Don’t we usually see successful businesses, celebrities, early risers to Twitter all with thousands of followers? Didn’t for a minute sighed that they must be doing something right which we are not aware of? How many start up businesses and individuals do you know that reached or exceeded the magic number 10,000 in an unbelievably short time?
Well, here’s some news. Some may not even have true followers. Here’s an interesting article about fake Twitter followers discussing the risks and ethics of the practice on thenextweb.com by Lauren Hockenson.
I was just wondering, would you support if a startup business or an individual trying to reach his/her audience bought the followers to build a platform until their business took off? If you don’t support it, is it because it’s an ethical issue for you or because it’s not “worth it”? Share your ideas!
