I'm currently in contact with someone about buying a Twitter account with approx 500K followers. He wants me to send him the money first before I get the account info. I have a few questions: How much would a twitter account like this cost? I used one of those free Twitter account auditers and it said that only about 15% of the followers were real. I don't trust these things 100% but it does seem like that'd be a fair # considering his retweets/favorites Is there any better way to see how many real followers there are? What's the best way to go about a trade like this without getting scammed? He says if we use a middleman, it'd have to be one that he trusts When I buy it, how should I secure the account to make sure he can't send Twitter a PM on a different account saying that it was hacked? He's giving me the email and password to the account with the transaction. Are there any black markets for trading social media accounts like this?
