If you use self-described “web site traffic and promotion company” uSocial.net to buy votes on Digg and StumbleUpon, you’ll be thrilled to know it’s expanded its service to Twitter. For just $87, uSocial will generate an additional 1,000 Twitter followers to the account of your choosing. Sweet! Ratchet up your order to more than 5,000 new Twitter followers and you’ll even get a discount.
The press release announcing the service kind of says it all. Though you have to give the team at uSocial a little credit — at least they’re being up front about what they’re doing:
First it was popularity on social bookmarking sites like StumbleUpon that was being sold and now Twitter is in the sights of those looking to have their fame and status artificially increased.
Web traffic and promotion company uSocial.net – who famously received and ignored a Cease & Desist order from Digg after selling votes on the site – have just launched a service allowing Twitter users to purchase packages of followers if they are having trouble attaining them on their own.
