Excuse us for saying something a bit outlandish here – but Grace Helbig is pretty much the Queen of YouTube, amirite? With a New York Times best-selling book, her own successful late night talk show on E! and not one but TWO movies under her belt, Grace has used her time on the Internet incredibly well. But somehow, she just got even better.
Last night, Grace hosted one of your typical ‘ask me a bunch of questions and I’ll respond either now or in a video coming soon’ Twitter trends which inevitably made it into the top trends for the whole country. However, Ms Helbig ran this particular Q&A session with a truly innovative and inspiring twist – she was answering your questions via Twitter video!
Nearly everyday there seems to be a new trend either on Facebook or Twitter because a YouTuber is hosting another Q&A session for a video they’re about to film or because they’re stuck in an airport and are just plain bored. But how often have your YouTube faves ever sat and filmed a personal video response just for yourself?! Never, that’s the answer.
Livestream’s and YouNow sessions are SO last year, especially now it’s possible to speak directly with your YouTube faves on a 1-to-1 basis via Twitter! The overwhelming reaction on Twitter more than proved how influential and desirable this new Twitter Q&A trend was and we honestly cannot wait for the next Twitter takeover! If you still don’t believe us, check out some of Grace’s video responses below and see for yourself!
So yeah, Grace is taking over the world and upping her Q&A game at the same time! We fully expect other YouTube and Vine creators to test out this new format, and perhaps even traditional media celebrities will try it out as well! Keep your eyes peeled on the trends people, your fave is just a click away!
