Scholars believe that social media is changing the overall spectrum of the porn industry.

"Before it was about pure fantasy: you didn't have enough information to be real fans of performers," said Chauntelle Tibbals, a visiting scholar at University of Southern California who studies the porn industry. "But now you can become a true fan of a porn star."

Like many pop singers and Hollywood actors, adult film stars are building a closer connection with their fans by sharing some of their everyday life moments through Twitter.  Experts believe that the site allows fans to see different sides of the stars’ personalities such as their hobbies and opinions on current events.

"You are seeing a different kind of relationship that a viewer has with a porn performer," Tibbals said. "One of the things that comes with social media is the deconstruction of stereotypes."

Tibbals also suggested that the presence of porn stars in the social media sphere can aid the industry’s efforts to become more mainstream and socially acceptable. 

Adult film starts like James Deen, Dana DeArmond, and Kayden Kross have already built a strong presence on Twitter.
