Billionaire's Donation Ends Celeb Twitter Blackout

Kim Kardashian, Lady GaGa, Alicia Keys and others have been resurrected from their digital death thanks to billionaire (with a B) pharmaceutical mogul Stewart Rahr.

The campaign was to raise $1 million for the Keep A Child Alive foundation by having a number of celebrities stop tweeting. The point of the campaign was if you wanted your favourite celebrity back on Twitter, you would have to donate money to see them back on. That is, of course, once $1 million was raised.

The campaign was not doing so well, and there were concerns (or hopes in some cases) that the celebrities were not going to come back in a long time. TMZ revealed billionaire-man Stewart Rahr very generously donated $500,000 so that we could see Kim Kardashian tweet her ass off. That’s a lot of tweeting.

If it weren’t going to such a good cause, I might suggest we tar and feather Mr. Rahr, but his heart was in the right place.
