    Dude so many people still use twitter. It helps that artists use twitter to talk shit to other artists, rant, and whatever it is they do. Massive followings then follow them for that. On instagram you get those long as paragraph rants though. So many of my friends who I consider "Cool kids" still use it. Follow the crowd, and market to them ;)

    But OP, wouldn't an escrow service be good for this sort of thing? I never bought accounts so I wouldn't know. I'd imagine they'd still try to recover with old passwords

    What was the account size you was trying to get on Twitter and did you get your money back?

    Paid for an email blast last year on WF (like a noob) and the guy stopped responding shortly after. Crazily the guy is still a member there, no repercussion whatsoever despite numerous reports of him doing this to other people. Luckily it was only $100 so it was not really worth losing sleep over but it is never a good feeling being taken for a ride.

    This was the first time in years that I purchased anything through WF and I don't think I have since.

    One of the most entertaining (and essential) parts of dealing on BHW is the shitlist. It may seem like it is merely popcorn fodder but it is essential for hashing things out.
