    Apparently there is an entire industry attached to getting Twitter followers:
    ?? HOW TO GET MORE TWITTER? FOLLOWERS? BUY TWITTER? FOLLOWERS ??

    Get 25,000 Twitter followers with Twitter Followers for Sale

    Apparently Twitter is trying to crack down on that but why would they even want to? "Hey! You! Stop using our services!"
    Twitter Cracks Down on Pay-for-Followers Scheme

    Based on that 5 minutes of Internet research, I'd imagine most people, to include celebrities, have plenty of fake followers.

    I'm not defending Newt, I'm just sayin'. It looks like Twitter depends on fake followers for numbers inflation. Would this be considered a "Twitter Bubble" when fake, artificial demand is created and subsidized? :lol:
