Does It Make Sense To Buy Twitter Followers?

Of recent I started getting twitter followers and they are coming so fast.

I was excited about that and I shared my joy with one of my buddies. He was surprised because he didn’t know how I was doing. He asked, “Did you buy twitter followers”?

“Nope”, I replied.

I don’t believe in buying twitter followers. Not even on any social platform because I believe buying followers may not probably help you to achieve your goals of getting responsive followers.

I will like you to watch the funny video below to see the effect of buying followers.


The video was done by one funny and creative IG user with the username mfon_umoh.

When you watch the video, you will see the actor speaking Igbo language. Though the video is meant to be for fun, but it also describes the reality of buying followers on social platforms.

In the skit, the actor talks about having a lot of followers but only gets one like. The reason is simple, he bought followers.

Here are some reasons why you should not buy twitters followers.

Dead or Non-Existing Twitter Accounts

Most of the times, you are giving fake twitter accounts. This is because the accounts are either dead or non-existing. Most of the accounts are probably created by the social media platforms or twitter followers’ merchant.

The email addresses of the accounts are opened with free email services like gmail and yahoo. Even if you DM the owners of the accounts, they will never respond to you because the email addresses attached to the account which will help them to get notifications have already be abandoned or even deleted.

Wrong Set of Followers

Let’s even assume that the account are active, you may eventually found out that those people following you are not relevant for what you need them for. For example, you may want to have followers that understand English language but you just found out that every other person following you are writing and posting in Arabic language.

How will that help you?

Zero Engagement

One of the ways to know if you are being followed by real human being is in the engagement. Do you get likes when you drop a post? Do you get your post retweeted? Do you have comments? Are the people asking real questions that make you know that they are real human beings?

Though there is a lot of automation with the help of bots on twitter, not withstanding, you will know the difference based on the way the people are interacting with you.

For example, I made a post about the training we will be having and someone posted a comment asking for the description of the training location. That shows that you are being followed by real human being and not robot.

How Was I Able To Get A Lot of Followers In Just A Very Short Time?

Just like my friend, you may also be curious to know how I am getting followers very fast.

The way to do it is actually very simple and here is the secret.

  1. Follow more people and most of the times, they will reciprocate by following you back
  2. Post interesting things and more people will be attracted to your tweets and follow you.

But it is not easy to start following people manually especially if you are very busy.

What of posting regularly?

Have you seen some individuals posting almost every 5 minutes on twitter? Have you ever wondered if they don’t have any other work or something else to do in life than just posting on twitter?

Now there is a way to it.

I explained it in one of my Free Internet Marketing Seminars. Click here to watch the training video and see how I suddenly increased my twitter followers without lifting a finger.
