Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is fun-loving millionaire, Richard Branson.  What are his tweets like?  Who cares?  Maybe he’ll give us all money!

Okay, let’s rate Richard’s tweets.  It’s a smooth mix of plugs and stuff that he seems to be actually doing.  I give him a 7 for Insanity, a 9 for Mustness and a 9 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 8.3.  But for a cool milli0n, I will bump that up to a 9.3.
