I haven't tried this myself, but after seeing a screenshot of a Twitter profile I got an idea. I don't plan to use the method myself, so I thought I'd post it here and let others try it. I'll use the one which I came across as an example but add your own twist. First, create a Twitter account with a Celeb's name - there are hundreds of fake celeb accounts on Twitter so I don't think this is against their TOS, as long as you clearly mark that it's a parody account and that you're not claiming to be that person. Use their name and picture, and make the username as close to the celeb's name as possible - in my example it was Robert Downey Jr, so they used a photo of him, set their name as "Robert Downey Jr" and made the username "RobertJrDowney" - at first glance it looks like the real thing. Loads of people will naturally start to follow your account thinking it's the real thing (feel free to get some followers from Fiverr so it looks more popular). Now, start to tweet random things, jokes etc and your followers will start to build. Here's the twist - in amongst normal tweets, tweet something controversial but funny. Nothing too sick, but just a little offensive and controversial that would end up all over the papers if a celeb really said it. Take a screenshot of the tweet (make sure the name, photo etc is visble) and upload the screenshot to some funny image websites, submit to digg/reddit etc, get people with loads of Facebook friends to post it on their wall, basically make the image go viral. The end result is thousands of people will then visit the Twitter account in the screenshot (ie yours) and you'll get a load of extra followers. In the example I came across, the fake Downey Jr account posted a joke about Chinese people, and loads of people shared it on Facebook etc thinking it was the real Robert Downey Jr who said it. The example I'm using now has 160,000 followers - when I looked yesterday it had 145k. The example is: Code: https://twitter.com/RobertJrDowney The tweet I'm referring to is on 1st August, and says "China has really impressed me in the Olympics. They use the same person for every event." - if anyone on here finds the joke offensive then let me know and I'll edit it out my post.
