You can buy Twitter followers — a penny apiece.

It's easy!

"There’s a tremendous cachet associated with having a large number" of followers, and real readers might become interested in you because you've got all those followers. But the cachet depends on people believing that the followers are real people who chose to follow you.

There's a tool, Fake Follower Check, that purports to be able to tell what percentage of a Twitter-writer's followers are fake. It says:
... 71 percent of Lady Gaga’s nearly 29 million followers are “fake” or “inactive.” So are 70 percent of President Obama’s nearly 19 million followers.

But Twitter is starting to clamp down. In April, it filed suit in federal court in San Francisco against five spammers, including those who create fake Twitter followers....
A court is supposed to save them?

Twitter followers as social media currency has long been debased. No one takes the numbers seriously anymore (if they ever did). It remains what it is because there are few easy metrics in online presence measurement. It's a joke, and any serious marketing expert knows it, even as they talk up getting you more followers.

It's an easy way to justify marketing bills, but as an actual marketing tool, Twitter is damned near useless. Too many fake followers, too much spam, very few tweets that aren't generated automatically. As a community tool, it's great. For marketing ... not so much.

You mean they didn't get there on their own?

Wow, haha, how embarrassing.

He did not build his followers, fakers did.

Can't Twitter automatically delete inactive followers? Set a three months, one year, two year time limit for inactivities?

When I got onto Twitter a year or two ago - I kind of messed up and blocked all followers. Everyone told me this was a mistake.....and now, it's like.....too late for me. I have no followers.

At last I find a solution....Thanks Ann :-)

Turn one follower into ten. A phenomena that has been created through the Twitter platform is based on word of mouth advertising. The concept that is used with this is based on the ability to spread the news about your business or a specific concept to a group of people.

Buying twitter followers is one of the best decisions that you will ever make. This is because buying the followers comes with a lot of benefits. When you buy twitter followers, you become an authority in the social media circles and everyone will be interested in following you. Although, buying twitter followers is such a good act, you should not buy just any followers: you should buy real twitter followers only. Real followers are followers who will see, reply, and even retweet your posts. To get the followers all you need to do is to find a reputable site and make your purchase.
