    I cannot figure this out.. how exactly does twitter work?
    Are there actually human on twitter? So everybody has a business profile. Everybody there is trying to make money (using twitter).

    How do you even find true followers?
    So you make money from people who try to make money?

    how does it work? I am asking dumber and dumber questions...

    Real people use twitter. IMers figured, hey if real people use it, I can make money by promoting offers to them.

    What else do you want to know?

    Real people follow people that are interesting or provide value to them. That's how you would get real followers.

    Then if you know that they all like iPads or something, send them links to iPad CPA offers or to Amazon's iPad page.

    when i go to twitter, i am blind to all the links. if i ignore others links, why would people read my links?
    it seems that all people do is to go there and throw their links up and down?

    what i am wondering is other than natural followers, I do not see how following others will work. you end up following spammers and perhaps spammers follow you back too. how is that going to help?

    I tried manually following real people, but its almost impossible to even find real people to follow.. i had to go in each individual profile to actually judge if they are spammers..

    Not everybody is on twitter to make money... #justsayinnn. It's a microblogging website.

    Nope. I have over 250,000+ real followers. I'm pretty much at a point where I don't have to follow anyone, because I get around 400-500 real followers a day no matter what I say or do but I still follow 1000 a day by picking someone random and adding their follower list to a bot. I pretty much tweet about sports, music, pop culture, etc... Most of my follows come from people who retweet my stuff. I engage with every person who sends me a message. I get a lot of followers from trending topics, because I'm considered funny and entertaining.

    I'm a rare breed though, because I'm not out to make money. Just looking to indulge in intelligent conversations and tell bad jokes with others. My advice would be to use twitter search to find people who have the same interests as you and go from there.

    If you're looking to make money on twitter it works the same way, because who would you rather buy from, a person you don't talk to, or someone you do talk to?

    It's a micro blogging site. You can use it to promote your business page or product or service or what have yous. There are many twitter users, I guess that's why businesses find it fitting to join as well, to increase their visibility.
