Diddy Hoping That The Power Of Prayer Will Help People Forgive Him For The Whole Ma$e Thing

Serial self-promoter Sean “Diddy” Combs is on a mission, and that mission is to garner a million followers on the microblogging service Twitter. Well, it was anyway; he reached the seven-figure mark a few hours ago. But apparently some people are not too fond of this effort, and have decided to counter his campaign by enumerating reasons why he’s annoying while telling people to not follow him! (A sampling of rationales: “saying ‘this too shall pass’ in a pop song”; “bringing mase into our lives”; “not eating that cheesecake after Da Band walked the bridge.”) Diddy has decided to take on his critics in the only way he knows how: Yes, that’s right, he’s posting Bible verses, with the always-important admonishment to follow his Twitter appended… even though his updates are actually not readable to anyone who’s already following him. Whoops. Anyway, this entertained me mostly because I’ve spent the last 10 minutes imagining what the world would have been like if Oral Roberts hadn’t retired before the Twitter age fell upon us.Diddy [Twitter]
