'Idols' online: Where to find the Top 13 on Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace

Posted on

Image Credit: Michael Becker/FoxGet ready, America: Thirteen photogenic songbirds are now poised to take over the Internet. Yes, that’s right — American Idol has launched official Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace accounts for each of its finalists. Though the Myspace pages are currently all but empty — chances are that’ll change after audio from tomorrow’s live show gets posted — and their Facebook pages are also, generally speaking, fairly bare, most members of the top 13 are already tweeting up a storm. Here’s a rundown of where to find each of the finalists online, how popular each of their sites is so far, and what you can expect from each singer’s Twitter stream.
