(Newser) – Maybe you've heard, but Twitter is abuzz over Caroline Calloway. The Instagram influencer received a ton of attention this week when her former co-writer wrote an article about their working relationship, artnet reports. In the Cut, Natalie Beach describes the 27-year-old as a beguiling storyteller who could burst into tears over a simple gift or apparently lie about it being stolen; who lived halfway between her true self and her romantic online persona; who wrestled with an Adderall addiction and threatened suicide if Beach kept working on their manuscript about Calloway's life. When they abandoned the book, they parted ways. But it's the relationship—and the insight into an influencer's life—that seem to have struck a chord.

  • Beach says she was sucked in by their high-energy partnership. She even blew it off when Calloway admitted to having bought tens of thousands of fake Instagram followers to jump-start her career. "After all, she was constantly calling me her best friend and work wife, telling me she loved me," writes Beach. "I thought we were in this together."
