Porn Stars Flock to Twitter

Practically everyone in the industry is tweeting for a little self-promotion

Let’s see . . . Who to follow on Twitter? Political candidates? Check. Top comedians? Done. Favorite porn stars? Uh . . . 

An estimated 90 percent of porn stars are on the social media site, promoting themselves 140 characters at a time, CNN reports.

“Twitter has opened up these porn stars’ fan bases like nothing the adult-film industry has ever seen before,” XBiz managing editor Dan Miller tells the network. “Since most mainstream, pop-culture publications don’t cover the porn industry [and] porn movie reviews don’t generally appear alongside reviews of big Hollywood movies . . . the adult industry has embraced Twitter as a way to reach out directly to fans beyond the typical porn consumer.”

One star to consider following, CNN suggests, is James Deen (@JamesDeen), who will co-star with Lindsay Lohan in an upcoming, non-porn movie.

“I think a lot of the mainstream thing has to do with Twitter,” he tells the network. “People look at me and they say, ‘He’s not a porn star, he’s just a nice guy.’ ”

Of course, his Twitter bio reads: “my name is james i am a simple guy who likes to eat sleep and watch tv... oh ya i also bang chicks for a living :-)”

Yep, just a nice guy.
