    Hey guys, this is mostly an experiment in building and growing a Twitter account inspired by this method:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/1...utopilot-no-investment-required.825828/page-2

    With a couple little twists here and there.

    First, I'm growing a single "legit" Twitter account. I'm not employing any real black at strategies here and I'm sticking to Twitter TOS as much as possible. No churn and burn here ladies and gents. No scripts or anything to raise red flags. I'm trying to build a legit following to get targeted followers and engagement and hopefully conversions eventually.

    Tools:

    Hootsuite

    Monetization:

    CrakRevenue

    Here's the plan. I'm following anywhere from 200 to 300 accounts a day with a steady but low rate of follow backs. I'm currently at about 140 followers as of this writing.

    I'm downloading a ton of pictures in my niche and tweeting each of them with a custom tailored tweet for each. I'll use no more than 3 hash tags each and I'm encouraging engagement with phrases like "retweet if you love tits" or "follow me if you like this ass" stuff like that.

    Marketing is still in the works, but one successful tests I have done is based on a concept in psychology called reactance. Limit their perceived freedom and choice and they're more likely to do the opposite of what you say. For example "if you like titties DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK. And do not sign up for free if you like your free time!"

    Sounds weird huh? I did some split testing. One tweet with an affiliate link used reactance and another did the usual "check out the finest titties ever FREE SIGN UP JOIN NOW!" Tweet.

    The positive "join now" got about 8 clicks. The reactance tweet GOT 20. I think that's pretty conclusive. I'll run more tests to confirm. There were no conversions, but that's okay. Maximizing conversions is phase two of the marketing.

    For now, I'm working on building the account and providing content people like. This means looking at what gets the most likes, the most retweets and finding more of that. Lots of experimentation here.

    I'm using Hootsuite to schedule 10 posts a day and I want to work that up to about 15 to 20. I'll build up a months worth of posts on my off days, and RT/follow/engage with community on other days. This way I don't have to worry about posting.

    Pro-tip: Twitter gives analytics on when you get the most impressions. Post affiliate links during those peak impression times.

    Here's the stats

    Followers: 140
    Tweets: 95
    Investment: 0
    Earnings: 0
    Impressions: 15,000 WHAT? crazy.

    Fun unexpected things happen when you engage your followers and the community at large. For example, I got a hottie who's looking for more exposure to give me content! I give a shoutout and she gets followers. I get content! And content from her friends! Awesome!

    Grow, engage and grow some more that's the goal. The money will come soon.

    My short term goal: 500 followers and first conversion.

    Thanks guys, and I appreciate any suggestions.

    Nice twist, currently in IG kinda wanna start twitter with it to now.

    Going to try reactance for engagement now.

    Are you going to be using any other sort of auomation besides HootSuite?

    Good idea to just get a months work done btw so you don't have to do that everyday.

    I'm thinking besides Hootsuite, I'm not gonna risk it. I considered Unfollowers once I get some money coming in.

    And hell, if you want you could just knock shit out for a week and have yourself a schedule a few months ahead.

    I want to engage as much as possible and really get into it as much as I can to build it up. Some people get proxies and have a zillion accounts but I bet a single account could do well, possibly even 2 more accounts to retweet and back up the main one. I think 3 is the max number of accounts per IP.

    I have much to learn but it will get there. I'm getting more followers every day. Oh, and manual following is much easier on mobile. I can follow a couple hundred in about 10 mins.

    Does Twitter ever limit you like Instagram does with following?

    Yes. Altogether, you cannot follow more than 5000 people, and I think there is a limit of 1000 per day. Follower churn is against the rules so unfollowing has to be done cautiously as well.

    I'll look into it. It would be nice if its a better system. I don't mind scheduling posts out a month in advance though. That doesn't bother me.

    I guess while I'm responding I'll update.

    Still building mostly, engaging, retweeting, following. This is the no money hard part.

