Our latest entrant into the “Think Before You Tweet” club is none other than the social media prince himself- Justin Bieber.
According to CBS, Bieber recently tweeted “Call me right now” and a phone number with the last digit a question mark.
There are over 400 stat posts on DMR. Browse the full list here.
Unfortunately for a couple of unsuspecting Dallas residents that happened to have the first nine phone number digits in common with the tweeted number. Bieber’s fans apparently didn’t understand that it was some sort of prank. These two individuals have been receiving scores of calls from the singer’s fans ever since the tweet.
As CBS reports, one of the individuals being harassed by Bieber fans is considering suing him for damages. One would think that this will be settled before it goes very far, but still not a fun position to put yourself in regardless of your fame.
Seriously, why would Bieber, who by all accounts is a pretty bright guy, do this?
What do you think? Bonehead move or some sort of publicity stunt?
