Taye Diggs On Why He Follows Everyone On Twitter: A Social Media Expert Made Him Do It

By now it’s a well-known fact that if Taye Diggs doesn’t follow you on Twitter you should probably just go drown yourself in the nearest urinal, because your life is obviously worth it — Taye Diggs follows EVERYONE on Twitter (including UPROXX, so we’re safe). Just why has been a mystery…up until now. The answer: an obviously dumb “social media expert.” SHOCKING, right?!

“Everyone was telling me I needed to have more of a presence on Twitter. So I met with this dude who deals in social networks and he said instead of focusing on always disseminating information, why don’t you focus on using it as a ticker?” Diggs told Matt Lauer. “So I gave him a bunch of people that I was interested in, from athletes to people in politics, just a whole bunch of people. And then he started following people for me. And now whenever I want, I can just look at my phone and just hear what’s going on with all these people.”
