Mitt & company wouldn't have used the Colorado shootings to hide
this "twitter buy?"

BTW Obama has almost 18,000,000 followers and I doubt any were paid to do so.

I heard an interview with the author, who exposes the tactics played in online advertising and promotion:



I've spent a good part of my career in advertising and promotion. I'm also a webmaster. I thought I'd heard it all, but no, this book exposes many of the shady online tactics--like what Romney is doing with buying followers.

Hint: 135,000 is nowhere near enough.
