Lucky Sperm Linus Is Giving Away $100K On Twitter In What Appears To Be A Data Collection Scam, And It’s Working Perfectly As Pathetic People Beg For Scraps

This is lucky sperm Bill Pulte.

He’s a lucky sperm 31 year old who made Forbes 40 under 40 list at the age of 25 for being the son of a son of someone who made a shitload of money in real estate.

On July 11 he made headlines by tweeting out that he would be giving away $1 million dollars on Twitter if he got to 1 million followers.

At the time he had 34,000 followers.

He tries to get celebrities to retweet him, and was successful in getting Trump to do so.

He was trending on Twitter today because he gives away money to random people in small amounts (couple hundred bucks here and there, or a couple thousand bucks if you’re lucky).

He seems to give away bitcoin a lot.

And his tactics have the stench of Elon Musk all over them. Coincidentally he’s also giving away a Tesla.

He’s gotten a ton of attention from the media.

Here is how it works: Pulte tweets that he is giving away a certain amount of money (say $500) and then mentions a few criteria. After the retweets and mentions start coming in, he has a three-person team he hired to sift through them and determine that they are who they say they are (which is an issue on social media) and that their needs are legitimate.

The Internet is felating this dude as the second coming of Andrew Carnegie, and indeed his contributions are legitimate. But when I see people like this I’m immediately skeptical of what they’re really trying to do. So when I saw this shit today:

I knew there had to be some kind of scam going on here.

He calls his followers “teammates” and tells them they’re part of his team to give food and shelter to people in need.

On social media followers are like currency. When you get more followers you can market to a larger audience. His audience has grown from 34K to over 400K in a month. Next thing you know he’s tweeting shit like this.

Translation – a sunglasses company saw how much interaction I’m getting, and the fact that I’m trending on Twitter, and they’re offering to pay me to do promotional giveaways for their sunglasses under the guise that we’re both being philanthropic.

He says he’s being inundated with requests from companies who want to “be involved” in his “MISSION,” and used this as a way to get more “volunteer teammates” and emails.

If you email him looking to become involved he knows it’s not a burner email account. Legitimate email addresses are just as good as money to marketing companies. You get 100,000 email addresses and you can sell that to people looking to market to new audiences.

More importantly, Facebook, Google, and Twitter made their money by collecting data on users and selling it. Google Cambridge Analytica scandal if you were in a cave for the last two years. Twitter lets you access your followers data, which is why he’s insistent that you not only follow him, but bring in more followers for him too.

AND he urges people to turn on notifications, which alert you whenever he tweets.

Click on any of his tweets and you’ll see thousands of people lining up, begging for free money. I’m sure he feels very good about himself for doing this, but it’s really quite pathetic to see people grovel at this lucky sperm for scraps.

You can’t buy this kind of publicity, which in my opinion is what his whole scheme here is. He makes a small investment by giving money away to strangers on the Internet. The audience he gains, and the data he gains from them, is worth much, much more than the $100,000 he’s given away so far. The amount of data he’s likely acquired is probably worth millions, and he can do what he wants with that information at this point. He’s gone from an irrelevant lucky sperm to to a guy making appearances on Fox and Friends and rubbing shoulders with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

He markets towards trends, like back to school.

“You in?”

That’s a cheap gimmicky way to get people to reply. Once you do that he’s got you. He can analyze information on teachers. He knows what they need. He knows where they’re from. That kind of information is invaluable for companies who want to sell stuff to teachers.

Is he breaking any laws? Nope. But he’s collecting all this data under false pretenses. He knows that the vast majority of people who follow him and give him their legitimate email addresses won’t see a dime from him, but they will be his currency moving forward. He can set up a chat-bot to scrub his list of followers for key words, trends, locations, interests, and other data that he can sell for a huge profit. And all he had to do was give some morons a couple hundred bucks of grandpa’s inheritance money. Now he can feel like he’s an actual businessman, as opposed to some shitstain who hit the raw dog lottery.

Keep in mind, 2020 is just around the corner. Foreign governments try to use Twitter and Facebook to spread misinformation to voters. His list of followers contains people’s biggest problems, since they’re begging him for money.  Let’s say he finds out that in Michigan student loan debt or healthcare was the biggest reason people asked for money. He can sell that information to the campaign of his choice. He could have campaigns bid for that information as they try to win states in the primaries. He comes across as apolitical, which is smart because then he can gain followers from both sides of the aisle. The possibilities here are really limitless. Now this guy has a list and he can do whatever he wants with it, and everyone and their mother is sucking his dick because they’re too stupid to see what’s really going on here.

And in case you think I’ve gone down the Alex Jones expressway one too many times, a reporter from the Daily Mail tweeted out that he’d be interviewing shitstain tomorrow, and wanted to see if anyone had any questions they’d like him to ask. Check out this response he got.

The same user who alerted us to this story didn’t get a response so he tweeted a similar concern to the lucky sperm himself.

And just like that…..

Shady fucker. Dude has 400,000+ followers. He probably gets a million notifications a day. That means he has a team reading them all and he’s told them to censor anyone who doubts his motives. Wouldn’t want healthy public skepticism flooding his replies. That wouldn’t be good for business now would it?

    Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat they are all internet wastelands. I don’t mind reading about shirt on social media on sites like TBS, Daily Wire, Zerohedge, etc but social media can kiss my royal irish ass.

      And speaking of people that we wish would fuck off, here’s numero uno.

      Look Mr Gay, you hate everything about this place. It’s clearly not for you. Off you fuck. That would be best.

    Maybe Loonie Lizzie is right. Perhaps it is time to break up high tech, such as google, twitter, and facebook, for starters. These companies are using their platforms to push their progressive agendas, while stifling the free speech of conservatives. Google refuses to do anything to help our military, because the workers are anti-military, but they are helping China, who in turns gives everything to the Chinese military. We allowed IBM to sell their PC division to China. Because of us, China will dominate the world, and Trump realizes this, but Democrats and Republicans won’t support him because the politicians like the status quo.

    If you write to me asking for money, I will send it to you as long as you don’t tell anybody I gave it to you.

    I’m more interested in why Ninja move to Mixer. People are guessing that MicroSoft is paying Ninja 1.5 million minimum for the move.

    Ninja live streams Fortnite games he plays in.

    MIxer is a Twitch wanna-be. When Ninja moved Mixer attracted 370,000 new subscribers.

    Interesting article, sheds light on the subject about which I know almost nothing. I’m guessing your usual tribe of bigots and neo-Nazis are reading this and scratching their big dumb heads about what to say.

      I’m a left-leaning British chap and I know just what to say.

      It’s this – “How about you fuck off for about 25 years.”

          Yes, JTJ.

          That’s Father Jack Hackett from the series “Father Ted” – a work of comedy genius. 🙂

      Why do have to be like this, BitchyBitch? For every DoubleEweDoubleEwe for-fuck’s-sake Why (I’d be concerned for the rear end health of his flock), there are many more sane reasonable people who are frustrated by the gimme ratchet culture et al. And some of that concern is the cavalier denial of access on platforms like Twitter and Facebook, just for asking sincere questions or providing content that hurt the feelings of bad actors. I fully agree with Mr. Scratcher’s response to you. I imagine if we tried to have a FB dialogue you’d block us too.

      • Dick Scratcher
        August 12, 2019 at 10:46 am

        Wise words, Brother Wick.

        Mr Bitch has already decided that we are closed-minded bigots.

        In a bitter twist of irony, it’s us that actually want to engage in the debate, whilst the the US left just screams “hate speech” or “racism” if you dare to have the temerity to disagree with their “ideologies”. Strange, huh?
