Looking for Twitter "Fame"?
And now, your chance at 15 minutes of online fame. Well sort of 15 minutes. (It’s actually spread over 24 hours.)
A website called FAME awards thousands of twitter followers, for one day only, to its daily winner. The followers are made up everyone else in the entry pool.
But before you sign up, you might want to figure out what to do with all the new-found online attention. It appears that Thursday’s winner had a little trouble with all the traffic to his website. @MichaelBykov “ahh shoot you guys crashed my blog LOL.. give me 10 mins to bring it back up. Quit pounding it :0”
