    Greetings everyone,

    I'm negotiating with someone who wants to sell their Twitter account (has 12.6k followers and 800 following). It's sports related.
    It's getting anywhere from 20-60 retweets per tweet that he's posting, and he has shown me MyLikes earnings of up to $35 in a single week, lowest was $10 in a week but even at that minimum I'm thinking it's worth it.

    Thing is, he won't prove to me that the earnings are coming straight from that account. He initially offered to sell for $150, but I turned it down and somehow I'm trying to get him to sell it for $60. He said offer is $80 lol.

    So I guess I'm asking, how much do these kind of twitter accounts usually go for? Is it worth it? Cheers ya'll

    To be honest, if it's earning minimum $10/week, I don't think he would sell it for that low, so maybe your right and those earnings are from multiple accounts.
    i guess you need to decide what the tweets are like, and based on that decide if the followers are likely to be real and interested in the account.

    also you either need proof of earnings, or maybe get him to post a link of yours so you can get a better estimate of earnings.

    you know a twitter account is useless without proof that the followers are real - for example, I have an account with 25k followers just sitting there, it's worthless as most of the followers are fake, but I'm sure I could probably sell it if I wanted to be underhand.

    No - not worth. You can't earn even $10 from MyLikes

    A very very low price for those kind of results O_O

    Just remember that if something is too good to be true, it probably isn't true!

    I've sent you a PM with his account. Regarding asking him to post my link,how exactly should I do that? Like, what link should I ask and how would I track analytics?

    I did ponder this a lot while negotiating. He went through the trouble of posting his earnings but I really am leaning on that it's too good to be true.

    Yeah 20-60 RTs is worth more than $60. Be cautious

    Price is heading up to $80, still don't know if it's worth it.

    If you don't want to tell us the handle for it, you have to use your own judgement. Think about the niche, look at all the followers try to identify if some are fake, look at the age, etc.

    I have PMed you.

    Anyone else that needs the handle, PM me please. Is 1.5 cents a click just about right for Twitter?

    If you have a sports related business and want to use the account to promote it, then get it. If you want to make money selling other people's products, then forget it, it won't make you rich. For your own product...every kind of branding you can get is good, so thats different.

    Those Mylikes earnings seem correct but he would not sell it for only $80. Be cautious and good luck with it.

    I agree with davids535

    How's he selling something that makes $10 a day for $80? He can't wait a week?

    It's like basic Flippa due diligence, how the heck does one sell a website making $500 a day for $5000? The guy can't wait 2 weeks without selling and then keep earning for the rest of their lives?

    the op sent me the name and after few minutes of investigation this uses fake followers and in a circle, I sent the OP the prove that he sells fake followers and use this system :)
    OP you saved 80$ ... case resolved! And I bet everything that he uses sites like cheapjobs etc to earn from mylikes ;)
