Within a few years, his @pinlord Instagram page had over 145,000 followers and, as a true Instagram influencer, was making Morales […]
Not too many years ago, talking to the air and expecting a response was either the sign of a hardcore Trekkie or someone with an over-developed or diluted imagination.
