Twitter Account Auctioned Off On eBay

Twitter Account Auctioned Off On eBay: "Rocketboom founder Andrew Baron is auctioning off his Twitter account @andrewbaron on eBay.

He has about 1,400 followers. Initially Baron's follower count dipped after he announced the sale last night but now his follower account has climbed to about 1450 because of all the discussion about the auction on Twitter.

As Andrew Baron explains in the eBay listing the new owner of the Twitter can change the name to a new one - providing the new name doesn't already exist on Twitter.

"The winner of this auction gets my account with all of my followers," he writes.

That's a new development, indeed. What more can I add to this? Capitalism is working.
