|I look forward to adding Slow West to my Blu-ray collection.|
I was interacting with someone on Twitter yesterday after I tweeted about how some
Michael is not obligated to have a social media presence to be pestered by his fanbase, just because some of them are obsessed to the point where they make up stuff about him just to bicker with one another. All one needs to do is refer to Tom Hiddleson's greatly diminished twitter presence to see that for some celebrities, having a twitter account can do more harm to one's PR than good. Every time that man tweeted something, some deranged dingbats would write rude comments. Frankly, there are just too many unstable people out there in the world, and celebrities take a risk by creating a social media presence, and thereby, indirectly invite these questionable people into their lives. The overwhelming majority of Michael Fassbender fans are good, normal people - it's just the few rotten apples that he has to protect himself from. I've lost count of how many celebrities I read about who had to delete their twitter accounts due to the horrible behavior by supposed fans. I don't want Michael Fassbender to be one of them.
As much as I consider myself a social media professional and enjoy interacting with family, friends, and my worldwide audience - having a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account is not for everyone, or for every celebrity. We already know that Michael claims to be not so on top of technology - not that he's a technophobe either, but it's obvious that he just doesn't need twitter and for that, I'm very happy.
Lastly, to address a casting rumor regarding Assassin's Creed, it has been confirmed that Michael's gal pal Alicia Vikander will not be in the film, which is scheduled to start filming in London in September. Instead, she'll be in the next Bourne film starring Matt Damon. I love those Bourne movies!
