Do not doubt the power of Donnie Wahlberg‘s Twitter! The NKOTB member and Blue Bloods star not only “twugs” far beyond the call of duty, but a recent retweet may have managed to save a fan’s life. “Basically, a few of my Twitter followers retweeted a blog about a fan named Bobbette who was in desperate need of a kidney transplant,” Donnie told the Boston Herald. “So I saw the tweet, read the link and then retweeted and asked for help.” Donnie’s darlings did just that, providing Vanderbilt University with six potential matches. Now Bobbette is scheduled to get The Right Kidney in June! Woah-oh, oh-oh-oh!
Of course, Donnie refused to take too much credit for the medical donor mobilizing, calling it a “team effort.” “ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a testament to the value of Twitter when used for more than telling people what one is eating for dinner or using it to sell products by tweeting as an #endorser,” he told the Herald. Hard to believe this guy used to be the “bad boy” in the New Kids! Hopefully she’ll be able to catch the New Kids and the Backstreet Boys during their upcoming summer tour.
