In my entrepreneurship class, we held a contest to see who could accumulate the most twitter followers in three days.
Most people accumulated between zero and thirty followers. This demonstrates either incompetence or laziness. I hope it’s the latter.
Third place (100 followers) tweeted on behalf of “snappy the ghost,” the logo of the popular iphone app, snap chat. A cleaver use of current trends.
The runner up captured 360 followers. Not bad. He created a handle with the name of his pet, posted funny photos, and targeted people who already followed animals.
I accumulated 22.8k followers. I purchased them all on fiverr.com for five dollars. I wont be able to advertise to these followers, but I suppose it enhances my image. The class seemed bitter, but a win is a win.
