Hello Warriors,

I came across a website: howdoigetfollowers.net which offers different packages to buy Twitter followers.
Has anyone tried it out? Is it a good option to buy Twitter followers?

    Hello Vikram,

    yes this site works! I tried it and it's really good for social proof. Meaning people will think you are a big deal if you have a lot of followers and they will follow you.

    Who wants to follow someone or buy products from someone who only has like 10 followers himself right?

    Services like these are great for making your Social Media accounts look more popular but don't expect them to be real.

    It may make your account look slightly more popular, but they will not bring you any value outside of that.

    Actually, of all the social media platforms, Twitter is the easiest to get followers on. I've doubled and tripled follower count just by @ing people with a 'thanks for the follow!' or simple hello before.

    Not to mention, anyone who is on Twitter a lot...hopefully they don't check out your followers list and see they're all bots. I mean, how trustworthy are you gonna look then?

    Something to think about.

    If you interact and build relationships which is what Twitter is for in Business then you won't need to buy fake followers.
    Fake followers on any platform are just for "looks" and kind of pointless in my opinion....

    I think it is not a good option because relevancy all that matter today. fake accounts will not give you any response, just only increase your number of followers.

    Don't buy these followers if you're looking into monetizing from your followers, if they're bought people will catch on. Don't think about using such service if you don't know how to use that, oragnic growth would be of best to your account.

    Ask yourself this question.

    Is this account you're building for churn and burn, if yes. Get it

    Is this account for long-term monetization, if yes. Stay away from it.

  • Hi,

    There's a lot of divided opinion in this thread but my choice would be yes. Having fake twitter followers have its perks too. For one, it could make your page look "popular." People seem to follow the crowd when they see an account that has a good amount of followers, so it can be a good way for marketing.

    However, there are some considerations too that you need to put in mind in order to "appear credible":
    1. Make sure that you have already posted a lot of helpful tweets before buying some followers. Of course, it will look suspicious at first glance if you only have less than 20tweets and you already have more than a hundred followers. This one is pretty basic knowledge.

    2. Next, be as active as you can in Twitter. Go for mentions, favorites, answering some questions etc. But don't overdo it. Good content is still a priority. I once unfollowed a lot of accounts in Twitter mainly because they did a lot of mentions more than good content, irrelevant stuffs clouding your feeds.

    3. If you are going for a follow for follow, don't overdo it either. Spamming irrelevant content on your followers is also a sure way to get unfollowed.

    4. Use basic knowledge. If you're going to purchase follower bundles, make sure that it is proportional to your number of tweets, or content that you currently have.

    Hope you find this informative!

      Thanks for your perspective and showing me the pros and cons of buying twitter followers.

      Marketing has a direct connection with popularity. Hence if I have good number of twitter followers then I would look popular and this would boost my marketing objectives and hopefully results!!

      Can you help me to know if there are any other options like https://howdoigetfollowers.net/?

    No it is never a good idea. Followers you buy from most of these types of vendors are not only fake but often objectionable. Frequently loaded with e-whoring and porno accounts that can make you look like some kind of pervert or weirdo. Then when you look at what they are posting in your timeline you often see that many of them have the same posts since they are all bots anyway. Many people who are considering following you will first look at your followers to see what kind of community you are involved with. So they will see these things and many will be scared off by it.

    Altogether these things make your account look spammy and can severely damage your reputation on Twitter and elsewhere. It's not that hard to build a legitimate following on Twitter, so why bother paying money for worthless bot followers that just make you look bad?

    If you want to boost your following, pay $9 a month for a crowdfire account and you can manually follow and unfollow users up to a reasonable limit per day. If you want details on how to do that effectively without tripping twitters anti-spamming measures, just PM me and I can give you the straight dope.

    In a word: NO! It's not even worth your time and it will decrease your engagement over time because they are not real followers.

    There is no substitute for hard work, just keep plugging away and build your Twitter page either through ads or organically.

      I agree with you. There cannot be a substitute for hard work.

    I would like to tell you 4 reasons why buying Twitter follower will not be good for you; 1) if you buy Twitter followers you will not get people who are interested with you; 2) you end up spamming your followers; 3) if your followers see that you get more than 30000 followers in a short period of time, you may lose your integrity and reputation; 4) it is easy to find out the names of people who are being followed by fake accounts.

      Thanks for your advice. I do intend to have targetted followers to my account. So the points you mentioned indeed make sense.

    I have never tried to buy Twitter followers, because I think it is not good idea! Why you need to buy followers if you can have them by your own for free. Just have a patience and follow the simple rules and you will have a big list of your Twitters followers.

    If you have huge amount of money to buy twitter followers, then do it.

    It's a good idea. And the website is very reliable.

    I have a friend who used it and he said it's definitely worth it.

    It's advisable to buy followers especially for those who can afford it.

    It could boost your page if people see that you have a huge number of followers.

    However it's still best if you would gain true followers without buying them.

    In simple word paid followers & paid likes are both worthless. Never go with paid way always try with organic way.

    In my honest opinion, I would say to buying fake twitter followers.

    It's still best if you have real followers.

    After getting mixed opinion (though most opinions were against going in for buying followers; and the reason is absolutely right!), I tried to experiment myself with the services of howdoigetfollowers.net and observe the results.

    I started off with buying a small number of followers on Twitter. At the same time, I used the organic technique of building up my Twitter followers.

    I found that having more number of followers than following, did help me to increase my followers count. And ever since, I continue to get followers though I no longer buy any followers.

    So my observation is, you can start off by buying small number of followers only once in a rational way and keep using the organic techniques. It motivates more and more people to follow you and your followers count keep growing naturally.

  • It's really not that hard to get real likes and followers. All you need to do is be active on Twitter, that means

    - tweeting good content,
    - follow accounts you think would help you,
    - interact with people
    - be on the look out on what's trending.

    It's takes a bit of work, yeah. But it would only take you around 30 minutes a day, tops.

    depending on what you're buying for? if you're buying to show you have followers then sure go for it but if you buy to have them engage to you then you shouldn't. Not to mention, they'll unfollow you after a certain amount of time

    It's not good to buy twitter followers but it is advisable. It's one way to make your account gather an actual followers. If they saw you have many followers then they might get curious and follow you.

    I don't personally know their site but generally, if you get followers that will not drop, they will provide value to your account in terms of popularity.

    It's good if you want to sell Ads on your account or only look popular but don't expect any traffic or sale from them.

    I have two accounts, one that I started in 2009 when it was easy to pickup followers and one that I started last October. The old account has 800 legit followers and the new one 200 followers. I had abandoned the old account and just started sharing on it lately again and now it's picking up 5 or 10 every day. The account with only 200 on it is very hard to get followers on, so there's your answer. :-)

    Hope this helps you out!

    Peace,

      Your case only establishes the fact that we cannot overrule the need for popularity to increase Twitter followers. More the Twitter followers more is your credibility and thus more people are likely to follow you.

      So I don't think its a bad idea to buy small number of followers to start with. But it should also be followed by your own engagement with Twitter. Then you keep getting followers
