How's the Abhisit-Thaksin race on Twitter faring?

The last time I checked (at 9.20 am today), Abhisit Vejjajiva and Thaksin Shinnawatr were still fighting for new followers on their Twitter accounts. Thaksin was ahead with 6,511 with Abhisit trailing with 4,923. Interestingly enough, Abhisit seems to be following other people much more than Thaksin. Abhisit was following 1,801 other people while Thaksin had only 3 he was interested in following.

In the Mr Twitter "contest" though, Abhisit was enjoying a far greater lead than Thaksin.

Bear in mind, of course, that neither Abhisit nor Thaksin is sitting in front of the computer or holding a mobile phone to update their Tweets. They each have their respective staff handling their Twitter accounts.

So what you read is all that "nominee" stuff again!
