Battle for the LGF Tweet Counter: Episode IIPosted: June 16, 2011
Last night, we posted a pretty entertaining thread to, um, remind everyone (including CJ) that the tweet counter adorning the top of every LGF article actually counts the number of “clicks” on the shortened bit.ly url, and not the real tweets (big, huge difference).
Now, I imagine that Johnson is trying to come up with the best explanation for all this, and we think that he’s going to stick with the “I originally said it was clicks” (which he did, back in ’09), and ignore the fact that he’s recently been referring to the figure as “retweets” for his boasts on twitter and in his own comment section. That’s fine.
And to be fair, even though any casual visitor to LGF would look at the counter at the top and assume that it was counting tweets, if you roll your mouse over the figure, it does tell you the truth:
At least, it does for the front page articles.
You see, to illustrate just how confused CJ apparently is on this very simple issue, we’ll show you what appears when you roll the mouse over the counter on one of the LGF Pages (articles in the member-authored section of LGF):
Yea…might want to fix that.

Update: Hopefully, we may just be the antidote to the poisonous LGF koolaid:
