Survival of the Hippest: 'Increase your social networth'

Posted By on Mon, Apr 12, 2010 at 4:51 PM

If you're a Twitter GEEK like so many of us are today, this might be a good way for you to increase your followers and get you some Twitter visibility in the real world.

Survival of the Hippest is an "entrepreneurial General Store" that offers handcrafted jewelry (silver or gold) to pimp out your Twitter name or hashtag. Silver starts at $49.95 and gold is from $89.95. Sure, it's a little expensive, but you want to add followers, don't you? With one of these, all people have to do is look at your neck to see what your Twitter handle is — beats having to follow a buttload of people in hopes that they'll follow you back!

Honestly though, I think if I had my Twitter handle put on a necklace (@qcklepto), when I went shopping, store owners might be a little nervous.

Thanks to our online producer Priscilla Tsai (her Twitter handle is @prisciallatsai) for the tip!
