Miley Cyrus is leveraging her social media power this week, riding the wave of a scandal to the top of web charts with her hit “Wrecking Ball.”
While Miley Cyrus isn’t getting all positive attention lately, the star also knows the power of a mention — or millions of mentions on Twitter. Using her own account, she’s been begging fans to make “Wrecking Ball” a hit — and succeeding.
