Lady Gaga is just one of many stars quitting Twitter in the name of AIDs Relief.
Superstar singer Gaga who has five million followers on the social networking site will be joined by Justin Timberlake, Usher and a rash of other celebs in pledging to “die digitally” on Twitter and Facebook in order to draw attention to the HIV/AIDS crisis on World AIDS Day.
Alicia Keys, the driving force behind the campaign has also convinced Lady Gaga et al to post shocking “last tweet and testament” video ads showing them lying in coffins.
Keys has launched the “Digital Life Sacrifice” on behalf of her charity Keep A Child Alive and aims to raise $1 million via online donations.
Keep a Child Alive is dedicated to providing life-saving AIDS
treatment, care and support services to children and families affected
by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
“It’s really important and super-cool to use mediums that we naturally are on,” said Keys. “As a human being, you deserve to have a chance at life,” she said.
Lady Gaga are not expected to resume Tweeting and Facebooking until the campaign’s target has been met.
