    So, when you buy thousands of followers on twitter, those 'fake' accounts all have profile images. Where do they come from? I assume they are scraped but how (software? keyword?) I have a google image scraper but can't really find a good set of keywords for getting twitter style images for profiles.

    Didn't have any luck with that particular process but I'll keep checking. Thanks.
