The account with more than 14,000 followers was suddenly offered for sale, with the result that many of the fans blocked or have ontvolgd. A true fiasco for an influencer that is strongly committed to its presence on social media. Influencers can in fact be money or products to be offered in exchange for publicity on their account.
Meanwhile, a small startup from Antwerp, the account purchased and returned to the rightful owner, so let Schotte know. But given Romanie nothing more with the account could begin, she must start all over again. Her new account was named @romanieschotte and has already more than 3000 followers. They thank also all the friends who helped her through the new account. “Thank you for your support! Instagram itself did nothing, but some of you did anything to put me back on the road!”
