Thomas Levet wants more Twitter followers
By mustang6560 on 5/31/12
Does anyone want to see Thomas Levet play a round of golf dressed like Lady Gaga? If so, please follow him on Twitter.
@thomaslevetgolf tweeted: "If I go past 1M followers,I will play as lady Gaga my next tournament in the uk!!"Twitter is a great way for athletes to grow their personal and professional brands (see @bencranegolf), so I applaud Thomas for trying to increase his presence in the Twittersphere. However, I'm not sure he is going about it the right way.
First, his initial goal is way too high. He only has six thousand fans at the moment, which is a lot less than 1 million. He needs to set several intermediate goals like reaching 10k followers, 100k, 250k, and so on, and he can reward his followers in some way once he reaches each goal (upping the ridiculousness for each milestone). And second, I'm not really sure Lady Gaga was the right play. Do you want to see him dress in eccentric clothes and play a round of golf? I know I don't. I can barely stand the sight of blue jeans on the golf course so I know I'll hate whatever Gaga outfit he wears if he reaches his goal!
I wish him luck, though, in his social endeavors. If I could offer him one piece of advice, I'd say his goal should be to get Lady Gaga to retweet one of his tweets because she has over 25 million followers. I bet he would pick up a few followers if she did.

Nate, what ridiculous act will you perform if we boost your twitter following to 100?
"if she retweet him"?
Don't you have a proof-reader? Or at least a grammar check on your PC? :)
No thanks... one Lady Gaga is more than enough.
@bkuehn1952- Define "ridiculous".

@mustang6560: Start with the list of complaints from the private club gone wild and then use your imagination. ;)
