Banned from Facebook, porn stars settle for Twitter

Pin it

It's not easy being a porn star in this post-MySpace world. Ever since the masses migrated to Mark Zuckerberg's side of the internet, the actresses have had trouble finding their footing. But according to the Daily Beast, they've finally figured it out: porn stars have ditched Facebook for Twitter.

Facebook has proven hostile territory to adult stars, with many claiming their profiles are often deleted, multiple times, and for no reason they can understand. “Most porn stars have given up on Facebook at this point,” Housley says. San Dimas says, “Even if a fan posts a nude picture of you they delete your account.”

So now you know who it was throwing popcorn at the screen during The Social Network. It was porn stars! But if Twitter ever gets a movie short film, the porn stars would probably behave themselves:

One thing is clear: Twitter in the past year has transformed the way porn stars communicate—they now have the opportunity to reach fans and build followings off screen. [Porn Star Tweets founder Pete] Housley’s statistics illuminate the interactions. Porn Star Tweets tracks 990 porn stars who are followed by 9,140,066 users; the porn stars follow back 636,853 fans. On average, the stars tweet 6.7 times per day; seven percent of Porn Star Tweets contain a photo or video. In total, Housley says, “In 2010 we aggregated over 3 million tweets and 250,000 photos and videos.”

One of the naughty tweets that the Daily Beast highlights came from Bree Olson's Twitter, which read, "If I knew who my real dad was, I'd totally fuck him. Are you my real daddy? Did you make any love children in '86?"

So that's what Facebook's missing out on. Is this a sign that Twitter will one day overtake Facebook, that people will opt for a more uncensored platform? Porn certainly has a lot of say — the reason we have Blu-ray is because the industry backed it instead of HD DVD. Also, is 3D porn going to be insane or what? So many questions.
