In the last 24 hours I’ve had 17 new people follow me on Twitter, without even twitting anything new. All the usernames of these people are of politicians, with a number after, e.g. denniskucinich4. They’re obviously being run by the same person but I don’t understand the point of them following me. Maybe it’s just to get me to look at their twitter account and hopefully subscribe to it, then whoever is managing the account can persuade that politician’s promoters to sponsor them. Anyway, it’s weird, and I hope I don’t get too many more from them.
