    Howard Stern discussing using Twitter. Does this maniac really believe he's providing "free content" every time he tweets? And by "them" he must be referring to all of his "white trash" fans. Leads me to believe that he thinks his tweets have value and we should have to pay to read his wildly entertaining and profound words.

    Yes, I just can't get enough pictures of hotel room ceilings. He really should take better advantage of such a potential cash cow.

    Twitter Sim Cards, Robin. Hoo hoo.

    It all balances out because subscribers give him buckets of free money for nothing.

    Does he understand he's using a FREE service for this "content"? Twitter didn't ask for him, nor do they need him. There are enough self-absorbed people (both famous and not) who are addicted to telling the world about their every brain fart.

    Well, it is true that anyone with a Twitter account with followers, provides free content for Twitter. Howard generates traffic and content every time he tweets. Weather or not that is valuable is another question, but there is no question that him writing on Twitter is providing content for it and generating traffic.

    I'm pretty sure when he said "them", he was referring to the end user & not Twitter.

    Twitter provides a place for celebs to get free advertizing. Plain and simple.

    No doubt, didn't even think from that angle...makes his comment even more brazen.
