New York Times: The Follower Factory

New York Times: The Follower Factory. “THE REAL JESSICA RYCHLY is a Minnesota teenager with a broad smile and wavy hair. She likes reading and the rapper Post Malone. When she goes on Facebook or Twitter, she sometimes muses about being bored or trades jokes with friends. Occasionally, like many teenagers, she posts a duck-face selfie. But on Twitter, there is a version of Jessica that none of her friends or family would recognize.” This NYT story has a weird intro that made my browser slow a bit. (This is probably more about my computer than about the NYT, but be warned anyway.)
