Ashton Kutcher, Britney Spears, and CNNbrk are all competing with hitting one million followers on Twitter first.  Now discussion board website 4chan wants to get it on the action by creating a script that allows users to create thousands of fake Twitter accounts and make them follow a specific user.

“Honestly, if either of them win, the entire internet f**king loses,” stated a user on the 4chan. “What say we miraculously beat them to the punch with an all-new account?”  The Twitter account being used is called basementdad which is named after Josef Fritzl in Austria.  Fritzl is the man who was charged for sexually abusing his own daughter in his basement for over 24 years.  So far the basementdad account has over 30,000 users.

“We’re aware of it and we’re monitoring the situation,” stated Del Harvey, who oversees abuse on Twitter. “It’s not just one person.”  This is the first time that adding a million users to a specific Twitter account using scripts has been attempted.
