“Because it’s a useful tool. And imagine what Louis XIV could have accomplished at Versailles if he’d had one.”
— Martha Stewart in her latest Time op-ed on why her drone is so essential to her empire.
Stewart tweeted the article to her 2.96 million followers on Wednesday morning and in the opening paragraphs, she delves into how she and her drone, a Parrot AR Drone 2.0, fell in love in the most Martha way possible.”Last year, while celebrating my birthday in Maine, I was given a drone fitted with a high-definition camera. After a quick introduction to the mechanics of operating the contraption and a few words about its idiosyncrasies, I loaded the appropriate app on my iPad and went down to the beach. In just a few minutes I was hooked,” she writes.
The homemaker extraordinaire goes on to wonder about how some of the great architectural masterpieces could have ever been built without a drone, like the Château de Versailles and the Great Wall of China. But don’t you worry about Martha Stewart: The Conspiracy Theorist getting too ahead of herself here. She seems perfectly fine with using her drone just to take pictures of her pristine garden in Bedford, N.Y.
Ten minutes after she posted the article, she tweeted her impact:
