FAO Justin Bieber

Hello Justin.

You will not reply to this message, in fact you probably won't even read it. Nevertheless what I have to say is of grave importance.

As you are aware you have amassed a healthy following on Twitter. Now I, amongst others, remember the days when you had a 'mere' 500,000 followers.
During these days you did whatever was in your power to tweet everybody back even if it was just a "Hello" or a "Thank you."
These simple tweets to your fans were regarded by them to be a huge honour which they would share with their friends and followers with great enthusiasm.

These days however, things have changed. I appreciate that with the amount of followers you now have it would be impossible to tweet them all back, and indeed this is not my suggestion.
But what I do suggest, on behalf of the 82,000 that have UNfollowed you since your change in attitude, is to go back to the days when you tweet back random fans and make them feel as special as you no doubt feel today.
All your account is used for today is to promote your music or the various edits of your movie which seem to be realised every week.
I am not a fan, and I do not require a tweet back from you to appreciate what I have on Twitter, but as I'm sure you will understand, there are many people that want the 'old' Justin back.
Do not let your fans down, they are who made you, and they can ultimately destroy what you have.

Please heed my warning, and know that I am not lying.

Let the game begin.

10,000 Reasons To Be Proud

Hello TeamJigsaw,

As some of you may of realised, I never left, this is the same Jigsaw that started the account way back in April 2010.
You may ask why I suggested that a new Jigsaw was taking over, well, it was a game which I needed to play to help me find out a few things about you.

Firstly I wanted to monitor peoples reactions when faced with, (As far as they knew) a completely new person who had taken over an account they follow.
Would they unfollow?
Would they abuse?
Would they pledge support?

Well looking back they did all three.
The most interesting comments I found were the ones which said either "I like the new Jigsaw better" or equally "I miss the old Jigsaw he was so much better than this one".
I also received tweets from people I had recently unfollowed due to abusive or racist/sexist comments asking the 'new' Jigsaw for a follow as if nothing had happened.

Secondly, and more importantly, I wanted it to pose as a warning to the younger community of Twitter, these kids, some as young as 11 or 12, have set up Twitter accounts with or without their parents knowledge, and are talking to and sending pictures to people who they think are of a similar age but in many cases are not.
We are all aware of the dark side of Twitter and how it can be used by the scum of our community for their own sick games and pleasure. So I wanted to show these kids how you think you can be talking to someone on here and it's not who you think it is.
This is a very real problem and needs to be addressed asap.

Forgive my deceitfulness but its just something I had been wanting to do for a long time.

Remember what I've always said, everything I tweet could be part of a game.

Stay alert.
