I just want everyone to know it’s not REALLY William Shatner on Twitter, Facebook, or now Tumblr.
It’s fun to pretend it’s him, but it’s not. He just hired some good social media person/people.
At Dragon Con last year he said something along the lines of: “I’ll be honest, I have no idea what ‘Twitter’ is. I don’t know what you do on there. All I know is I have one. So I tell people what to say if I need to get some message out.”
Trust me, he doesn’t use social media. He doesn’t have the time or probably the care to tweet and FB and Google+ and post constantly. He hired someone.
I honestly bet George Takei isn’t really posting anything either. I’m sure sometimes he does, and I’m sure he’s more involved than Mr. Shatner, but honestly, you really can’t get me to believe that’s really them.
