Justin Bieber Helps Matt Lauer Join Twitter


By Shari Weiss



Justin Bieber wasn’t just a guest on Friday’s “Today Show.” He was also a Twitter teacher for anchor Matt Lauer, who just joined the social media site.

Without knowing how to send out his first tweet, Lauer gave his iPhone to The Biebs, who instead of just firing off a regular first message, used the opportunity to once again plug his upcoming “Believe” album.

“Hello. Everyone go buy Justin bieber’s album #believe coming out June 19th,” read the tweet.

Within minutes of the singer using his own account to announce the arrival of “@mlauer,” the “Today Show” host became a trending topic and amassed tens of thousands of followers.

Check out the video below of Lauer’s full interview with Bieber, and see why the anchor wants to have 750,000 followers by Tuesday.
