Twitter Account and Followers For Sale

Andrew Baron really loves his Twitter account, but he feels like he hasn't been using it the way he wants to. Instead of deleting his account, he decided it to sell on Ebay.

The latest bid is currently 1,125.00 USD. As Andrew Baron currently has 1,636 followers, this means that each follower is valuated at 0.69 USD.

The problem is that buying followers is like buying air. What do you really know about the followers of a Twitter account ? Can the buyer be sure that the information followers put in their profiles is correct ? Furthermore, what would the buyer be able to do with a list of followers from a bought Twitter account ? Are the followers part of the target audience for the goods or services you want to sell ? Will the buyer be able to sell something to them ? Can the buyer convert them into paying subscribers of whatever service ? Will the followers click on the ads on the buyers's site ? Will the followers remain followers or will they abandon ?

Will Ebay allow this sale of a digital good ? Will Twitter delete this account when the sale effectively takes place ? Who will be the next one to sell his Twitter account ?

There are clearly more questions than answers.
