Blake Shelton Says Twitter Has No Impact on Sales

Country singer tells CMA mag that if he offends folks on Twitter, it has no effect on the bottom line.

Yeah, Blake might throw around some bad language on Twitter, he definitely has amused hundreds of thousands on that site. And he might even make a few folks mad with his tweets.

But the bottom line, Blake tells CMA Close Up magazine: It just doesn’t matter.

"I think it’s such a small percentage of people who buy records that it doesn’t matter,” Blake says.

“What if I offend 1,000 people out there by taking a stand that I hunt—and those 1,000 people never buy another one of my albums again? If that is crucial, I was already screwed to begin with. That’s kind of how I feel about Twitter.”
