Urban Meyer & Jim Harbaugh Compete For Fake Twitter Followers
Ohio State and Michigan are bitter rivals. The head football coaches for both are competitive, even when it comes to purchasing something fake.
As Deadspin.com reports, Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer celebrated reaching 1,000,000 twitter followers this morning.
Shortly after Meyer's announcement, Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh eclipsed the 1,000,000 twitter follower mark as well.
What's ridiculous about these twitter "milestones" is the authenticity. Neither coach has 1,000,000 real twitter followers.
According to twitter audit, 59% of Meyer's followers are fake, while 60% of Harbaugh's aren't real either.
As Deadspin's Kevin Draper investigated further, it's possible both coaches accounts paid for the followers, a practice that's not unusual, and relatively cheap.
Ohio State and Michigan will compete in anything, no matter how fake or trivial.
