bfire writes to tell us that marketing firm uSocial has decided to apply a new monetization scheme to the Twitter service
by providing packages of followers for purchase. "According to the firm, a single Twitter follower could be worth $0.10 a month. It is selling followers in various packages, starting at 1,000 for $87, which is delivered in seven days, and going all the way up to 100,000 followers at a cost of $3,479, delivered over a year."
This is just the latest in a number of different exploits
of the Twitter universe as individuals try to subvert a popular tool into a self-serving device.
