How do people get 600,000+ followers, without any following?

    There's plenty of them about. They suddenly turn up with a lot of followers, even though their tweets are as dull as dishwater.

    I feel this has to be the best place to ask - how?

    I know they all do the same thing: They tweet facts, funnies, advice etc but starting off an account with that crap just simply wouldn't work as I've seen the tweets - they are basic at best.

    I'll hazard a guess that they buy the followers, but thinking there's a bit more to it than that?

    Here are some examples:
    Code:

    Code:

    Thanks in advance!

    Trying to figure this out as well, I have a twitter account that is similar to theirs, but I only have 30,000 followers

    Nooo, that's the whole point - I've tried doing the same thing with the same tweets - they aren't interesting to enough people.

    So I can only assume they have been bought initially and then the snowball effect has taken place - some retweet... new people follow etc and that carries on over months/years.

    Also, this isn't a thread to sell a service - it's to get some great advice :)

    Yeah folks, i suspect a lot of those followers are bought. Check the follower profiles, ussually a good sign of bought followers are followers with like 2-10 followers themselves and only a few tweets. Its actually fairly easy to spot.

    Actually now that i look at the profiles, i think it might be a mixture of purchasing real crap accounts and some legit looking ones.

    You know those people on Fiverr who sell followers, right? The ones who sell real followers, have the username and passwords of real people. Then they use a script to have them follow one account.

    Don't know if the above accounts did that, but that is one method people use to add followers.

    Only famous personalities & celebrities or brands get followers like that.
    They wither have a name or a site with a follow button which gets lots of visitors.

    I personally know the owner of one of the two accounts that OP mentioned. He has never ever purchased followers. People follow you if you tweet funny stuff. Accounts like these gain followers by exchanging RTs with each other and getting each other followers by promoting. It's like trading 100 followers for 100 or more. I myself have an account with 83k followers and I just tweet funny one-lines (although I don't find them funny, my followers do:p)

    No guys, the followers are not bought. These people (including me) monetize by using mylikes which pays for every click you get on your ad. So there is absolutely no point in buying fake followers :)
