Larissa Riquelme, a lingerie model from Paraguay, has a lot to thank for the wonders of social networks, especially Twitter.
She catapulted to fame after a guy posted a Twitpic of her dressed scantily with an iPhone nestled against her bosom in the first match against Italy.
That picture apparently went viral. Now Larissa Riquelme is on the front pages of leading sports websites and she is tagged as Paraguay’s number one fan.
Larissa Riquelme recently teased football fans with a promise that she will strip naked and run on the streets in body paint if Paraguay reach the semi finals or finals of World Cup 2010.
Well, when you put Twitter, iPhone and a fame hungry voluptuous babe together, the result is a potent mix, especially when you position the iPhone strategically.
Larissa Riquelme’s popularity (and she is not even in South Africa) proves again the immense power of Twitter in getting your name or face out there in the shortest possible time.
