Some interesting and funny too comments came in to my mini exploration of twitter friends to followers ratio. And vavoom, todays inbox has about 6 more friends notifications; of them maybe one I know and added.
But get this, for those want to push the ratio even higher, is TwitterAdder with a new record of 15.44! That is 1853 friends with a scant 120 followers. And what is the tweet action? Well, it is self promotion (no crime, but virtue?) for TwitterAdder.com:
Have you ever wanted more friends on your Twitter account? Now you can. Just enter your Twitter login details below and we’ll add 20 random friends to your account.
which may explain recent rashes of friend requests from unknown origins. Call it TwitterFriendSpam? What is the desire to build up a huge list of “friends” (who are not really your friends)? C’mon, I bet some out there are pushing the volume past 20.0 friends to followers.
