The person behind 50 Cent's popular Twitter account has emerged, alleging the rapper has assistance with the latest social networking tool.
With over 200,000 followers, Fif's associate Chris Romero is reportedly responsible for the G-Unit leader's Twitter presence.
On March 1, he shared this insight with the more than 200,000 people who follow him: "My ambition leads me through a tunnel that never ends." Those were 50 Cent's words, but it was not exactly him tweeting. Rather, it was Chris Romero, known as Broadway, the director of the rapper's Web empire, who typed in those words after reading them in an interview. "He doesn't actually use Twitter," Mr. Romero said of 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, "but the energy of it is all him." (New York Times)
Fif's Twitter followers have grown over the past month as he's kept fans in-tune with his rap beef with Rick Ross.
"Tia told me....," Fif previously wrote unmodified. "New video "A Psychic Told Me" - DJ Khaled Diss...New Diss Song - 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, and Tony Yayo - "I'll Be The Shooter"...Check this video!! Never seen before music video of "Creep." (50 Cent's Twitter)
Kanye West recently revealed the hired staff he uses for his popular daily blog.
"I might [blog for] two hours in a day, it might be fifteen minutes in a day," Ye said in an interview. "I have two people that I hired and I tell them exactly what I want -- it's just like how a designer would work. I tell them, yo know, Surface Magazine, Wallpaper, Architectural Digest, Hypebeast, Bossip, go to these different blogs and keep on pulling information. And then they send it to me, and I get like 80 e-mails, and I have to check and go through them. And sometimes I'll have my own stuff where I'll just be in a cool place, like if I had mycamera right now, I'd like photograph this stuff and go home and be really excited to blog it."

Ye was previously questioned last summer after reports of a ghost blogger emerged.
Sure Kanye wrote that one outburst on his blog, but no, he doesn't find all those neat gadgets or post those videos and photos from the road. Someone else does all that for him. That someone else is Marcus Troy, Kanye's "Ghost Blogger" - a term Marcus coined to describe the service he provides for a few celebrity blogs. If you ask Marcus whether he ghost writes for Kanye, of course he'll deny it. Because that's what ghost writers do: they stay in the cut while giving others the glory. (Sandra Rose)
