Anyone who’s spent time on Twitter in the past few months especially has probably run into or at least heard of the “P U S S Y I N B I O”-type replies that posts regularly seem to attract.

Why are they so prevalent? Are they actually so successful that it’s worthwhile to do this? I do not understand who benefits from these, because there cannot be so many people clicking on these links that they’re effective… Can there?
