Thanks to Darren Kuropatwa for tipping me off to Andrea Hernandez‘s tweet about the pending eBay sale of Andrew Baron’s (of Rocketboom fame) Twitter account and followers. As of now the bid is $1125.

Rocketboom selling Twitter followers

Should we be impressed, sad, disgusted, shocked, or not surprised at all? At a minimum I think this shows some creativity, similar to Kyle MacDonald‘s “one red paperclip” scheme. I do think this is sad as well, however, but another example of commercialism in the web 2.0 world.

One Response to Selling Twitter Followers?

  1. Wow! $1125.00! Obviously from someone who hasn’t a clue what twitter is all about. I work for a not-for-profit corporation (YES I Can! Science, http://www.yesican-science.ca) and we scramble for every single penny to keep our K-12 project alive. Clearly we’re missing the boat.
