Why You Shouldn’t Buy Followers On Twitter

If you’re just starting out on Twitter or you’ve had a profile for a while and you have a low amount of followers, you might be tempted to buy a bunch of followers in order to seem credible. The thing is, that can actually end up doing more harm than good. These are a few reasons why you shouldn’t buy followers on Twitter:

1. It Makes You Look Less Credible

On the surface, you may think that having a high number of fake followers will make you look popular and credible, but there are many websites online that can scan your account and reveal how many fake followers you have.

Also, anyone can look through your followers and see that most of them are eggs, inactive profiles or spam bots. That can really negatively affect your credibility on Twitter.

2. It Makes It Harder To Measure Your Progress

When you buy fake followers, they aren’t permanent. Your bot followers will eventually get suspended by Twitter or unfollow you. This makes it really difficult to measure your growth. When your followers keep dropping off it doesn’t make it easy to keep track of the followers you’re gaining. This makes it harder to see what actions are actually benefitting your profile and entertaining your audience.

3. It Makes You Look Silly

If you have 20,000 followers and you only get 2 retweets on your tweets, it makes you look very silly. It gives everyone the impression that you’re not actually saying anything valuable or, even worse, that nobody cares. It also makes it very obvious to anyone with a little common sense that you have fake followers, and that’s not what you want right?

4. Buying Followers On Twitter Makes You Look Dishonest

If you purchase followers, you are lying to everyone who views your profile. In your attempt to create the illusion of popularity, you can instead make yourself look incredibly unpopular and untrustworthy.

The New Poltergeist: How I Feel About Movie Remakes

Let me start off by saying that I haven’t seen the new (or old) version of Poltergeist and this is not a review. This post is about my feelings towards the recent trend of remaking old movies within the film industry.

I fully intend to watch the new version of Poltergeist at some point, although I’m not rushing to do so. That has more to do with the free time I currently have than my opinions on remakes though. I’ve watched a few reviews and the common theme I found (as with most remakes) was that many people feel like this film wasn’t needed or original enough. I personally think the trailer looks alright, sans the acting of the children.

I feel that a lot of people don’t really understand the thought process behind the recent flush of remakes in Hollywood. You may believe that these films are made to make money, and you could be right, but the more important question is, who is the target audience for these remakes?

People who watched the original usually hate remakes. I can relate to this (the remake of Oldboy was very disappointing, almost offensively whack compared to the original), but what if these films are made for audiences that didn’t see the original? I personally believe that remakes, like most entertainment, are targeted at people under the age of 25. These people are much less likely to have seen the original version of a remake.

I hate any old films that have action and/or special effects. 90% of them look like crap in this day and age (in my humble opinion). I rarely like to watch a film that was made before I was born (in 1993), unless it’s heavily focused on dialogue and intrigue and has little to no special effects.

That’s why I don’t mind watching remakes at all (as long as I haven’t seen the original). There are many critically acclaimed films that I will never go back and watch because they age as well as milk left out in the sun. I’m happy, even relieved, that I can instead watch a glossy version of Poltergeist that can meet today’s standards in picture quality and special effects.

Watch Your Favourite Game Of Thrones Characters Sing With Coldplay

Coldplay Presents Game of Thrones: The Musical?

If you wanted to see your favourite Game Of Thrones characters sing and dance instead of plot and kill, you’ve come to the right place. 

For Red Nose Day on NBC, Coldplay and the cast of Game of Thrones joined forces to create a funny musical sketch full of references to the popular HBO series.

As if that wasn’t cool enough, Liam Neeson narrates the whole thing with a hilarious mix of seriousness and witty humour.

Many prominent Game Of Thrones characters sing silly songs that relate to their past storylines and, apart from that element of the sketch, the writing in-between all the singing and dancing is comedy gold. These actors really showcase their diversity in addition to their ‘fun side’, while the members of Coldplay also do a surprisingly good job at acting.

I have to mention that Peter Dinklage’s part in the sketch was EPIC. He sings about the fact that his character Tyrion is yet to perish in the show where being honourable usually means welcoming death with wide open arms. Both the performance and the intro to that performance was hilarious.

Not For The Radio: The UK Version Of The Breakfast Club? [@NFTROfficial]

Not For The Radio is a great new YouTube show presented by Duane Jones aka Vis (Renowned), Posty (GRM Daily) and Chams (Face4Music). They’ve taken the familiar format used by The Breakfast Club in the US and bring us no holds barred interviews from a variety of UK urban artists. I was personally hoping we would eventually have a UK version of The Breakfast Club as I enjoy their interviews very much, and Not For The Radio does a pretty good job of executing that.




They ask the kind of questions that the people want to know, like: Is Lethal B a millionaire? How the hell did Tulisa beat a cocaine dealing case? How does Jammer feel about the Chip Vs Tinie beef? How does Tinchy Stryder feeling about drinking a pigs anus on primetime TV? And much more.

These interviews provide great insight into the UK artists we know and love with loads of entertaining banter.

Below I’ve included all their latest interview with Tinchy Stryder, check out the NFTR YouTube channel for the rest of their videos, enjoy!

My New Music Video: Lighthouse

As my good old friend Albert Einstein once said:

“The definition of genius is taking the complex and making it simple.” 

This is the simplest video I have released thus far. It was, however, long and tedious to make, but I’m happy it’s done and finally out. 

The song serves as a metaphor for a supportive relationship. Lighthouse is also one of the few songs from my latest dance EP that I actually rap on.

You can buy Lighthouse and my latest EP, The Love Story, on iTunes or pay whatever you want for it over on BandCamp.

If you like it, please support it so I can continue to make music and put out all this content for you guys without dying of starvation.

Comment below and let me know what you think of the video.

The Tinie Tempah Vs Chip Beef Summary [@TinieTempah @OfficialChip]

If you’re confused regarding the grime ‘beef’ between Tinie Tempah and Chip, these videos should give you more than enough context and backstory to understand what actually happened.

This is where it all started according to Chip:

Then Chip came to drop a Fire In The Booth, a year after Tinie’s one, and this happened:




This led to a variety of people responding, but the person who capitalised the most off this situation was the Manchester MC Bugzy Malone:

Big Narstie also had something to add: 

Chip then released the Pepper Riddem

To which Devilman replied to in disses directed at both Skepta and Chip.

That resulted in Skepta releasing this song, which seems to be sending for Devilman with a sly dig at Chip also:

Bugzy Malone capitalised even further on this situation by releasing this diss track: 

Chip released his song The End as his last diss track in this whole debacle:

Other songs were released after, but thus ends the musical beef timeline. Tinie Tempah however, finally spoke on the situation in this interview:

And Chip voiced some more opinions in this interview with Sian Anderson:

Who do you think started this ‘beef’? Do you think it’s good or bad for the UK urban music scene? Do you think anyone in particular is in the wrong?
