So that wasn't a sponsored tweet?

First of all sorry for not doing a post yesterday. I was planning on doing a thanksgiving edition post. But it was thanksgiving and I had NO time. Hopefully today's post will make up for that ;).

So earlier today, Blair tweeted Raved about some Jewelery company that I had never even heard of:

This is obviously a sponsored tweet. You don't go and rave about a company that no one has heard of, then say that you shouldn't get confused over the sign up, then say that they are having a big sale! She didn't fut "(Ad)" at the end of the tweet, so she could get in a lot of trouble for that. She then denies that it wasn't a sponsored tweet after lots of people, including me, called her out on it:


Really? It wasn't a sponsored tweet? Are you sure sweetheart? Because it sure sounded like on ;).

What do YOU think? Is it a sponsored tweet? Or was it really just her raving about a company we've never heard of?

  3. I want to squeeze the life out of a stress ball when Kalel mispronounces things. This week it's "dazzle" - she says DAH-zle. Like PAHL-et (palette) and metHAL-ic (metallic) . What is with that? Does it bother anyone else, or am I alone in my psychosis? lol ;)

  4. Hmm. It'd be stupid of her to shout that out if it really was sponsored, because now it's getting face time and she'd be at a greater risk of getting in trouble. However she may just be working with the company. That is different than a sponsored tweet. If she is not directly getting paid for the tweet, it's not technically an ad.

    However I hope if I was ever 'famous' I'd still be aloud to share/rave about new things I liked. :(
