Want to Buy Twitter Followers? Think Again. Here’s Why.

If you’re thinking about buying twitter followers, you really need to think twice about it before losing your money. There’s a lot of snake oil selling companies on the web that promise they can get you 100s to 1000s, to 100s of thousands of visitors within 24 hours, a few days, or weeks. Let us help save you some pain. Don’t do it!

Why not buy twitter followers? I mean, it seems like such a deal, right? Wrong. You get what you pay for – really! Those running scams of buy 1000 twitter followers for $6 or buy 10,000 followers for $25, etc. are a total scam. They claim they’re “real followers” when in fact they’re 99.8% bots for fake accounts.

These “fake” twitter followers do nothing for you and/or your brand. You may have the “quantity” but will lack “quality” big time.

Here are a few reasons why you should not buy followers on Twitter.

#1 Very Low / No Engagement

When you buy followers on Twitter, you aren’t getting people who are interested or willing to engage with you or your brand. You are just buying numbers for your follower counter. Most likely not one of all your new and supposedly “real followers” will ever like or retweet any of your tweets. Let alone “buy” anything from your brand. Instead, you wasted a bunch of your time and your money buying crap.

#2 You May Have to Spam Your Followers

There are some Twitter Follower services that will ask to access your Twitter account. You don’t want to allow this. Why? Because they are likely going to send out multiple tweets as a way of advertising their way to increasing your follower count. This will most likely lead to annoying your real followers (assuming you have them) and will result with them unfollowing you. That’s not good. Why put in the time and effort to build your following, just to allow some fly-by-night service to piss off your followers so you can gain less engaged followers, let alone fake followers and bots. Don’t do this.

#3 Hurt Your Brand Reputation (You or Your Company)

Don’t be fake and sell out. It’s not too hard for people on Twitter to sniff your account out pretty quickly to see if you have a real following or a lot of fakes. If it looks like fake followers, people view it as BS and not engage with you, hence “follow” you. Sometimes, you’ll get some people or brands that call you out in tweets where other people can view them too. This can further damage your reputation and will require more of your time and effort to clean up your act. But, that’s likely not the primary reason you’re on twitter, since you’re looking to grow – not clean up a mess you made.

#4 The Twitter-verse Will Find out

People can easily see who follows you or take a glance at your recent tweets, how often you tweet, and how many likes and retweets your tweets get. You’re not fooling anyone who matters with shady tactics. Again, it’s super easy to sniff out if you or other accounts have real or fake followers with tools like: Fake Follower Check and Bot or Not
So, if your reputation, time, and money is important to you. Spend it on quality tasks and services that will help you build on a good quantity of twitter followers who are more engaged with you or your brand, opposed to all that time, effort, and money wasted on buying a lot of followers who will do nothing but hurt you.

Use this Twitter hack to find and keep your true fans

If you’ve used Tweepi, this situation may sound familiar, and you probably need this Twitter hack. You have an aggressive goal to grow your brand’s follower base–and fast. As you follow new people, many tweet back thrilled that an organization they love is now following them. Some have been fans and followers for years. But your following-to-follower ratio is creeping ever higher.

This is exactly the situation I found myself in recently. I wanted to preserve a healthy follow ratio, but with all that excitement, I didn’t want to risk unfollowing any of the brand’s uber-fans. How to separate the wheat from the chaff–at scale?

I discovered an easy way to solve that problem through IFTTT (If This Then That). If you haven’t used it before, IFTTT allows you to link different online tools to execute more complex tasks. Each set of actions is called a “recipe.”

For example, if a user posts on my hashtag on Instagram, then email me a link to the post. If rain is predicted tomorrow, then trigger an iPhone notification. If I need to get out of a meeting, call my phone. (For real!) They have a whole section of recipes to streamline social media that every social media pro should be aware of. Try it out — the more you use it, the more uses you’ll find for it.

The Solution

Back to my problem. Through IFTTT, I created two recipes: one that dumps out a list of accounts that mention my brand’s Twitter account to a Google Drive spreadsheet (Recipe 293233), and another that dumps a list of usernames whose tweets I’ve faved (Recipe 293235).

Since my brand is mentioned a lot, I created the second one as a more manual workaround in case I wanted to identify a select group of people. (I manually faved tweets thanking us for following them.) Then I let the recipes run until I had a solid list of usernames.

Once you have your list of accounts, the rest is easy. Go to the Follow Tools dropdown in Tweepi and click on By copy/paste. Then simply copy your list of usernames from Drive and paste them into the field. Hit Submit and then safelist your best fans, using any additional filters you need (who’s following you back, location, etc.).

Less manual solution (all mentions):

Twitter hack: IFTTT Recipe - Make a list of the accounts that mention you on Twitter connects twitter to google-drive

More manual solution (faved tweets only):

Twitter hack: IFTTT Recipe - Make a list of usernames through a fave on Twitter connects twitter to google-drive

Which recipe you use depends on what your ideal follow ratio is, and your bandwidth for manually faving certain users’ tweets. I ended up using the latter.

I found my Tweepi/IFTTT Twitter hack to be a very useful tool to scale up a Twitter following while nurturing true fans. I hope you do as well!

New Tweepi: Powerful filters & mobile friendly

We’ve been working day and night for the past few months to rewrite Tweepi with a newer, mobile friendly technology stack. The motivation was two fold, a better Tweepi and making the code base organized and testable for our team to enjoy developing new features. We are finally ready to introduce the new Tweepi beta!

Faster, mobile friendly, and packed with new features.

New powerful filters

You can now build more complex criteria for any Tweepi manage or follow tool:

  • You can define ranges by defining two filters, one greater than and one less than.
  • You can filter by “empty”, “not empty” or “not contain”.
  • Dates are relative. No need to calculate specific dates. Just enter how many days ago.

Quick Actions retired. Default Button introduced.

Due to the latest Twitter updates to their “Automation Rules and Best Practices“, we are forced to disable multiple selections and retire the “Quick Actions” feature. As a result, you’ll notice that the checkboxes have been removed and you can now just select one user at a time.

Tweepi still provides a variety of tools to make your Twitter experience the best out there. More to come…

Please feel free to contact us for help using the latest version of Tweepi.
