Ashton Kutcher on Twitter

Ulitzer is designed to replace Wikipedia with Its three-dimensional live content offerings and dynamic topic structure

Ashton Kutcher on Twitter Magazine launched today on Ulitzer. The online magazine to offer live news and comments on Kutcher's Twitter journey.

Ashton Kutcher is an American actor, with the largest number of followers on the Twitter social networking site. He was the creator, executive producer, and host of the MTV celebrity prank show Punk'd. He is known for his roles in films such as Dude, Where's My Car?, Just Married, The Butterfly Effect, The Guardian and What Happens in Vegas. He is also the producer and co-creator of the supernatural TV show Room 401 and the reality TV show Beauty and the Geek. He is married to actress Demi Moore.

Ulitzer content is grouped in 25 distinct subjects from "Aerospace and Defense" to "Travel and Hospitality." Each subject group offers an unlimited number of topics, and each topic may contain thousands of peer-reviewed feature stories, bylined articles, blog posts, news, reviews, commentary, and unique editorial content authored by top experts in their fields.

Ulitzer is designed to replace Wikipedia with Its three-dimensional live content offerings and dynamic topic structure.



"Facebook established itself as the new and improved tool for Myspace users and Ulitzer will establish itself as the new, much improved, dynamic, and  three dimensional version of Wikipedia with live content," said Fuat Kircaali, founder of Ulitzer, Inc. "Ulitzer is an original and unique tool for readers who seek quality content on any subject, and written by the leading authorities in their fields. "

Ulitzer Will Change the Face of Online Media
"The power that new media has to transform society is unquestioned. Gutenburg gave us books, the Lumiere brothers gave us cinema, Gore gave us the Internet, and now SYS-CON brings us Ulitzer," said Kyle Gabhart, founder of Cloudonomics Journal (http://cloudonomics.ulitzer.com). "Ulitzer is simple, intuitive, and provides a powerful digital tool for creating, distributing, consuming, and aggregating content. Within minutes of registration, I had a personal author site connected to my external blog and I had launched a new e-zine (Cloudonomics Journal) with content contributed from twelve different authors. Combining simplicity with powerful functionality, Ulitzer will change the face of online media."

Ulitzer Made Us a Global Phenomenon!
"Since launching the Cloud Interoperability Magazine on Ulitzer.com, I have seen both our community as well our cloud interoperability movement blossom into a global phenomenon," said Reuven Cohen, Founder, Cloud Computing Interoperability Magazine (http://cloudinterop.ulitzer.com). "I can thank a large part of this to the increased exposure Ulitzer has given us. Ulitzer is one of the most powerful and the easiest online media interfaces I've had the privilege of working with."
