“On Monday, [Jarrett Hill] had ‘somewhere between 1750-1800 followers,’ and today, the count is 18,800.

But that doesn’t impress him so much.

‘I wasn’t a person who really cared about how many followers I had,’ says Hill, who has been without a full-time job since being laid off from his producer / digital on-camera reporter gig at ABC Action News WFTS in Florida in April 2015.

‘I looked more at engagement, focused on responses and using it to discuss things with people.'”
