    Hi all, I wanted to ask those with experience in the space how much risk there is in buying fake followers. Is there a certain number (or ratio of fake to real) that is generally considered safe? Has anyone here had accounts suspended/banned for this, and if so how many fakes did you add? Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    i have bought fake followers. My minimum was 1,000. My maximum was 10,000. Each time, it was on new accounts with 0 real follower. My accounts are still alive (even if I think now that 10,000 followers on a new account was quite risky).

    If you are worry, just use the followback system.

    I had the same experience as the above user. I bought 1k followers from (Shameless plug for them here because they delivered all my followers in 6 hours) http://www.SKingdom.com 6 months ago and none of my 40+ accounts have been banned.

    Natty, I see you plug SKingdom.com a few times on here. Any chance you can ask them to get my order going, I ordered yesterday and no response yet from them.

    I've bought fake followers, like back in 09 or something... I don't see a purpose in it now though.

    i know 4 accounts with >3m Followers and i think twitter know them too

    the account with 5 mil flwrs bought probably 4 mil or more ( in total be bought more, i.e. he lost in one day 500k)

    but i know 3 suspended accounts from 2 bhw members -_- the flwr #s: between 1-1,5 mil

    both are more and less active in the fakefollower niche

    The only risk is doing it when you first make an account

    There is no risk buying fake followers, when you open a fresh account I would suggest you to start with 1k followers do some followback and than buy again.

    Your basically throwing your money away. These will not engage, buy or click your stuff. I never understood people who bought fake followers

    QFT. And it's really easy to tell who has fake followers when their tweets have zero engagements.

    You'd be better off utilizing an app like Crowdfire or one here on the forum to mass follow and unfollow non-followers. If you keep posting quality content, your engagements will be genuine and it'll be better off in the long run.

    Twitter is in serious business problems nowadays, they're going to still letting fake users to keep their stats growing and show the investors that they are getting more people in. Don't worry for now!
