The Gift of Twitter Followers

My brother can be weird sometimes. Rather than wanting something normal for his birthday, like a physical gift, or a chance to go somewhere, he decides that he wants to have 100,00 followers on Twitter. At first, I didn’t understand how that would be a gift that someone could actually give. I didn’t know 100,000 people, so it would have been hard to convince that many people to follow my brother on Twitter. Then my brother told me that I could reach those numbers if I buy Twitter followers at

I don’t know what was more surprising, the fact that you can buy followers on Twitter, or the fact that my brother wanted me to buy him that many followers. I asked him how I would go about buying the followers, and he told me about a special website that his friends use to buy followers. I looked at the website and bought him the followers he wanted. He was happy that I did it for him, but it still felt weird to me that he didn’t want any items.

I decided to get my brother a smart phone so he could check on the followers that I bought him. He didn’t expect to see the phone, and when I gave it to him, wrapped up in wrapping paper and a box, he was curious to know what was in the box. He opened the box and jumped for joy when he got the phone. I figured he would appreciate a physical gift too. Now, whenever my brother has a spare moment, he whips out his phone to look at the number of followers he has. Whenever his follower count increases, he jumps up and yells in excitement. I think my parents might be a little mad that I got him the phone.
