UPDATE – 7-17 – ADAM’S TWITER IS STILL IN A STATE OF HACKEDNESS – SEE ADAM’S BUBBLE TWEET FROM DANNY’S ACCOUNT (AND FAIR WARNING, YOU MAY HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR PANTS AFTER HEARING ADAM’S LAST WORDS!!!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pyWDKb5OuE
***UPDATE – SUNDAY, 7-12 – ADAM NOW HAS OVER 100,000 FOLLOWERS!!!***
My original Twitter article was lost in the server switch, and I saw the comments that many of you made asking for the article to be reposted, so here it is, back by popular demand! Not only is Twitter a fairly recent phenomenon in itself, but it’s new to many of us. One of our fans, Lorrin, has been posting a guide elsewhere on this site explaining exactly how Twitter works. Her guide is excellent, so Lorrin, please post your Twitter guide here as well.
My original Twitter article was prompted by Adam’s new Twitter address and curiosity as to where Adam stood with followers compared to the other Idols, so I’ll repeat that information with current numbers. Adam’s new Twitter is “adamlambert.” If you were following Adam’s original Twitter address of “therealGlambert” then you don’t need to do a single thing – you are automatically receiving Adam’s new Tweets. This is a great time to be following Adam as well as all the Idols, since they have down time on the bus and are not only giving shout-outs to the cities on the tour, but responding to fans on occasion and also giving out news. Those following the Idols during the past few days have heard that Adam didn’t sign autographs after the Sacramento concert because of a severe headache (hoping you’re feeling better Adam!), found out that No Boundaries has been removed from Kris Allen’s set, and heard that Michael Sarver hurt his foot pretty badly.
So who has the most followers? Adam, who else!!! As of this writing, he has 97,382 followers, followed by Danny with 80, 458, Kris with 52,974, Matt with 37, 698, Anoop with 37, 698, Allison with 22,923, Scott with 15,681, and Michael with 10,928.
If you’re curious as to how these numbers compare with the number of followers from my original article from a couple of weeks ago, here are those original numbers:
“Adam has only been on Twitter since early in June and already has, as of this writing, 72,988 followers. That’s a pretty awesome following considering it’s been only a couple + weeks. Adam hasn’t even had time to customize his page yet. I hope he does eventually, but I know he’s multi-tasking like crazy right now, and I know I for one would rather have him working on his music.
I was curious if Adam, of all the top 10 finalists, had the most followers, so I did some checking. I was rather surprised to find he does not. Kris is new on Twitter and already has 39,594 followers, but it’s Danny who has the most people following him, with 73,063. Matt has 32,791, Anoop has 32,692, Scott has 13,380, Allison has 10,348, and Michael has 9,212.”
It’s easy to see that the number of people following Adam has exploded, and with good reason! I think it’s a testament to Adam’s popularity, of course, but I also think it’s because of how Adam uses Twitter. He’s given us rumor control, cool photos (like the awesome photo of his tour jacket), fan shout-outs, laughs (Adam calls lame and boring Tweets “Twats”), and of course news (the explanation of why he didn’t sign autographs in Sacramento.)
So if you haven’t already signed up on Twitter to follow Adam, do it! And if you have any technical problems or questions, our tech wizards are here to help you.
