If I change this twitterfollowers.mobi to a website, will I get a higher bid?

    Hi
    I listed a domain, twitterfollowers.mobi on flippa. Now I am thinking of putting a website in the domain that sells twitter followers.

    If I do that, will I get a bigger bid??

    Most likely yes. People love developed domains and without a website you'll have a hard time getting more than the reg fee for that domain.

    Mobi domains are expensive to renew. Having Twitter in the domain name risks the new owner getting a C&D from Twitter. Chalk the domain up to a learning lesson. I don't think even with a website on it that you'll get your domain fee plus $30 flippa minimum listing fees back. However there are some really ignorant people on Flippa so maybe you'll get lucky.

    highest (and the only) bid is $1k

    Having twitter in domain name and then offering a service (followers) which is shady according to Twitter TOS means possible problems.
