    Recently, @CHlLDHOODRUINER, a Twitter account with over a million followers, was banned. This account is easily worth somewhere on the upper end of $XX,XXX. Can you imagine losing $50,000+ in assests in one day? Luckily, the owner is smart and has many, many accounts and will be just fine with it gone. With that being said, this was sort of a wake up call to me. I make the majority of my money with SEO and Twitter. I have one giant main account, and that's it. It's a very nice passive income that I've created however as seen here, it can easily be wiped off the face of the Earth. I'm still deciding what I'm going to do but it's always nice to be prepared for any possibility, because you never what may be coming your way...
    Just thought I would share this and maybe help someone :)

    Not really. I must admit that Twitter is not that aggresive when it comes to banning... Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr - they ARE aggresive and they do not like botters.

    I'm bad with this as well, putting all my assets into one particular thing, you never know what will happen. Thanks for this share, I will definitely think of this down the road.

    Not 100% sure but from what I've heard, it had to do with buying/selling followers.

    Buying followers is safe until you will not do HUGE amounts. The thing is to have more real than fake followers :).

    I think it's also a good reminder that you shouldn't rely on just one traffic source or even niche. Unless you have the resources to get back in running in no time.

    True that, but sometimes few resources can finally end their living! ;D
