    Anybody else notice this pattern. You buy a cheap gig for 10,000 or more followers for $5 bucks and then in a week they all start unfollowing you? This is probably why you see many sellers with tons of buyers + have positive ratings, because you already left them positive feedback.

    Another question does anyone know any sellers where the followers don't disappear? (I don't care that they are fake followers)

    That's because they follow with bots, and then the bots usually get detected in like blocks of 500, so they disappear 500 at a time. They weren't real in the first place, so they don't technically "unfollow" rather get the boot by Twitter.

    Still seems a little iffy to me. Sellers should know not to follow 100s of people with the same accounts. They should set a limit and never touch those same accounts again to make sure they don't get suspended.

    i'm one of thoose sellers :) and always trying to find methods of keeping thoose accounts live as much as possible... if you just do as you said with the limit... the accounts usually get sniped after a week or so... best approach is to follow 100+ people with each account daily and 10-20 of the users followed are actually the people that bought the gig

    Actually the problem I have now is I have run through all of the sellers in fiverr and I order one of the 10k followers in 24 hours......they then ask me to cancel the gig due to: We have used up all of our resources...

    I don't necessary 100% believe this. I mean there are accounts on Twitter with people squatting on names that haven't been touched in like 2-3 years without them being deleted or suspended.

    I'm probably just mad that I had someone who was going to take my account that has over 220,000+ real/niche followers that I got on my own through hardwork to 1,000,000 with all his fake accounts for cheap, but as soon as he started doing it all of his accounts got suspended.

    At least he refunded me though...

    So, you want people to create 10,000 twitter accounts everytime for a gig which is going to pay them $3.92 . Even captchas cost much more than that.

    P.S. - I am not a fiverr seller but i think your expectations are just ........!!!!?????

    I hear you, but from my point of view it's not the service that they advertised and that I paid for. Their are no disclaimers in their gigs that say that the followers have a chance to be suspended from Twitter. If they don't come through with the service or offer to refund my measly $5 then they get reported and I get my $$$ back anyway.

    I'm not saying all are bad sellers, I'm just saying I wasn't getting what I paid for.

    You can always change the feedback if you are unhappy with the service later.

    Oh I didn't you could change it, but it appears most of those feedback ratings are skewed anyway by the same people reviewing over and over like 50 times in a row.

    think it will be down to proxies and ip address' and activity on those accounts coming into consideration though...

    Same goes for most Pinterest gigs. Since making accounts is easy at the moment, people make hundreds of accounts. Just the other day a guy was offering 350 followers + 350 repins + 350 likes. I bought the gig. EVERYTHING arrived at the exact same moment

    Even though I bought this gig just to see if those are bots (never expected real results), you should be very careful about these types of gigs. Just check their delivery time. If it's a couple of days, it could be legit. If the followers are arriving slowly, it could be legit. Otherwise, if you see a express gig or something promising to give you thousands of followers in 2 days - run away from it.
