Reality TV and radio personality Porsha Williams may have purchased over 1 million followers on social media platform Instagram.com. But she's not the only one.
According to lifestyle blogger Tami of Talkingwithtami.com, an app is exposing celebrities and companies on Instagram who may have padded their follow count by purchasing followers. Williams seems to be one of the main offenders on IG. Her 1,100,000 followers are mostly bogus accounts that she (or her rep) purchased along the way.
This isn't the first time Porsha has been exposed as a fraud. Supposedly she has faked relationships with wealthy African heirs and so forth.
TWT TEA: So this is how it works. If you have more than 9999 followers and don’t have that green drop box arrow, most likely you have paid for your followers! Take a look at rapper Lil Kim’s instagram account. She has the drop down arrow on the far right! This is the way a legitimate instagram page should look.
Then you have reality stars like Porsha D. Williams (just to name a few) who do NOT have the drop down arrow on the far right! See what I mean?
Disclaimer: I’m not saying that Porsha is a fraud or anyone else, I am just giving you guys an example of how this works. I have a friend that told me he too has bought followers because he wanted to gain quick exposure and didn’t have time to get them legitimately. Welp, there you have it folks, any thoughts on this? I had a few people leave comments on my instagram last night and state that, well that means that they have a “recommended page” but this is also coming from the same folks who too looks like their page has bought followers as well, so umm…LOL! Will you look at your fav celebs, companies, brands sideways now or will you still follow them? Chime in! xoxo
