Ash­ton puts Voice in the tweet spot

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

In so far as any news about Twit­ter is worth heed­ing, a di­vert­ing punch-up has been tak­ing place be­tween the Vil­lage Voice and Ash­ton Kutcher, who re­cently took part in an ad­ver­tise­ment rais­ing aware­ness about child pros­ti­tu­tion. The ad ar­gued that as many as 100,000300,000 chil­dren be­come pros­ti­tutes ev­ery year. The New York mag­a­zine pointed out that, over the past decade, there have been only a lit­tle over 8,000 ar­rests for the rel­e­vant of­fence in the US. Kutcher tweeted: “Hey


@vil­lagevoice, speak­ing of data, maybe you can help me . . . How much $ did your ‘es­corts’ in your clas­si­fied on back­page make last year?” Not a bad point, ac­tu­ally.
