This isn’t impossible—even without resorting to those spam messages promising 2,000 new followers in two days or whatever—but those Bieber-level followings are only ever going to be reached by the likes of, well, Justin Bieber. And like anything else truly worth achieving, building an audience is generally a slow and steady process (unless Brent Musburger drools all over you on the air) that requires both creativity and originality. But who has time for all that?

There is an easier way to Twitter infamy, and it doesn’t require adding any new followers at all, although at times it helps to have the backup. There’s also no wait time. And while it may not be anything that shows up on your profile or improves your Klout score, it will give you the immediate satisfaction of a job well done.
