A look inside the fake follower business

People really, really like getting new Twitter followers. Sometimes it’s just about stroking egos addled with some instant gratification social media affords, but other times it’s at least a semi-practical aspiration – as insane as it sounds, people get jobs thanks to their ******************.com/buy-arabic-twitter acumen. So it makes sense that a cottage industry for boosting Twitter influence is booming, even if it’s not as helpful as the people plunking down their cards to buy followers think it is. You can’t go from zero to Justin Bieber on Twitter overnight without a little black magic, and in the Twitter follower business, this means resorting to some underhanded tricks to pump up numbers.

Came her for an in-depth journalistic report (I know, I know–I’m an idiot with such expectations) that exposed the seedy underbelly of the Twitter following world. Instead, all I got as this lousy spam. It’s not even a t-shirt, dammit.

Booooooo! I want my money back! This is fraudulently outrageous!

Actually, I have to have a reason to block someone - I don’t just do it without due consideration and in some cases a warning.

It is still important to get their profile taken down and any user can report this sort of thing to Customer Support. It is very helpful to the forum team if others help with the reporting since we already spend hours of volunteer time just moderating the forum. Also, if more than one person reports them the chances of a ban are increased. I encourage you to submit a ticket. If we all just ignore things except the ones on the forum, Fiverr will degrade for all of us.

Sometimes I think that CS has the easiest job in the world, just selecting a message from a small selection.

Then I remember that they have to deal with scary people who can’t articulate a thing. Then they just selected the most passive aggressive option.

Some of them do have a personality behind the multiple choice answers though 😉

You can’t, there’s a gate off the man road with policemen. You’re allowed to stand there and say stuff like “I bet the PM smells of wee” if they’re in a good mood. Otherwise, it’s a waste of time.

Beside being a designer, i also worked in digital marketing so i’m sure all followers services of Social fanpage are scam. They use sofware and some script to lie users to click on and then ( bump ) - follow your page without notice. So one day, when user realise that , they will unfollow your page. You lost your money for nothing.
Buyer should use that money to pay for ad running, cost can be low or high but your followers are real, not fake.

In our tests several years ago, purchasing 1000 followers, will disappear after a few months.

It takes 16 tweets to gain any interest in a products or service.

BTW, tweeter has financial problems and will eventually be sold off or acquired for their database.
