LAS VEGAS—Porn Star Tweet launches four years ago today on Feb. 22, 2009. Upon launch, the website followed 17 porn stars including Stoya, Jenna Haze, Devon Lee and a handful of others. Today the social media aggregator follows nearly 1,700 porn stars.
PornStarTweet.com also has grown to operate 10 other niche sites focused on different sectors of adult entertainment including gay, BBW, transsexual, alt, and cam cirls, as well as a thriving mainstream networks focused on sports, music, celebrities, politicians and entertainment.
"What started as a marketing gimmick four years ago has turned into a full fledged business," PornStarTweet.com founder and CEO Pete Housley said. "I look back over the past four years, it's really humbling to recall all of the amazing support we've received from stars, sponsors, media and most of all fans around the world."
The Naughty Tweet Network, of which PornStarTweet.com is the anchor site, boasts over 400,000 followers on social media and tens of thousands of clicks daily to its network of websites. Both Porn Star Tweet and the network as a whole have seen media attention from both the adult and mainstream worlds since their inception. Housley has spoken on numerous adult industry and mainstream panels about social media, and the company owes much of its success to a strong consulting team.
For the third year in a row Porn Star Tweet will sponsor the forthcoming series of Exxxotica Expo shows starting with the April show in Atlantic City, N.J.
"Being 'social' is more than just sending out Tweets and posting on your Facebook," company COO TJ Little said. "What's made us different is we get out from behind the keyboard to throw epic parties, sponsor consumer expos and truly participate in the industry."
The company recently celebrated a major milestone with its annual coverage of the 2013 AVN Awards red carpet. A contingent of the team lead by Ash Hollywood and sponsored by mainstream app Highlight Cam provided live social media coverage with photos and videos to more than 60 million views around the world—a sharp increase over its 2012 coverage.
"Social media changes every day," said Denise Kraft, Porn Star Tweet's director of new business development. "We are constantly looking at the next new thing and it shows in the options we can bring to the table to our consulting and advertising clients as well as our sponsors. We've been able to work with some of the biggest companies in the adult business over the last four years and we continue to grow and extend our services portfolio."
