Social networking is a great tool to expand your brand and keep in touch with your fans when you’re a big time celeb (or want to be one), so it’s no surprise that mostly everyone in showbiz under the age of 30 is all over Twitter, sharing tidbits about their everyday lives, getting into feuds with fellow artists and/or hateful fans and quite often making us cringe.
When Justin Bieber was named the most followed person on Twitter last year, some people wondered how that could be. Well, I’ll tell you how: nearly half of his followers are from fake accounts. Ta da! Fake accounts are deemed such when they are following fewer than 50 people, have 1 or fewer followers and who have never tweeted. Justin’s fake count clocks in at an impressive 45% – impressively sad, that is.

Oh, snap! Even Katy Perry and Lady GaGa are doing better than the Biebs. No surprise, of course – you’d have to be a robot (or 12) to think Justin has anything worthwhile to say. He’s the worst. So, what do you say? Do you follow Justin? Which stars DO you follow? Do any of them actually have anything interesting to say?
