Posted: Oct 04, 2012 06:14 pm EDT
(Newsdesk/Tina Sjogren) Remember UK Kenton Cool, who allegedly got 5 million followers on twitter following his 2011 Everest summit?

If you too want to be loved but won't climb Everest for it, here goes a shortcut how-to from the Forbes mag.

"There are a number of services which sell fake Twitter followers for the socially deficient," says the news source. "Prices range from $10 for 1,000 auto-generated Twitter followers to $1,350 for 1,000,000 counterfeit followers."

While on the topic, here's more from Britain in ExWeb's news desk:

UK Ben Saunders has an idea: In October 2013 Ben and his team mates will attempt to make the first return journey to the South Pole on foot.
