If you're interested in Shaquille O'Neal following you on Twitter, it will cost you—about $500, as of Wednesday afternoon. Mr. O'Neal is one of several athletes, including San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker and UFC president Dana White, participating in a Twitter auction on eBay, in which people bid for celebrities to follow, mention or retweet them. All proceeds will benefit a Haiti earthquake relief project.

You'll still get it, and this kind of news being posted won't prevent you from getting it.

It's also pretty clearly labeled, so if you know immediately that this story means nothing to you, it's easy to avoid it.
