So I was watching Twitter today, and a post from Ashton Kutcher shows up:
Now I’ve been a fan of Jon Cryer for years. Not as much a Two and a half men fan, but more in the 80’s movies like “Hiding Out“. So I decide to friend him. 35 others had friended him at the time, but that number changed very quick.
In fact, in under 5 minutes, Jon Cryer got 5,000 followers.
The number is starting to settle a bit. 8852 is where he is at only 16 minutes after Kutcher made the announcement. What was more interesting was Jon Cryer has been on Twitter since December 16th (getting verified a few days later).
But it took someone with 90 million followers to give Jon 9572 followers and growing.
Of course, Jon hasn’t really posted anything, so I can see why his counts are low. We’ve also seen celebrities endorse someone and their Twitter counts shoot through the roof. A great example was almost 2 years ago when Conan O’Brien followed one random person. Now, Sarah Slowik has an audience of 87,000.
So now you can see the power of Twitter in a interesting way. in 23 minutes, 10,881 followed this profile.
