Huge Follower Count Of Celebrity Solicitor Dean Dunham Plummets As Fear Spreads About Being Outed for Buying Twitter Disciples

The other week we reported the spectacular – and rather unnatural – growth in the Twitter follower count of police commissioner candidate Mervyn Barrett OBE.

Perhaps self-styled “celebrity lawyer” Dean Dunham (pictured), purveyor of legal advice in The Sun, read our article. Because since then Dunham’s enormous Twitter follower account – which once stood at well in excess of 72,000 – has been in freefall…

According to Twitter Counter, the esteemed lawyer lost 2,831 followers yesterday, following a lengthy run of exactly 147 Twitter devotee desertions a day – leaving his follower count at a mere 69,029 (see graph below).

There was consolation for Dunham, though, in the loyalty shown by the likes of “Cherise Bozek” (pictured below), a “qualified reader” from Copenhagen, who, alongside tens of thousands of other disciples of the solicitor, has stubbornly refused to join the mounting exodus.

Legal Cheek approached Dunham for comment this morning, and received this response: “We think that my account was hijacked and as a result silly messages were being sent from my account.”

    I still think this is all a non story but am loving the fact that it winds so many people up.

    Keep it up. Please.

    PAUL AND SANDRA DUNHAM, PARENTS OF DEAN DUNHAM ARE DUE TO BE EXTRADITED TO THE USA TODAY. THEY HAVE IN FACT ENDED UP IN HOSPITAL

    Where is their super lawyer, multi-millionaire son and father of their 5 granchildren, Dean Dunham when they need him? I have not seen him mentioned once throughout their ordeal. Too busy defending a child abuser called Freddie Starr I guess. It seems strange that if they are innocent, their own son, a lawyer has kept so quiet. That son purports to be a multi-millionaire. Surely he could therefore stump up the bail to stop his own parents going to jail while they await trial. Come on Dean, time to step forward and be counted instead of hiding behind your many personas.

    Mr Starr’s Lawyer Dean Dunham should maybe focus his energy on helping his parents Paul and Sandra Dunham fight their high profile extradition to the USA instead of disowning them, not one tweet from him regarding this!. Worried it could effect his Lawyer to the celebrities status he has chose his career over family.
