With a sister as famous (for being famous) as Kim Kardashian, it didn’t really come as a surprise to me that 18-year-old wannabe model Kendall Jenner is buying fake followers on Twitter to make herself look popular on social media.
After sauntering into the model world through her family’s name, Kendall Jenner bought herself her own online posse as it was revealed well over half her 7.99 million followers were fake. I wouldn’t put it past her to want to scratch her way up the egotistical Twitter ranking for most followers, her account being only 117th. With over 4.6 million users being dormant or fake on her account, it does seem like a dishonest way to gain a status, and one which could backfire amongst her real fans, or in fact fuel the Directioners fire – many joined the Kendall-hate bandwagon when she was rumoured to be dating heartthrob Harry Styles at the beginning of the year.
With the sheer amount of followers her Kardashian sisters have accumulated, I’m sure they would have forked out a fair amount of fakery too, no doubt backed by pushy momager Kris Jenner. Newly-wed Kim Kardashian West is riding high with 21.4 million followers, along with sisters Khloé and Kourtney who have 10.2 million and 11.7 million respectively. Could this many people REALLY be interested in what they have to say…?
The Kardashian family are a walking endorsement and with the young Jenner being paid for each product she promotes on Twitter, she is sure to receive more money if she tweets out to more followers – did someone say fraud? Just saying…
