Over the weekend, she tweeted that she would release new music (scheduled for today in fact) if she got 100,000 retweets. However, that idea went belly up when she could only manage LESS than 2,000 retweets despite having four million followers.
She also appeared frustrated when she supposedly retweeted a fan who said, “where her 3.9m followers at when you need them smh,” but that got deleted. When she deleted the tweet and cited 'hacking' issues, no one believed it. As I correctly suspected, many of Rita's followers are fake. Twitteraudit.com says she has 1.3 million spam followers. Therefore, around 2.5 million of her followers are real.
It's not a surprise given that many celebs on Twitter have spam accounts and some are even paid for by their record labels just to make the artist appear more popular than they really are. It's bad enough she got dragged over the situation but she put herself up for further joke when claiming she was hacked. Why wait a few hours to delete the tweet? Why wasn't her team on it, like those of other celebs who have had their accounts hacked? Just another bad day at the office huh?
