Comedian pitches $100k for Twitter account
Drew Carey eyes @drew for charity
US comedian Drew Carey has bid a $100k charitable donation for the @drew Twitter account - if he gains 100,000 followers by 9 November.
The account has been put up for grabs by Drew Olanoff. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma back in May, and decided to auction off his Twitter presence in support of the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
Cue an initial bid of $25k from the Whose Line Is It Anyway? star, later upped to $100k if he hits the aforementioned followers target. He's currently at 30,000 Twitter admirers, and rising.
Another notable Drew rumoured to be eying the @drew account is Drew Barrymore, but she's apparently not the most enthusiatic Twitterer, and is keeping resolutely schtum on the matter.
Drew Olanoff also has a fundraising site which entertainingly invites the public to blame their woes on his cancer. To date, 12,909 people have blamed 31,134 things on Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
