Do you ever draft a tweet but wonder to yourself “Oh, I don’t know about this one, but I wish Katy Perry was here to help me?” Well, if that’s keeping you wide awake, you can now rest easy because the singer-cum-social media ninja has released her guidelines on proper Internet usage.
In a something (guess we’ll call it an interview?) with USA Today the sparkly bb said her millions of followers have taught her to the proper way to “tame that social media dragon” that comes roaring out of all of us.
She’s careful to avoid typos (“there” and “your” are her two biggest problems), warns not to be self-promotional since all of our albums are going to automatically be enormous successes like hers and never drunk tweet you dumb teen.
It’s really an illuminating read from the future Mashable guest columnist. There’s a portion about dealing with “haters” and how NOT to use social media when it comes to fighting back against rumors:
“I see a lot of celebrities send out messages like that online, and I think, ‘Sweetheart, nobody knows about this so-called issue because we don’t have you on Google Alert. You’re just throwing another log on the fire.’ I do it only in extreme cases if someone is jeopardizing my character.”
Great, but what about checking Klout scores? Is that gauche too, Katy?
