Despite only having been on Twitter since shortly before The Events, the unusual but rapid climb of a certain handsomely dressed mind mingler has raised an eyebrow or two. Many of you have questioned as to how Mr  Brown has managed to achieve such results in such a short period of time (as if we’d tell you!) – but all talk of embedded messages and subliminal tweeting is hugely encouraged.

So now in to the UK top 20 slides Mr Brown along with an increase in followers that is usually reserved for those with 1million+ followers.

I’m sure this is all down to his devastating wit and repartee and has urged many of you to vote for him on the Mashable Awards as Most Goateed Twitter User – very nice of you all and thank you so much for the support and lovely messages.

We’re looking to encourage more of the Enigma Crew on to twitter when the next tour goes out. In the mean time you can follow (@lordcoopy – for art updates and tour news, @phillisdorris – for all the stuff too naughty to put on here and @AbeoDbart – for technical and twitter tips).

I’m sure this has more to do with your already-high profile and popularity than any tricks of the mind.

Well, what can I say??? Congratulations for being a Top 20 Tweeter or Twitterer (whatever), Derren!!! πŸ˜€

I’ve been a proud follower of Derren/Brown Towers for ages now and it’s quite astonishing how the numbers are growing.& keep ON growing (which they will, of course!)

Derren, along with only a few others, is one of the rare tweeters in that I eagerly await on what he has to say and I always choose wisely what I say in return. Politeness & pleasantness cost nothing, do they? πŸ™‚

Enough of my gushing, am off to vote for Derren in yet another Mashable award! πŸ˜‰

Don’t be fooled people, this is just the begin in Derren’s greater plan of world domination. I can see it now he is slowly putting the pieces together to take over the world. Asquoted from The Brain: The entire world will beg to bow before me, their charismatic despot.

Oh, oh .. it’s the voting that got him in the top 20 … Hm … Abeo made a bot? Derren can’t be that popular .. not him .. then we dont have exclusive rights on him anymore … stop it, immediately!.
