‘Pastors’ And their Purchased ‘Followers’

You can buy twitter followers from a company happy to help you be a fraud.  And some of this company’s customers are ‘pastors’…

The Times reviewed business and court records showing that Devumi has more than 200,000 customers, including reality television stars, professional athletes, comedians, TED speakers, pastors and models. In most cases, the records show, they purchased their own followers. In others, their employees, agents, public relations companies, family members or friends did the buying. For just pennies each — sometimes even less — Devumi offers Twitter followers, views on YouTube, plays on SoundCloud, the music-hosting site, and endorsements on LinkedIn, the professional-networking site.

You should read this report and the next time you think ‘wow, John Piper and Steven Furtick and the other celeb ‘pastors’ sure have a lot of followers’ ask yourself how many of them are bought and paid for…
