Our #HeySTAR chat with Sarah Austin is going to be rescheduled!
Sarah Austin is one of the original Vanity Fair “American Tweethearts” gracing the cover nearly 5 years ago as the new kind of fame: “twilebrity” stardom. She produced the web series Party Crashers, where she crashed tech parties, before being selected to lifecast for the Justin.tv test runs. She later went to produce Pop17, a web series documenting Internet culture. She was also a cast member of the Bravo! reality series, Start-Ups: Silicon Valley.
Join Sarah for an hour long #HeySTAR! Twitterview on Thursday October 15th starting at 6pPT/9pET!
I love this quote from Sarah’s website ,cause it sums her up pretty well, except leaves out how beautiful and kind she is:
“Sarah Austin is one part product manager, one part data scientist, one part marketer, and 100% .”

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat.
It all started with a hunch…back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.)
I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
