eggrolls: I'm one of the 44%. Only signed up to follow a friend./Now I have 12 followers of my own non-account. WTF
ChubbyTiger: eggrolls: I'm one of the 44%. Only signed up to follow a friend./Now I have 12 followers of my own non-account. WTFDitto. I'm following a few people/companies and I've never twated anything. Still got a bunch of followers. I wonder what's wrong with them.
Johnny Texas: I got drunk one night and cussed out Nancy Grace via Twitter.
macgregor666: I joined briefly a couple of years ago. My name is the same as a large donut chain here in Canada. I immediately started getting followed by hundreds of people. Kinda freaked me out a bit, couldn't get out fast enough.
Bondith: Then I got @sciencenotscary for some shameless self-promotion, telling myself that I'd only use it for blatant self-promotion and that I didn't really have a Twitter account, Science Isn't Scary did.Nearly 5500 tweets and over a thousand followers later, I've gotten more contacts through it than I ever did through LinkedIn.
brantgoose: Or maybe Lady Gaga has Twits and I have Little Monsters*. I forget.You can get a random number of followers without ever tweeting, but it helps if you tweet at least once a year.My guess is I could have 100 in five minutes if I used one of the keywords that commercial advertisers and spammers look for: sex, money, debt, penis, sex, cars, sex, purchase or "Oh, crap, am I ever gullible. Just lost thousands to a scammer!"Try it.*In fact, i'm pretty sure I have Little Monsters on VHS and DVD also. It's cute. Get stoned and watch it some time. If you have ever wondered what Howie Mandel would look like if he was blue and had horns, you might learn something.
lostcat: I know, it's unbelievable that a large number of people would sign up for a service like Twitter just to follow accounts that provide them with current and relevant information.
davidphogan: I know I'm in a minority, but I like twitter because it's not Facebook.
brimed03: I AM THE 44%.P.S. Like Cinderella, on the stroke of midnight my account turned back into a pumpkin. Thanks for the day of TF, Drew!
BHShaman: I use my Twitter account to link into news sites and crap websites.
