Did much better now after the reset. At least I like to believe that it's so. I bet most people who got Leitte were actually trying to guess David Letterman. That's what I was doing. Also got Jim Carrey for guessing Mariah Carey. I use surnames only since I noticed it's much more "profitable".

Agreed, Quizzymaestro; can we have an update? I suspect a lot of shifting has gone on in the Twitterverse. Also, you still have "Soccer cub", which I think is adorable but likely false advertising; I would totally watch soccer if cubs of any species were involved!

I call bull for CNN. They don't even get 1 million viewers on their best days - no way they have two Twitter feeds with 95 million followers. If that one is so glaringly stacked with fake followers I would bet all of them are to a large degree.

Katy Perry's videos on YouTube don't get 100 million views every day, either. So what? These things aren't related and you sound delusional.

Level 72
Oct 22, 2022
Delusional is believing that CNN has that many viewers (which has been dropped to 60mil) when networks like MSNBC and Fox destroy them in the ratings but aren't on the list. Delusional is not admitting that at least 5% (I think it's higher) of all followers are bots according to Twitter themselves. If followers isn't related to the number of people who pay attention to what your posting then the whole thing is the pathetic joke that I've always believed and the number of followers is irrelevant.

There's a big, big difference in the product Twitter offers and watching an actual CNN broadcast. They're two separate communication mediums. Personally, I can't stand to watch any commercial television. I do read the news online though.

Social media is a weird thing... I had a hundred or so followers at one point on Twitter but only got at most a handful of views for any given tweet. I think part of it was that you can 'mute' people from your timeline.
