Look at the date l0l
and I thought the virtual youtubers were fast


This seems to be becoming something of a phenomenon... a big JP youtuber that I knew made a video about her too

you realize that people do it for them.

Whenever they want a face to be the next sensation, people will sponsor and bot to get them at the front page.

it's not a phenomenon, its manipulation in order to suck viewers in for mind numbing content.

To me that is less impressive than someone having 5k+ subs without a single video. I guess that is one way to avoid copyright strikes.

^ That. There are tons of companies that offer these exact services even just for rando Youtubers / Twitter. According to her analytics she had 160k subs before uploading anything. Then added 315k in one day. Then 163k the next day.

Prepare to be super impressed then. Seeing as she magically got 130,512 in a single day before uploading a single video:

I'm puzzled as to why this needed explaining assuming that I've seen the 2nd video that I myself posted. In my mind, I don't really care how people pull it off as long as they pull it off.

Just like one of my friends got rich boting people's Instagram followers and Twitter.

Then they caught on to how much money he was making and taking vacations every other week.

He doesn't go out much now.

If you think that this is good, you're a joke for thinking this way

I kinda expected you to take my "In my mind, I don't really care how people pull it off as long as they pull it off." quote way out of context and you actually did it. My quote most certainly isn't without exceptions(it most certainly does not apply to taking life for money for example) even if my resistance to being fazed is greater than that of most people.

The situations you speak of may exist but the knee-jerk reaction to this new youtuber seems unwarranted when there's little evidence of this actress herself having done anything terrible. She already had a lot of coverage via JP news and youtubers who knew her for her work even if some randoms decided to bot her on top of that. If something is not bad enough for me to care, then I don't since life is too short for that. There's a difference between supporting someone's methods and being indifferent. You may find it strange that I care more about the subs records than how she did it but for me, it's the other way around. You want to find ways to be offended at this person? I don't. We can only agree to disagree.

I half-expected people to take a cold or cynical outsider view of this situation but damn.

Buddy. I don't believe half the shit I see anymore, what can you believe anymore? What can you honestly believe in the entertainment industry?

This isn't something to look up to, it sickens me to know that people blindly follow something that never even had a chance in the first place.

playing a video game? What else is that channel going to come out with?

I'm not offended, I'm sick and tired of the same old format of bullshit, people playing a video game making stupid noises.

People have hundreds of thousands of dollars playing video games, getting sponsored by mobile games so they can put on this fake nonsense about how amazing it is, when they probably don't give one single fuck about it.

It's all a scam. The perpetual cycle of bullshit, and all they need is a familiar face to sucker you in.

*Spits on the ground* You're welcome, we do it for the money, that's all they ever do, and it doesn't matter what they tell You, at the end of the day, it's for the money. Doesn't matter how kind of a person they are, it's the fact that this is what the world desires out of entertainment. They know it, I know it, you know it

sometimes people get legit subs/followers/etc but when it's someone without bots it can take awhile to accumulate. on this one site I'm on, been almost two years and I have gotten over 600 followers, however, I haven't pimped myself out either with bots dashing in to make me seem more popular than I really am. it's literally been in the news several times now that they are using bots in order to beef up their subscribers/other and/or views. programs are being written, and people are then using these programs in order to give people fake digits and I believe it's actually a job, an unfair job, but a job all the same. couple links pulled at random https://www.dailydot.com/news/botting-bot-botted-youtube-definition-how/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_bot and if you're eager enough to get this feature too, they have a webpage that you can sign up on and then you're on your way to then take a further disadvantage to the system. there are consequences to cheating and being a thief, it'll eventually catch up to a person and it's a shame people are so desperate and pathetic to actually go in this direction to begin with.
