I used Fiverr to send out tweet. Feel ripped off!

    I went through every Twitter offer on Fiverr, twice. I was trying to find one that would only Tweet to UK followers. Couldn't find anything close.

    What I did see however was that almost every member up there offering the service were always based outside of the nation they claim to be sending the tweets predominantly too. Mostly in Pakistan or India. One in the Netherlands. It also seemed as if many of the accounts had been created by the same person as they were all riddled with identical spelling errors.

    I picked a service based in the UK. He claimed to post on five different accounts to over 10,000 followers. Funny though how he only sent me the one instance of the tweet.

    Anyway, I got all of 2 clicks from that enterprise. And one of them sent me hate mail.

    I was wondering if anyone could recommend me a better method of sending out Tweets. I have all of about 70 followers to my Twitter account.

    Is it worth buying Twitter followers? Or will that just be some sort of hack.

    Ahaha what was the hate mail?
    I think most are going to be the same.

    Have you just tried paying twitter to advertise?

    99% of the IM related gigs suck donkeyass. There are only a few good nuggets i hear everyone talk about but i couldnt find them.

    Lol feedback don't mean shit for those type of services.

    Lesson learned OP. Don't ever think of going cheap for twitter shoutouts. Especially on fiverr. They suck balls.

    i am thinking of testing this out on fiverr as well but testing multiple providers. i will report back my results. maybe i will compare the results to some BHW networks like nutmegger has as well.

    Yea. I do writing gigs and sell amazon review services on fiverr, but I needed some social network shoutouts to help a friend of mine with her kick starter page and tried getting some twitter and tumblr mentions to help. Wasted $15 on three different people who did the bare minimum, one of whom outright lied to me and still expected me to pay. Fiverrs good for some stuff, but not IM work it seems.

    fiverr is awful. even the feedback comments seem fake, no one ever comments in detail about the service, very generic and vague responses

    I believe the way you are approaching this is wrong. Sure, fiverr is an alternative for this type of thing, however, you have to take a few things in consideration.
    First of all, anyone offering to post a tweet for you, will also be doing the same for many other people.
    The majority of people who look for these type of service simply want it to be tweeted from accounts with hundreds of thousands of followers, without actually caring about their demographics, or if they are even real followers.

    So naturally the sellers will adapt to this demand, and offer what they're currently offering.

    I would highly recommend you give sponsoredtweets.com a try, as it is is definitely better than fiverr.
    Additionally, if you have the time and patience for it, you can simply reach out to popular twitter users with the demographics you are looking for.
    You should be able to find their contact details to email them, or you can just tweet to them and make them an offer.

    Fiverr is definitely not the place do to this, all those offer to tweet to 1 million account for $5 are just plain crap and never yeld any good results, if you want the real stuff you need to get in touch with people that actually can provide that, for example try the BHW marketplace, it might be more but definitely worth it.
