The Daily Hodl is reporting today that TRON's twitter community have been trying to raise awareness of the cryptocurrency by using a new platform that allows for sending the coin over twitter. They have been targeting high profile names with donations in the hopes more people will be exposed.
Names of celebrities who have been gifted TRON include Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Ellen Degeneres and of course, the Pope.

I want to 🙏 you by sending you 10 #TRON crypto currency. Via Twitter@SnoopDogg+10 @GoSeedit#ArtistsOwnTheirMusic 🎤#OperationTronStorm#IAmDecentralized pic.twitter.com/ZWrZepLtgI
This is made possible because of the Seedit platform, which allows for TRON transactions to be sent via a variety of social media apps, including twitter. The campaign to target celebrities is called #OperationTronStorm and is hoping to bring a more mainstream exposure to the top 10 performing crypto.
Whether or not this campaign will be successful remains to be seen, but in the mean time, at least when someone gives you grief about hodling crypto you can respond, "Whatever, even the Pope has some!"
