The CelebMix Twitter Fandom Awards 2017 came to a close recently and the voting was a huge success. We would like to send our congrats to all of the dedicated, hard-working accounts nominated, especially the winners for each category.
For the best Little Mix fan account, UpdatingLM rose to the top of the leaderboard and was crowned our winner.
We had the absolute pleasure to talk to UpdatingLM on everything from the creation of their account to the most shocking news they ever had to update. Keep reading to find out more on our lovely 2017 Twitter Fandom winner.
Q: What made you want to start an updating account?
My main reason for making an update account was just seeing other fandoms having update accounts and thinking “I wonder if I could do something like that for Little Mix”.
Q: Has being the owner of @UpdatingLM affected your life in any way? If so, how?
In a way, owning @UpdatingLM
has affected my life because I like to be on top with any updates and other news, so I wake up at strange hours to update when Little Mix are in other countries.
Q: What does being an update account owner mean to you?
I love having an update account because I get to interact with more people than I ever did when I used to just have general fan accounts. I also really like being able to have an account that people come to for information, news, pictures, and more.
Q: What do you enjoy most about being a part of @UpdatingLM?
The thing I most enjoy about @UpdatingLM
is occassionally being able to help people meet Little Mix and just generally being able to help with fan voting, requesting, streaming, etc.
Q: What do you love most about Little Mix?
My favourite thing about the girls is probably just how real they are with everything. The songs that they write (particularly Little Me and Change Your Life) resonate with so many people and it’s amazing to see how involved Little Mix are in different aspects of the group.
Q: What Little Mix news, that you had to update, did you find the most shocking? the most exciting?
I think the most shocking would have to be the Perrie/Zayn split. It kind of just came out of nowhere and no one knew whether to believe the article or not. My mentions were very interesting on that day! The most exciting was probably Little Mix winning British Single at the BRITs or Glory Days reaching #1.
Q: Do you like to collaborate with any other accounts? If you haven’t collaborated with anyone, would you like to collaborate with any other accounts?
I think Little Mix update accounts all really enjoy working together. There’s a few group DM’s that we have to club together and promote the girls, organise streaming parties, and stuff like that.
Q: Has their ever been a point where you wanted to delete ? If so, what made you keep the account in the end?
I’ve never necessarily wanted to delete the account but there’s definitely times that I’ve tried to stay away from the account for a while…it never lasts for long though because there’s always something going on that I like to keep up with!
Q: What was your first reaction when you found out fans of your account had nominated you to win a CelebMix Twitter Fandom Award?
I was really grateful to see that people do enjoy my account and wanted to show how much they do like my account.
Q: Where do you see @UpdatingLM in the upcoming years? Do you have any goals for the account?
My only hope is that @UpdatingLM
continues to grow as Little Mix do! It would be really exciting to reach 30,000 followers one day. I think that would be an amazing milestone to reach.
Q: Do you have anything to say to the fans of your account and the people that nominated or voted for you?
I just want to say a big thank you to anyone that got involved in the CelebMix Twitter Fandom Awards. Being able to see that people appreciate the time that I spend on the account, in order for it to be as good as it can be, is really lovely!
Everyone here at CelebMix wants to wish UpdatingLM a massive congratulations on the win and we can’t wait to see what your account achieves in the future. We recognize all your hard work and dedication put into making your account the best it can be.
