    I don't have any seasoned accounts to work with. I'd like to use social signals to index my T1 backlinks. I was think about creating some new twitter/G+/Facebooks accounts and filling them with followers and friends that are bots.

    Could these trashy accounts damage my T1 sites? I'm not looking to rank them with these socials, just index them.

    Social signals don't hurt sites in any which way. I am yet to find someone confirming that social signals affect rankings if used in bulk/spammy fashion.

    So don't worry about social signals.

    social signals is increasing because they can deliver SEO benefits; enhance brand awareness; and build trust and credibility.

    You should be safe to do that if you like. Not sure how much you're going to benefit though.

    Nope - they won't trash your sites. In fact they will provide you zero benefit. They are just great for show. They are total bullshit.

    If you want to index back links via social signals why don't you create a youtube video and just pop one of your links there. Nice and natural, virtually risk free and at least you know it will get spidered eventually.

    Of course no. But it will not benefit you in any way though.
