    A few months ago I started a new twitter account with real, quality content and I used tweetadder to follow 30 or so people a day who were followers of a very similar (but much more popular) feed. I would only get a few new followers a day using this method but I did it for a while until I got to 300 followers (while doing the follow, wait one week unfollow routine).

    A few weeks ago I bought a Fiverr gig adding 500 twitter followers to my account. I knew they would all be fake but I wanted to see if people were more likely to follow an account with 800 followers than 300. After a few weeks I'm comfortable declaring the answer as 100% yes.

    Since I've done this my slow days have still been 12-15 followers (double my previous rate) and I'm well over 1,000. From now on I'll give all my new twitter accounts a bump like this.

    I know for a lot of you guys you do the mass follow by the 100s or 1000s but if you have an account you're trying to build and protect, this may give you a boost.

    Do you get 500 in one day? Cause don't Twitter flag this sort of activity?

    Sounds good tho man, are you seeing much traffic from your tweets yet?

    The 500 did come in one day. I was a little concerned about that but that's why I used it on a newer account so I wouldn't lose too much if it got burned. It took the 500 fine and I was off and running again the next day. I only follow 40-50 a day which I know is chump change to a lot of people here but I'm trying to keep these 100% safe.

    P.S., I didn't post the specific fiverr gig I used beacuse I didn't want people to wonder if it was me pushing my own gig but the gig now looks like it's 200 followers instead of 500.

    I've done the same thing but with a much larger account that had 15K followers. I used a fiverr gig that added another 16K followers and now using TweetAdder3, that one account is gaining an average of 350 followers a day -- day in and day out when it was only getting about half that number before.

    I've done this with a few twitter accounts and it works 100%. Once you have 1000 followers everyone you follow will follow you back. I use this to get an account moving, once I have some followers I can build it from there organically myself. Never had any slaps off twitter and I have loaded up 5000 followers in a day ! You can expect most of your new followers to unfollow you pretty quickly so use the numbers while you have them. I've bought off fiverr look around for the highest rankers, and you want someone who can get you followers without having your twitter log in details

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm getting ready to start up a new twitter account that I will be quite a bit more aggressive with after a month or two.
