And Kim Kardashian’s one-year-old has a favorite Snapchat filter.
Can’t keep up with what’s been going on in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what stars, artists and brands have been up to this week on social media.
The Mooch Follows…
From deleting long-ago, offending tweets about his current boss President Donald Trump, to giving a profanity-laden interview with the New Yorker, new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has had quite a first week on the job, so we decided to take a dive into his social media habits. He follows 168K Twitter users (and rising, Trump is the tweeter-in-chief, after all) — and looking at a sample population of 3,000 users he follows, some interesting groups popped up. While the former Wall Streeter doesn’t follow former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, there are plenty of interesting accounts to check out: New York socialites Tinsley Mortimer, Marjorie Gubelmann and Harley Viera-Newton (he was at Goldman Sachs, after all); Vogue Japan senior fashion editor Giovanna Battaglia; artisanal soda brands (Jones Soda, Soda Stream and L.A. favorite Galcos Soda Pop Stop); and the plenty of arts organizations, including the Smithsonian’s array of Twitter accounts, a multitude of Russian libraries that tweet in Cyrillic, plus the Playboy Playmates (to keep him grounded?). But, when you follow that many users, what are you even seeing in your feed? A mess, ironically.
Bey’s Bump Bumped Her Back Up
Since Beyonce shared a much-awaited photo of twins Sir Carter and Rumi, the singer has climbed back up Billboard’s Social 50 Chart to the top 10. Billboard reports on data tracked by Next Big Sound, which measures engagement on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Wikipedia and Tumblr.
Brie Larson’s All-In for Halo Top
Halo Top. The new, heavenly alternative to frozen yogurt, a 240 to 360-calorie ice cream that comes in 17 flavors (red velvet, oatmeal cookie, black cherry to name a few) is popping up all over Instagram as the new way to indulge without the bulge. Big in L.A. and New York City, the ice cream boasts a protein-enriched, low-sugar, low-card, low-fat product with no growth hormones (and lots of celebrity fans).
Gloria Steinem’s First Official T-Shirt
Feminism and fashion have become fast friends since the election, and it was only a matter of time before Gloria Steinem, 83, feminist icon and leader, who was honored in June by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, released her first limited edition charity T-shirt ($24.99). It features the famous fist-up-in-the-air photo with Dorothy Pitman Hughes. All proceeds go to the ERA Coalition, leading “the resurged movement for the Equal Rights Amendment.” Don’t sleep on getting a shirt if you want one — the online store closes in 11 days.
Saint West’s Favorite Snapchat Filter
When your mother is Kim Kardashian, it makes sense that, even as a baby, you learn the social media ropes quicker than most. Saint West, a tender one-year-old, appeared on Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat playing with the app’s mask filters, even saying the word “dinosaur.”
