The Ashton Kutcher Experiment

      Yesterday I saw Ashton Kutcher on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Game Day and he was talking about Twitter.  Jimmy joked that "in his spare time [Ashton] invented Twitter" because he is so active on the social networking site.  But Ashton is pretty good about it, and he talked about how he wants to have one follower in each country and how he uses Twitter as a social tool and not just for self promotion, like I do.  The part I seized on was when he said that he actually read all the tweets he sees and tries to respond to his followers.  So I started following him and sent him a message.
     Now, I do like Ashton Kutcher, and I do honestly believe that he himself responds to some of the tweets that come in from his followers.  The problem is that I don't believe that there is a way that he can actually respond to every tweet.  I mean, the man has over five million followers for Goodness' sake, so there is no way that anyone could respond to every tweet of every one of those followers.  But I sent him a tweet and I want to see how long it takes him to respond to it, or even if he does.  Stay tuned for more details as the Ashton Kutcher Twitter Experiment continues in the future.
