Some celebrities really stepped up in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, using their names and their expansive social networks to raise awareness and aid for a city in crisis. Ben Affleck, Mark Walhberg, Sophia Bush, and even Justin Bieber have taken a break from promoting their latest projects on Facebook and Twitter, in order to meditate on the tragedy. But for some stars, the break was short-lived. Here's a collection of celebrity tweets posted soon after after they tweeted prayers for victims of the Boston bombing.
Two hours after Kylie Jenner tweeted #pray4boston, she posted this:
Last night, Candace Cameron Bure tweeted, "Im shocked to to hear about a bomb at the Boston Marathon and deaths confirmed. Praying..." An hour later, she took a moment away from praying to post this.
Was having a moment & needed 2 hear kind words... And literally moments later, someone told me how beautiful I am. Made my day 😊 thanks God— Candace Cameron Bure (@candacecbure) April 15, 2013
On Monday evening, "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Guidice was "Thinking, praying, hoping for every Bostonian." This morning she had other things on her mind.
About 24 hours ago, "Real Housewives of New York" star Sonja Morgan tweeted "God Bless the police for finding 3rd bomb that went off 1 hr after the first 2." Her next tweet was equally grateful.
What a difference a day makes for Lauren Conrad. Yesterday she wrote "My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Boston today." This morning there were other things to consider.

And lest we forget "Jersey Shore's" Sammi Sweetheart. Here are her back-to-back tweets in the past 24 hours.

"Bachelor" Sean Lowe sent this Twitter message on Monday:
And five hours later...
Praying for those affected by the bombings today.— Sean Lowe (@SeanLowe09) April 15, 2013
Thanks to everyone who voted for me and @petamurgatroyd tonight! Please keep voting west coast! Love you all!— Sean Lowe (@SeanLowe09) April 16, 2013
In Sean's defense, maybe he just thinks if we stop voting for "Dancing with the Stars" the terrorists have won.
