Look back to the years when people were all the time listening to their radios with the typical speaking style of that time. Then came the television which changed how people spent their leisure time. Looking at how trends have become today, it really becomes very difficult to imagine that people lived like that and simply we say “There is no life without internet, Mobile and blah blah blah…”
Imagine your life with no facebooks and twitters around you. What would you have been doing now instead of reading this, if there were no internet. I will keep giving so many clauses to think over, lets leave this aside and come directly to the point.
Twitter has been becoming a rage all over the internet, with celebrities, Politicians, Sportsmen and even government organisations joining the race to tweet. Is there still something new to be added or experimented with this 140-character game? The answer is YES.
Till now you must have heard terms like DJ (Disc Jockey), VJ (Video Jockey) and when I mention these lets take RJ (Radio Jockey) also. They seem exciting jobs with cameras and publicity and what not, which made you want to be an MTV VJ. Come on man, you are talking about a thing of the past now.
MTV has come up with a unique competition in which they are searching for an MTV TJ. Now you might be thinking, what is a TJ?
