For a young 10-year-old girl, sometime a “simple” tweet can be a life defining/changing event if the tweet was from Lady Gaga. CBC News is reporting that Maria Aragon will duet with Lady Gaga in Toronto on March 3rd. Maria must be so thrilled now. Twitter, YouTube, and social media tools have bring stars and their fans so much closer.

P.S. On a personal note. I still remember only less than two years ago that many reporters don’t have Facebook account and don’t use social media tools. Now, traditional news media often report news initiated from the social media.
