More of a vent if I'm honest but just wondered what other peoples views on it are. I started a Twitter account around a year and a half ago in the 'follow back' niche, with the sole purpose of trying to help small accounts gain followers. The first 12 months or so were good but over the past 6 months it's become increasingly difficult to keep it up. I no longer make any money from advertising due to traffic dying down and people favouring larger accounts with insane amount of retweets. The problem is that the owners of these accounts are selling out. They're applying 2-300k in fake followers to boost them up the ranks on advertising websites and using anywhere between 2-900 fake retweets. Which means accounts like mine with 110k don't even get a look in any more. They're basically making money by fooling people. Don't get me wrong there are thousands of accounts out there that haven't sold out and are doing extremely well for themselves, but they are generally well established and have been around a very long time. I have thought about changing niche, but it would be almost like starting from scratch again and would probably take years to re-establish my account. Or should I just go with the crowd and look into doing it myself?
