People don't care about celebrity Twitter accounts



tbd-kimkardashian113010.jpgIt seems plenty of people are okay with Kim Kardashian being dead. Justin Timberlake, Usher and Jennifer Hudson, too. At least, that must be the case, because World AIDS Day's massive charity campaign for Alicia Keys' Keep a Child Alive has only earned a fraction of its $1 million goal after kicking off Wednesday. Could it be that Twitter isn't the most important thing on Earth?!?

Days after the kickoff of the Digital Death campaign -- in which celebrities closed down their Twitter accounts until followers contributed seven figures to to raise AIDS awareness -- the cause has brought in only about $200,000 or so (as of Friday afternoon). That's a far cry from the amount they were hoping for, and means we may be without celebs for a whole week or two, at this rate. The charity is so desperate, they even removed the $10 minimum for donations, which can be given at, or by texting a participating celebrity's name and an amount to 90999.

There's no word on how much the celebrity's themselves actually gave, but hey, lots of them, including Kim Kardashian (as pictured), Jay Sean and Elijah Wood took whole minutes out of their days to pose for photos in coffins. That had to be cheap, right? Right??
