Does the huge jump in the number of twitter followers a tweeter has indicate that person’s REAL popularity… or does it just indicate that they bought twitter followers?
Let’s take @Danielle Staub, who is rumored to be back on season five of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
A week ago, Danielle had just over 100,000 twitter followers:
As of today, Danielle has added over 200,000! IMO, there is no way over 200,000 tweeters suddenly found Danielle’s twitter account in less than a week…
It does look like Danielle purchased some new followers!
NOTE: IF Danielle is still in negotiations with Bravo for her comeback during season five of the RHOBJ, Danielle may be using the increase in twitter followers to indicate to Bravo how popular she is… and to negotiate for more of those Bravo and sponsor Bucks!
Back in August, Micah Tanous got a call offering him and Peggy Tanous more twitter followers… SH August 3, 2012.
