@Violet, your suggestion in the original cracked me up!

auntliddy said...

Everything about them is fake. No surprise.

Kno Won Uno said...

This wasn't actually a blind.

I would feel so stupid & embarrassed if I bought Twitter followers. I just don't get it. But then again I'd like to dump the 6 ones who are following my dried up account anyway.

Would be great to find out where they bought the followers and then write an article about how the K-Trashes support sweatshop Chinese and Koreans.

Jessica Larson said...

Well, I am just shocked!

It's really not hard to get followers, I'm at over 6,000 & really haven't been tweeting very long, less than a year. My tumblr & Goodreads are the ones I should do more with.

Breezy said...

That's just sad.

Sherry said...

"Like farms" are kept employed by douchies like the Kard.....you know whos. If you go on Kim's fb page and click on her likes, you can see that the majority of her likes come from Bangladesh. You can see this in a lot of the big brand and celebrity pages. They're pretty easy to spot.

Count Jerkula said...

@Snootches: Yeah. You can buy followers on Twitter, w/ X # of retweets in the package. They will dose the followers over time (week maybe 2) to try and avoid Twitter flagging the acct.

Someone I know may or may not have purchased 50k followers for someone, in effort to have the person's acct shuttered.

@count: Awww...this is how imaginary friends work in the Twitter era

All Lace no Leather said...

I thought it was Pimp Mama's job to do this?

Ella Bee said...

@Count I would legitimately like to hear more on that story. As a social media manager, that is a fascinating strategy to get someone banned and quite clever!

I know "everyone does it", but this blind is maddening for my line of work. Many brands just don't understand WHY this is not a good idea, because so many like the Kardashians have jumped on the bandwagon to keep up appearances. It's very frustrating to put a massive amount of effort in to move the needle even slightly, and then entitled bitches waltz in and do this crap every day.

Count Jerkula said...

@EllaBee: It didn't work to get the person banned, but it did get the account suspended for a bit (week or 20 while Twitter investigated. Person went from like 12k to 60k+ in like 2 weeks. I don't remember if they reported the account or Twitter picked up on it. They wound up wiping the purchased followers.

In case it is ever useful to you, Twitter responds to DMCA notices. I forget if they will pull a pic or they tell the person to pull it or else their acct will be suspended.
