This Internet millionaire is terribly bored

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA: An Australian, who became a millionaire at the age of 25 by setting up an Internet firm, says he has "never been so bored" in his life.

Leon Hill, a Brisbane resident who founded, angered social networking sites when he developed a service that sells Twitter followers and Facebook fans.

Courier Mail reported 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.

Lawyes were hired by Facebook and Twitter to pursue 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.