    Are you posting link with each tweet?
    Each time are you changing # tag?
    Do you have bio with link?
    How do you target followers? Ie by keywords / by high rated account followers

    I have just one twitter account. I'm not going to churn and burn the shit out of accounts with proxies. I'm building a single "legitimate" niche account with plenty of engagement and user interaction. I think this is a longer term strategie than trying to game Twitter, which frankly, I don't have the technical expertise to do anyhow.

    I'm currently building up the account, and I have done a few link tweets for split testing purposes. I have not yet started full speed daily link tweeting. However, when I do it will consist of about 2 or 3 of my total 15 posts a day.

    I use niche relevant hashtags, while sprinkling in others that relate to the image. I only do two hashtags per tweet. More than that and user engagement will go to shit. I don't want that.

    I have the bio filled out, but I have chosen not to add a link to any offers. From what I understand this closely skirts TOS violation. So I don't risk it.

    relevant hashtags, and I follow the followers of high profile accounts in my niche. this has been a slow going process, but growing.

    Update 8/12/16:

    Some new developments. I started using a bulk image downloader for my content and that made life so much easier. Fuck, I was wasting time.

    I still follow about 300 accounts a day. This is so much faster on mobile than doing it on desktop, so I follow on my mobile and use my desktop to unfollow. Well really, I use the desktop to check which ones are following me and I unfollow those that are not. I'm unsure of the policies here regarding unfollowing, but I'm trying to stay off radar so that I don't get dinged for follower churn. This is about as blackhat as it gets for this project.

    I'm still doing some marketing research for links so I'm ready to go when the time comes. I'll share more of that in a later update.

    The stats blow my mind. I have done halfway decent. I still have a ways to go. One day at a time folks. That's what it takes. Hopefully I'll be able to post my first conversion soon.

    I respect your journey, hustle, dedication, etc.. but people here aren't being frank with you. The truth of the matter is that while semi-noble what you're doing (trying to not violate the TOS, using only one account, etc) it's very seldomly profitable. There's just not much of a chance that you're gonna build this one specific account into a legit passive income. Truly next to no way. And what if for whatever reason Twitter takes that account? Then everything for nothing. You MIGHT see a couple dollars here or there, but nothing much. That's honestly just my opinion and the honest truth about IM in Twitter these days.

    I'm absolutely open to this constructive criticism. My primary goal with following TOS was specifically not to get banned. I wouldn't mind clawing my eyes out scheduling hundreds of posts for several accounts of I knew I could get away with it. However, I don't know exactly how to do that. To be honest, my method is directly attributable to that which I do not know. I certainly wouldn't think of myself as pretentious enough to assume I was taking a "higher path" here. After all I am uploading porn, right? Lol but you're right, Twitter gets a wild hare and I'm done.

    If I understand correctly, Twitter allows a Max of 3 accounts per IP. I don't know how effective having proxies would be, how much it would cost me or how I would reliably maintain more than just a couple accounts consistently. For example, if I open say 50 accounts with different IPs, would I get dinged if they notice that theyre all maintained from a single IP? Here's another concern, how would I do all the tweeting I needed for so many accounts in a reasonable amount of time? If I had enough knowledge, I imagine I could scrape all the images I needed, and have a program auto post each picture say, 15 times a day for each account that automatically puts two hashtags with each post and a small comment. Then put two lot three aff links mixed in per day.

    I'm sure it could be done that way in such a way Twitter doesn't pick up on it. In the very least, this has taught me s ton about Twitter and how to use it as well as different apps to support it.

    I'm open to any suggestions or resources available.

    Don,t want to piss on your chips but...

    I have around 15 adult Twitters with close to 1/2 Million real followers combined and struggle to make that amount daily.

    I will need many multiple twitter accounts with a lot of followers to do that amount daily

    And it will take a couple of years to get a big real following back from unfollow/follow method

    You're right, and this has been pointed out to me. That's alright though, I have learned a lot about Twitter. Maybe this will be useful to me in the future.
