Tim Ferris Buys Twitter Reach For $3/Follower
Tim Ferris obviously want more followers on Twitter, because he’s “bribing the world” with his $3/follower promise. Problem is, you won’t be getting the money, American public schools in need will, thought DonorChoose.org. Ferris donates $1/follower, and “an anonymous supporter” matches that with another $2/follower, which breaks down to $3/follower. So you’d be doing a good thing, following Tim Ferris on Twitter while this campaign is rolling, which is until 50,000 new followers have been gained. That’s $150,000 for a good cause. And you could always unfollow later down the line.
Should the extra money to the schools not be enough to convince you, Ferris is also doing a competition where you can win a MacBook Pro and some other stuff. Check out his post for more, and do follow him. I will.

I hate public schools, so I gladly will deprive the system of three dollars.
Things like this make me want to actually NOT follow someone. Gimmicks are stupid.
Wow, that’s impressive use of Twitter. Well done Tim! :) Thanks for sharing. I already follow up.
Michael, you hate schools that allow everyone to get an education? OK.
Having said that I’m not completely convinced, though I’m likely to fall for it. :(
Public schools are prison daycamps where students learn to read, write, bleed, fight, drink, drug, and do each other; where they are kept off the streets while their fathers work themselves into early graves and their mothers cry as their babies learn to hate them. I never want my children to go to a public school. May their bricks and mortar line the furnaces of hell.
This is great! Helping the needy is very good. Good luck!
