Exclusive: Alan Carr Throws Caution To The Wind, Follows Three People

The Twittersphere was shocked today by reports that Alan Carr had abandoned his zero-follow policy and was now, in fact, following three people.

Alan Carr

Carr, an English stand-up comedian and television personality, was alleged to have said, “I get it! I finally get it!” to family, close friends and other famous people on Twitter.

BBC Radio 1 DJ, Chris Moyles, considered by many experts to be the first person to truly ‘get’ Twitter, was unavailable for comment, as was Lady GaGa, who appears to be the only celebrity left on the network who refuses to follow absolutely anybody.

Analysts expect Carr to be following some fourteen users by the end of the year.

UPDATE: Shortly after writing this article, @ladygaga suddenly followed 160+ people. Coincidence? Probably, but you never know. :)
