Would Gary/the entire staff lie about how many retweets the Lisa G/Ronnie bit got?

    I could be wrong, but I don't think they got anywhere near 5,000 retweets in 4 minutes.

    I did a search on twitter and there were only 400 tweets for "#LisaKissRonnie" for the entire day.

    So then I did a search on "sternshow" and there were around 1,000 tweets to/from the account for the hour after Stern Show tweeted out "#LisaKissRonnie".

    Since they tweeted out "#LisaKissRonnie", the Stern Show account has only had 2,100 tweets, and for the entire day only around 2,300.

    Maybe the Twitter search engine is f'd up or I made a mistake. Only devoted 15 minutes to the above. I did the searches and then copy/pasted the results into MS Word. Word does the counting of the tweets automatically (I guess it wants to format bullet/numbering).

    Or it could be the show has no where near the listeners/people committed enough to tweet and they're full of shit :dontknow:

    You devoted fifteen minutes to this conspiracy and that's all you came up with? You're a regular Sherlock Holmes.

    to add some fuel to your fire

    howard claims to have millions of listeners

    but of those listeners he asks at first 10K to retweet two old bags kissing

    but then the next day drops it to 5K

    It says right on twitter "Retweeted 15,535 times". What is the mystery?

    What exactly is a retweet as opposed to a tweet?

    Where is that? I don't use Twitter. Like I said, maybe the Search function of twitter is f'd up

    Hey bobartbooey, you should probably refrain from concocting half-baked conspiracy theories about things you don't understand. Makes you look dumb.

    I just went to here:

    https://twitter.com/sternshow

    Then I scrolled down the page until I saw the original tweet that says "If you want to see Lisa G make out with Ronnie RETWEET this now! #LisaKissRonnie". Then I clicked on it and it shows "Retweeted 15,535 times".

    Well, that part I agree with. But it seems easy to at least see how many times a post was retweeted without spending 15 minutes in Word.

    Do you have a source confirming 80 percent of the retweets to that post directly came from fake followers?

    The whole thing was fucked up and clearly not as spontaneous as they were pretending. By tweeting the message to all their followers and asking them to respond they also showed they're afraid to do anything that might reveal how few listeners they actually have. They already knew they had enough followers to get 5000 retweets even though most of them probably weren't actually listening to the show. It was funny when they kept pretending it was so difficult and amazing to get that many responses.
