More evidence of Twitter abuse

As a follow up to my last post, in which I call into question the intentions of certain Twitterers, here is another example of abuse.

This is a phony Jennifer Aniston account, called jenifferaniston (notice the incorrect spelling). This is not the real Jennifer Aniston. This person is following exactly 0 other people, and has exactly 0 Tweets. Yet almost 120,000 people are following this fake celebrity that is NOT EVEN TWEETING!

That's 120,000 people that are either clueless, or trying to get other jenifferaniston followers to follow them (as part of a popularity contest I referred to in the original post). Again, neither of those are good reasons to follow this bogus account.

Twitter abuse, in my opinion. And again, not Twitter's fault.
