Yes, Ellen DeGeneres’ Twitter Account is a cool one. About 4+ million people agree, and we have to say that of all the celebrity accounts out there, it is one of the better ones around.

We were joking around last week on Twitter, saying that we should try to use the power of Twitter to start getting additional appearances for Fernando Varela, since he is getting a nice, genuine following on Twitter. Let’s test Twitter out and just say it: We want to use Twitter to get Fernando on The Ellen Show. Simple as that. His voice and presence would make for a great appearance and the whole social media angle would be ideal.

So, we started to tweet and just say: Hey, @TheEllenShow, this is a blatant tweet to get @fernandovarela onto your show. It was just a joke, having a little fun. But then it was interesting to see that people in our stream got excited about this and began to RT it. And RT it a few more times. The support was amazing, and people from our Twitter stream just basically said that yes, Fernando needs to be on The Ellen Show.

Social media as booking agent? As organic PR? Would it even matter? They never check things like that… we’re just like everyone else who tries to get attention.

Well, Fernando was able to get on the radar screen when @TheEllenShow followed him today, which was totally cool. He is now part of @TheEllenShow’s “select few” of 23,000 following. Thanks! So maybe, just maybe, they are watching him now.

Psst, he really can sing… Really. An incredibly talented singer. #1 version of “Por ti volaré” on iTunes. His fans love him on Twitter. This could be the entertainment story of the year. @TheEllenShow discovers @fernandovarela via Twitter.

So if you feel that social media is powerful, leave a comment here and let us know that you want Fernando Varela on The Ellen Show? Please?
