LeAnn Rimes May or May Not Have Bought Herself a Whole Lot of Twitter Followers
Country star and internet villain LeAnn Rimes has once again come under fire — this time from observant detractors claiming she’s been purchasing Twitter followers.
LeAnn has gained a purported 100,000 followers over the last month alone — most of those numbers within a two-day span — leading to suspicions and pointed fingers.
Radar Online is reporting that LeAnn had around 457,000 followers on April 17, but that number rocketed to almost 562,000 by May 14. Socialbakers, a website specializing in social media metrics, says a large follower spike happened on May 2.
A cursory glance of LeAnn’s follower list did reveal a smattering of egg avatar accounts — the calling card of a Twitter robot.
Framing someone for purchasing Twitter followers seems a pale retribution for breaking up a marriage, but who knows? Brandi loves nothing more than making LeAnn look bad — and even though she swore off the haterade last month, just two days ago she threw enough shade to blot out the sun.
