Juanes Celebrates 5 Years of Twitter!

Colombian singer Juanes is an avid tweeter, and if you don't follow him yet you really should. His Twitter gives all of his fans an authentic glimpse into the life of the international pop star. Juanes recently told reporters that he mainly relies on the internet for information and communication because “With Facebook, Myspace and Twitter, we can connect with our fans directly, without intermediaries," he says. "You know where the people who listen to you are, how old they are, what city they live in.”

“Now everything is immediate," Juanes continued. "Twitter sends information super fast and you get an answer instantly. It is something that is changing not only the music industry but the way we live.” Juanes was the first Hispanic artist to grant an interview with fans from Facebook headquarters and is currently in the middle of his extensive U.S. tour for his new album P.A.R.C.E. “They [fans] want more than music. You have to understand what is happening with the music industry,” says Juanes. No wonder he's so popular! Check him out in Twitter's 5th anniversary video below:
