Some interesting data here that’s worth considering; I like, too, how they’ve defined their ROI meaning.

Btw, don’t you love big-metric headlines? “832% increase”! Magic! That’s the headline in the post on All Twitter.

The Underground Economy of Buying Twitter Followers [Infographic] | Barracuda Labs

leave a comment »

“Many people dream of becoming popular or famous, and Twitter provides an outlet to make this possible. Most Twitter users try the standard way to get popular and gain followers: constantly tweet funny quotes or comments, discuss breaking events, or disclose information that many people want. However, some Twitter users look for unusual ways to make themselves appear more desirable and become popular faster. One of these ways is buying Twitter followers, which right or wrong, is a significantly growing trend.”

Fascinating analysis.
