    I've been trying to get some traffic from Twitter a lot since I've started my blog about 2 months ago. Right now, I just have a picture on Twitter as a google image of a PC (which relates to my niche). Well, using TweetAttacks is a pretty good program, but I've noticed a lot of my antisocial female friends on twitter gain traffic just from their pictures. I thought this would be a great idea.

    The only problem is a few months ago I've read where some guy got sued for using a picture off Google Images, so I wanted to know if anyone knew of a better way to get a female pic without the chances of getting sued for using it. I'm sure followers would build themselves instead of relying so heavily on TweetAttacks. Getting the 180 followers I have now has been a long process for me. I'm sure I could use them but I know there should be much better attractive people than them I could use.

    Thanks

    If you can't use girl-pictures, use cats. And some cute sentence about 'yourself'.

    Well, I'd like to use girl pictures, but do you know if there's a site or something that has attractive women pictures that are available for use other places without having to get permission (legally speaking)

    Well, this turned out a lot tougher than I thought. Looks like a lot are charging for downloading pictures. I must be searching the wrong things >_<

    I come from a land downunder
    I usually go to a porn thumbnail gallery.

    It doesn't seem to bother anyone in porn that heaps of sites uses each others pics, so they'll hardly be bothered by a pic as a facebook profile.

    i normally grab photos of real people from social networks.. plentyoffish for example. those people will probably never find your twitter or whatever else you're using their photo's on.. it also seems more legit then slutty porn photos.

    plus pornsites pay for their content, so they're more likely to send you a cease and desist letter to take down all of their content.

    If you are concerned about repercussionsof using a ripped pic, the best thing to do is reverse image search it first, tineye (google it, I can't post links yet) is about the best service out there. That's how most content providers will trace an image of theirs used elsewhere. Your image doesn't appear there, as a general rule you're safe.

    You'll find that if you tweak the image in a photo editing program, can be as simple as making it black and white or cropping out background, reverse image searches (and google for that matter) will class it as unique, and you'll be pretty much untraceable. The chances of the content provider stumbling across you randomly are generally extremely low. So by all means used a ripped image, but if you want real peace of mind, if a reverse image search can't pick it up, you're in the clear.

    Go on myspace, search for chicks in Slovakia, they are always sexy as hell. They are never in a million years going to come across your Twitter account.
