Earlier today, Charles Johnson asked “Is Mitt Romney Buying Twitter Followers?”
Check the number of followers, then watch as it increases by a hundred or so every time you reload the page. If you look at all these followers, they seem to have major trouble with spelling simple English words, have names that sometimes seem to be random assortments of syllables, and have no (or very few) followers themselves.
At the current rate, he’s adding about 10,000 followers every hour.
I thought that was interesting. So I looked at the account, and sure enough it’s full of bogus followers. People with bizarre names like Doubtful Horrendous and Landlocked Acrimony are ‘following’ Mitt. It’s laughable.
What’s funnier, if not nastier, is the African American presence in Mitt’s bogus account. Black women are young, foul-mouthed and incapable of spelling (see the previous post). If Team Romney thought that these were your typical black people, they’re overwrought. And they’re disastrously out of touch with reality. All you have to do is look into who these people additionally follow on Twitter, and it’s obvious these ‘fans’ are manufactured. They all follow the same four or five accounts. It’s a statistical impossibility. A poorly run scheme. A clumsy ruse.
But it gets better. The African American ‘men’ that follow Mitt Romney are especially bizarre. Whoever is running the scheme either has a sense of humor, or is unfamiliar with what’s a typical name for an American male. Perhaps Romney is outsourcing his scams as well. Would it surprise anyone? Let’s take Marybeth Owen, for instance.
She’s a simple girl from Ireland. With an aggressive pituitary tumor. She follows Mitt.
As does Heloise. She likes Mittens.
islandbowy22, or Emilee, does as well.
Apparently, scores of America’s sexiest momen love Mitt Romney.
It’s true! Look:
