Who the F*** Is Justin Bieber?

The other day, I was flipping through the channels just trying to numb my brain in between things and not think of anything in particular. It is one of my favorite procrastination techniques and an absolute time waster. As I was doing so, I happened to pass cross a music channel, I’m inclined to say MTV out of habit but since they dropped music from their programming it must have been something else, and this video just grabbed my attention for some odd reason:

The first thing that popped in my head was like “Wow, now we have lesbian pop stars! How far things have progressed“. And so, I was curious and I actually finishd the video! Being as out of tune with pop music as I am, I have never heard this song again, but since Ludacris is featured it must be some really hot thing. At the end of the video I was in shock! It was a boy called “Justin Beiber”. For some odd reason, that sounded very familiar! And then I remembered… that’s a name that I always see trending on Twitter.

Username: @xadultfinder – Action: Unfollow! More Twitter Tips…

Apart for the Twitter avatar and background, what would influence your choice of people to follow on Twitter? How many Twitter users have you unfollowed due to their user names? What is the best method for companies to benefit from Twitter user names?

So what’s all the fuss about?

“No one cares anyway”… Right? Wrong! Take a look at the following comments:

@Kurd said “I have blocked people before based solely on their avatar or name, if it was offensive enough. Or if I’m following someone with, say, a puppy avatar with the user name “ILoveLife” but at some point they’ve changed their avatar and name to a spread-eagle model named “SexFrosting.”

Lois Arnando added, “Rather than background, I’m more concerned with the user name.”

I’m sure many of you out there would agree to what these two gentlemen had to say, and I’m 100% percent certain that you’ll have one story or another about bad or annoying experiences with at least one of your followers’ user names!
