After the first day with the new Twitter account, NBC’s Lauer has accumulated just under 130,000 followers as of the time of this writing.
Ok…impressed! Justin has driven this to 100k in five hours! Still a way to go till tat media guy streaks. — Matt Lauer (@MLauer) June 15, 2012
Will the exponential growth of Lauer’s Twitter account continue, or was it simply a one-day stunt?
