Celebrities leverage their online brand value with Twitter’s BlueRoom


Mumbai: Twitter taught us how to spill our hearts online in just 140 characters and now it is teaching celebrities to do the same through one on one interactions with their fans, The social media giant has finally gone public with its much awaited feature, #BlueRoom. Continuing its service of bringing fans and celebrities together, the platform has introduced Blue Room in India that allows fans to interact with their favourite celebs not only through tweets but in real life as well.

“The #BlueRoom is a special spot to host interviews, Q&As, performances and more, so you can expect to see a even more of your favourite sports stars, film and TV talent, and music artists direct from the #BlueRoom,” read twitter India’s official blog announcing the launch.

In a world which is ruled by likes, favorites and shares, it is essential for celebrities to keep their online popularity up. Blue Room also gives an opportunity to celebrities to increase their online presence and interact with their fans in a more connected way.

“Any kind of initiative is good news for celebrities as it puts them directly in accessible range of audiences, which is extremely important in this digital age. Whether it is music album launches or any kind of announcements, we see more and more celebrities choosing social media and other digital platform to relay such informations to their fans. If you are not interacting with your fans through facebook or Twitter you are losing out on a lot of fanbase,” shared popular celebrity management agency CAA Kwan founding partner Indranil Das Blah.

In terms of brand value as well, it is important for celebrities to maintain their online presence and leverage it with fan engagements. “More and more brands are looking at the digital space for marketing themselves. And therefore naturally looking out for a digital footprint to grow. It helps to have a brand ambassador who has a digital footprint in place already,” pointed out Blah.

Blue Room may have gone public only now but several actors, musicians, chefs, CEOs and sports stars have already tried out the Blue Room at twitter’s office in India. Actors Kalki Koechlin (@kalkikanmani) and Karan Tacker (@karantacker) kicked off some of the first @video Q&As in the #BlueRoom using #AskKalki and #AskKaran.

Several excited fans sent out questions to the actress, some even asking her to carry out funny challenges as well:

Look who's joining us in the #BlueRoom very shortly! Tweet your questions to #AskKalki & @kalkikanmani will reply https://twitter.com/kalkikanmani/status/735353594875105280
