BRISBANE, Australia (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – President Obama, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber may seem popular on Twitter, but they’re faking it.

That’s the scoop from social media expert Leon Hill, founder of uSocial.net, a company that sells Twitter followers and Facebook friends to businesses so they can increase their marketing and popularity online.

Hill believes that companies aren’t the only ones buying online friends – big name celebrities are likely faking their following too.

He says there’s plenty of evidence to suggest that celebs and world leaders are increasing their online fanbase by “artificial means” just so they can look more influential than they actually are.

He figures that out of the top 100 users on Twitter with the most followers, at least 15 have increased their numbers artificially.

This is highly possible given that his own company sells “packages” of online friends, ranging from 1,000 cyber buddies to 100,000.
