With a starting total of 8506 followers, it is now possible to bet on how many followers Ladbrokes News will gain on Twitter over the course of the next week, and 1801-2000 looks an interesting proposition at 8/1.
The account can be followed at @LadbrokesNews, and with streams of Grand National tweets certain to dominate the social networking site over the coming weekend, it looks wise to bet on the highest possible number of people to begin following.
Dependant on the profile of previous events, the Twitter account has gained anything from 200-600 followers, and punters can back between 201 and 400 accounts choosing to follow at 10/1, while it is an 8/1 chance that between 401 and 600 followers are gained by 11.59am on 18 May.
However, with the Grand National a worldwide spectacle, and an event that attracts mass media coverage, a larger than usual number of people will take an interest in betting on the Aintree meeting, and in turn could take an interest in the @LadbrokesNews Twitter account.
Terms such as ‘Grand National’ are almost certain to trend by Saturday, and possibly earlier, and with recent tweets from the @LadbrokesNews account frequently discussing the same event, it will gain exposure to a massive amount of people.
Retweets will of course aid in attracting more attention to the account, and with many willing to associate with a company as prestigious as Ladbrokes, it is reasonable to suggest that these may occur from some high-profile accounts.
Other prices include 33/1 that the Grand National helps attract less than 200 new followers.
