What a relief! Five days after Alicia Keys enlisted celebrity friends — including Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake — to swear off social networks until $1 million had been donated to the Keep a Child Alive charity, a fund that supports AIDS-afflicted housholds in Africa and India, the Twitter embargo has come to a halt! The charity’s website states that the total stands at $125 over the goal, meaning that all the celebrities involved can tweet to their hearts’ content. Check out the Twitter list we made of all the participating celebrities and finally end your Ryan Seacrest withdrawal!
The press release is below:
With your help we raised over $1,000,000 to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa and India. Your generous donations will help bring critical care and medicine to the millions affected by this horrible disease. But so many more still need help. Please continue to BUY LIFE – the one thing none of us can alive [sic] without.
$1 million for AIDS relief is undoubtedly a good thing, but for those of you getting used to a Gaga-less Twitterverse, you’re out of luck.
