Kim Kardashian also digitally resurrected

Like a phoenix from the binary ashes, Kim Kardashian, Khloe, Alicia Keys and other participating celebrities have risen from their digital grave after their Digital Death campaign finally reached the proposed $1 million mark.

Of course, this was only after they “persuaded” (read: lots of bjs) billionaire pharmaceutical executive Stewart Rahr to donate $500,000 so they could return to Twitter and Facebook.

Celebs such as Kim, who make as much as $10,000 per tweet, greatly overestimated their Twitter presence and were getting nervous when it didn’t look like they’d meet their mark in less than a week.

Sources said the organization expected to raise the $1 million in a week. But by yesterday, after six days, it had taken in only about $450,000. Stars including Kim Kardashian, who can earn about $10,000 a tweet, started getting itchy fingers. One source blamed servers that crashed for 12 hours on the first night for the slow-paced donations. Others blamed lack of promotion and overestimating the participants’ Twitter power. Another source said, “Some stars thought the money would be raised in 24 hours, and were embarrassed that critics said it proves nobody cares about their Twitter presence.”

A screenshot taken yesterday showed they were only at $300,000 but Page Six says they were at $450,000. That extra $150,000 must have come in one day from someone and then the other $500,000 from the billionaire. That is to say. Phew. Now we can get back to Kim and Khloe underhandedly promoting products on Twitter. How did I ever survive without that?

The Digital Death campaign was a unique way to raise money for charity but at least that money will go to a great cause. Thank you for sharing.
