Because people still care way too much about how many people follow and read their 140-character missives, Justin Bieber fans have launched a campaign to ensure that Justin is the most followed person on Twitter instead of Lady Gaga by urging people to unfollow Gaga. Yes, this is a thing that is really happening. No, I don’t want to live on this planet anymore. Page Six reports:
“To all beliebers this is operation unfollow Lady Gaga,” the typo-ridden message reads. “I’m sorry if your a ‘little monster’ but don’t ou want Justin to be #1 followed on Twitter? Well here is the plan we all know that all beliebers with twitter follow Justin and we don’t have to ceate a million accounts with this plan. First, it’s simple to lok up Lady Gaga on Twitter. Next unfollow her. Simple! I’m not trying to trash Gaga or anything I am a fsan of her music but I think Justin should be #1 followed on Twitter! That’s all but believers please spread the word for me okay? Thank you all that helped!”
Bieber fans even created a hashtag dedicated to this mission: #OperationUnfollowGaga.
The campaign went into its most active phase yesterday, which happened to be Gaga’s birthday. The popularity of the #OperationUnfollowGaga tag led Lady Gaga fans to post responses like, “Really Beliebers? That’s pathetic.”
Just a quick FYI here, but these are the people who will one day be in charge of the world and who will have to maintain peace and balance. And they’re waging a Twitter battle over two pop stars who won’t be relevant in about ten years. Mike Judge was completely right about the whole Idiocracy thing.
