments during the show came when Fifth Harmony won the #ChoiceSummerSong award for their single Work It and the second most poular moment of the night came when Little Mix performed at the bash. Overall the most talked about celebrities were One Direction, 5SOS and Fifth Harmony. There was lots of behind the scenes action shared in the run up to the event with Rita Ora taking over the Billboard Twitter account.
There were 2.1 million tweets about the event in total. Impressive!
Recently trending hashtag #BloggerBlackmail has brought up some heated conversation around bloggers and the freebies they receive. The argument surrounds a blogger who asked to visit a bakery in return for a review on her blog. She was then upset when she visited said bakery and only received a package of 4 macarons and 4 marshmallows and a beverage of her choice. She then thought it appropriate to then instead ask for £100 worth of products for free otherwise she may not write a review or according to the bakery hinted that she would give them a bad review. To be honest she did do just that, she posted some unflattering images of the products on her instagram and she even self proclaims how good her photographs normally are. In her ‘side of the story’ blog she does admit that she was just initially angry she didn’t get her £100 of goods and so she posted the pictures in haste and has no deleted them.
Really I’m not sure the bakery really needed to name and shame and similarly I don’t think the blogger should really have expected to have the items for free, nor should she have had the cheek to ask for that much free stuff. It seems it’s all just a misunderstanding but Twitter seems to have got a kick out of it.
