Celebrities Shut Up on Twitter

Today – December 1st, 2010 – is likely to be just a little quieter on your Twitter and Facebook stream. Many celebrities have vowed to shut up on social media until one million dollars has been raised in conjunction with World Aids Day. Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Jennifer Hudson and Serena Williams, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Seacrest and many more notable people will not utter a word once they flip that almighty “silent switch” later today.

The effort will be further supported by dramatic videos featuring the celebs in what the AP describes as “lying in coffins to represent what the campaign calls their digital deaths.” Presumably, those videos will be tweeted out before the celebs sign off to raise awareness.

You can show your support by adding ribbons to your profiles, pledging money to help victims of Aids and by spreading the message of silence.
