I am bored, says Australian millionaire

Leon Hill, a Brisbane resident who founded uSocial.net, angered social networking sites when he developed a service that sells Twitter followers and Facebook fans. Courier Mail reported on Monday that Hill's business zoomed in the past six months. He offers 1,000 Facebook fans for $197 or up to 5,000 fans for $727 while over 1,000 Twitter followers costs $87.

Lawyers were hired by Facebook and Twitter to pursue uSocial.net but they recently ceased all action as, Hill says, he was "doing nothing illegal". Hill, who is now "semi-retired", has raked in over $500,000 this year, and has $1 million worth of business assets.

He says now his only worry is boredom. "With the business pretty much able to run itself now, I don't really have to do anything. I've never been so bored in my life and I really need a hobby," Hill was quoted as saying.
