Can you say sad and pathetic?
Hey Newb, have you noticed there is an elections sub-forum?

It isn't different than paying for a TV ad or Radio ad. The more "people" that follow you the more you trend so the more it snowballs with other people following you.

I can also see someone with 400 twit followers that they have never met thinking that they are close friends with them all and then thinking it is weird.
