Why Ex-Googler is such an important title?

I have seen many articles, observations, opinions, and narratives out there with the tag "By Ex-Googler" Why is it so important to add it as part of your subject title.

Prestige, although given the amount of ex-Googlers nowadays it's diluted.

As an ex-Apple person having that title opened a lot of doors, which I eventually removed because it was opening the wrong doors.
