As some will know I also have Side-Line Magazine under my wings. One of the writers there suggested we should make an article on the number of followers some of the so-called cult bands have. The reason is simple, earlier this week I tweeted this out:
Surprising how little followers some of these so called ‘cult’ bands have on Facebook and/or Twitter. Not so cult after all?

And apparently it made that editor think.
However, one of my clients from the banking sector had asked me if I could make a report on the Twitter activity of some of their competitors. Without going too much into detail, I also checked out the number of fake followers these Twitter accounts had.
And that seemed to be a more interesting way to approach things, so I suggested this: ‘Why not check what some of these bands are up to…’
The article will give you some kind of an insight into the Twitter accounts of the more popular bands out there. And the findings are rather surprising, or shocking, depends how you interpreted it.
