DRAGONS newcomer Steven Bartlett has claimed that a teenager has turned down offers of at least a million pounds for his Twitter page.
The 29 year old investor, who has an estimated fortune of £50m, spoke out about his Politics 4 All account, which recently disappeared.
The account that posts political news snippets from other sources is run by student Nick Moar and a small team.
He claims one company “offered Nick a hefty seven-figure price to buy the page” in the days before it was taken down.
Steven added: “Nick – a broken 19-year student – said no and insisted it was to maintain independence.”
“Whether you like politics for all or not, they’ve generated over a billion impressions on tweets critical of the current government and the recent Christmas party scandal,” he explained.
“Every screenshot I get on WhatsApp related to the Christmas party scandal originates from their page.”
Dragons ‘Den viewers will be introduced to Steven on tonight’s show, when he took his place in the table for the first time.
As the youngest Dragon ever to join the show, the businessman replaced Tej Lalvani in the show’s 19th series.
The Manchester-based entrepreneur runs several companies and has also published a book; Happy Sexy Millionaire: Unexpected truths about fulfillment, love and success,.
Steven dropped out of college to run the Media and Social Networking Chain he founded at the age of 22.
Five years later, he went public, and in 2021 he announced two new companies, Thirdweb and Flight Story.
His book makes the Sunday Times bestseller list, while his podcast, The Diary of a CEO, regularly tops the listenership charts.
