A Twitter account + followers for sale

Did you ever think this was possible? Someone is selling Twitter account + followers on eBay. He explains his decision saying:

I really love my Twitter account but I feel like I haven’t been using it the way I want to. Quite honestly, I feel sorry for all of my followers because they wind up with my tweets in their timelines and I haven’t been able to utilize the medium the way I want to. I also participate in another Twitter account over on Rocketboom so I’m thinking I’ll post more over there and start up a new account to do what I want to do next.

It would be silly to just delete this account I have here, especially if there is someone out there that had like interests and had something to say or wanted to get involved in some relevant conversations. In terms of monetary value, I have no expectations or needs at all so I decided not to put a minimum bid on this. Whatever will be, will be.

His twitter account has 1400 followers, the bid so far is at $455. I wonder if this trend might be passed on to Facebook or even Flickr.

I would not want to be on his list of followers, who knows what the new buyer is going to be up to? Plus, he is using his friends/followers and making money out of them! lol.

If it were someone in the same field, talking about things that got his followers to "follow" him, then it could make sense.
