    Hi,

    When creating accounts on Twitter and Google Plus, is it better to use a descriptive username or a personal (fake) name?

    For example, for weight loss niche, is it better to use
    1.
    Username: The Best Weight Loss Methods
    Bios: Follow us for the top 10 weight loss methods in 2014

    2.
    Username: John Lincoln
    Bios: Personal trainer specialized in weight loss exercises, love reading and meditation

    Which one is more likely to be followed back when I use the follow/follow back strategy?

    I'd say you go for the second. Stuffing you keyword everywhere might not be a good idea in the long run, for starters they might start banning faster, like facebook does for not being a real person. Second people might not want to follow an account with all those keywords in the name because it looks like a bot and people are getting tired of spam. Id' say make them look as legit as you can.
