My attempt to get a famous woman to jump into my direct messages is still not going incredibly well.
Here are the rules for anybody who might have forgotten:
1) The woman must have at least a million followers on social media.
2) I am not allowed to contact them first. They must contact me first. Obviously the whole purpose of this would be defeated if I sent the initial message. Messages can come through on any platform. Twitter, E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), Facebook or however they get it to me.
3) It must be completed before April 18, 2018. I turn 26 on April 17, and we’ve agreed on this deadline for this experiment.
Things aren’t off to a hot start at all, and we’re approaching the deadline at a pace that seems pretty rapid. I sat down to discuss the situation with my co-worker Vince Coglianese, and explain how this situation might develop over the next couple months.
I thought maybe Taylor Swift or Jennifer Lawerence would show up in the DMs. At the very least I expected a variety of slightly less famous women. Instead, I’ve got a porn star and some people that use the word famous to describe would be a pretty big stretch.
