Twitter followers are expensive as a company is suing its former employee for keeping the followers he maintained on his professional account after leaving them.
Noah Kravitz left PhoneDog in October 2010 on good terms. Now the company is suing him for $340,000 for the 17,000 followers he kept after he quit the position. The followers have been valued at $2.50 per month over a period of eight months.
Kravitz told the New York Times that PhoneDog told him he could keep his followers, as long as he continued to Tweet about the company. But it looks like that alleged gentleman’s agreement is now putting him in trouble as he’s now in a legal battle with his former employee over the Twitter followers.
