Twit Off: Did Neumann Just Take the Lead?

Since last month we have been monitoring the Twit Off between Republican Gubernatorial candidates Scott Walker and Mark Neumann. So far we have learned that Neumann nearly caught up to Walker in only a matter of weeks. Then we analyzed how macho each candidate's Twitter feeds were (sadly lacking). Now we have a couple additional updates in our award winning coverage of the great Twit Off.
  • First Capper alerted us to the fact that Scott Walker may be cheating in a desperate attempt to win the Twit Off.

  • Second, it appears that Neumann has started a second feed exclusively for his campaign staff (I didn't know that he had one yet).

Here are the latest raw numbers in the Twit Off:

Scott Walker: 1,718 followers after 493 Tweets

Mark Neumann: 1,386 followers after 148 Tweets

Neumann Campaign Staff: 496 followers after 31 Tweets

So who is really in the lead? Do we combine both of Neumann's Twitter feeds? Do we penalize Walker for possibly cheating? Either way, it remains much closer than we thought it would at this point. Given Walker's huge head start, I guess that makes him the big loser for now.

Like what? Becoming an intern for the Walking failure from Wauwatosa?
