Beliebers are making Twitter unbearable

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

In my last post I discussed how positive feedback can encourage a better quality of website content from users.

Trying to be the ‘bigger man’ I kept the spin positive, and chose not to examine websites which I believe are not succeeding to achieve this. But today I logged onto Twitter, and was appauled by the sheer number of Trending Tweets relating to Justin Bieber.

I know everyone loves to hate JB, almost to the point of cliché, but just take a look at this screenshot of trending tweets:

Four of the top 10 Hashtags relate to Bieber. These include “Buy Boyfriend Tonight”, “Believe Will Slay The Charts”, “Boyfriend Will Win Grammys” and “Beliebers Want Bieberconda”.

See, Justins got this scam going where girls who like his music get to pretend like he is their boyfriend, which is a shrewd marketing strategy, but deeply, deeply annoying.

If PJs.Cat ever gets filled with Beliebers and people who post huge volumes of Harry Potter related musings, you have my express permission to delete any accounts you may have with us post haste.

PJs.Cat will not stand for this standard of Tweets
