The list of girls becoming famous via Twitter for, er, unusual reasons has just got a little longer. Following in the footsteps of the likes of Amber Cole, April Pratt and Cierra Wilson, Tiona Smith is trending in a number of countries following the release of a video in which a young woman, allegedly Smith, is seen having sex.
It seems sometimes that these videos are trying to out-do one another, so you have to wonder how extreme videos will have to be in future in order to attract this level of attention. The bar certainly seems to be being raised with each release, although the Amber Cole video (starring a 14-year-old) is still arguably the most depressing.
So while Tiona Smith takes the spotlight for a few days, someone else is probably waiting in the wings to be next on the Twitter stage. Or perhaps one of Smith’s predecessors will be back with a new video, ready to show that sometimes sequels can be just as bad as the original.
