Express confuses followers and following. Ha ha ha!
I pointed out this morning that the Express was talking utter rubbish claiming that the BBC was keeping up twitter accounts with 0 or 2 followers. The real numbers were in the tens of 000s.
It appears the Express has confused following and follower numbers.
Ha ha ha ha ha.
Here's what they said:
The BBC Radio 2 site, which gathers messages, or “tweets”, from presenters such as Chris Evans, Jonathan Ross and Alan Carr, has no followers.
The BBC Radio 5 Live site, run by presenter Victoria Derbyshire, has just two.
Did they mean these accounts:
- http://twitter.com/onradio2now: 536 followers, but following 1 person
- http://twitter.com/vicderbyshire (Victoria Derbyshire): 3,639 followers, following 2 people.
Yes, they surely did. I wrote this morning that:
it makes it look like you don't know what you're talking about.
And they certainly don't.
