The Dalai Lama on Twitter… Nope, just a case of Brand Jacking

February 9, 2009

Within 24hrs of announcing his Twitter account, the Dalai Lama has amassed 13,450 followers… Surely that must have set a new Twitter record!

Why choose Twitter: “His Holiness thought it was prudent to make his office open and assessable to a more youth and technologically advancing audience.” So now there really is no excuses for anyone saying they can’t be bothered or don’t get Twitter!

BUT AU CONTRAIRE: This is a fake profile that was pulled by Twitter yesterday, click here for more info. Reminds me of the Exxon Mobil Corp Branding Jacking case I wrote about in my You Don’t Know Jack post. All the more reason for the Dalia Lama to have an ID Gator account!
