Did LeAnn Rimes Buy Twitter Followers?

Does LeAnn Rimes not have quite as many real followers as she appears to?

The country star has done plenty of feuding on Twitter with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville of late, but now LeAnn's Twitter feed is getting noticed for another reason.

LeAnn is drawing attention for the fact that her Twitter account quickly saw a dramatic increase in followers last week, according to Radar Online.

Between April 15 and April 16, LeAnn gained nearly 50,000 followers, including more than 16,000 in a 17-hour span. That's an awful lot of new fans at once.

As of now, she has just above 463,000 followers.

Some Twitter users speculate that LeAnn has purchased "Twitter bots." Indeed, many of LeAnn's new followers appear to have just the boring egg icon as their avatar, which is usually a sign that an account isn't being used by a real person.

That said, LeAnn's new album, Spitfire, was released for digital download in the UK on April 15, so it's possible that some of the recently added followers could be people who just bought the new album.

Regardless of whether the followers are fake or not, it's clear that LeAnn will keep everyone who follows her entertained.

Because if there's one thing we can say about LeAnn, it's that her Twitter feed is never boring.
