    I was with my gf earlier..and she was showing me the twitter page of some fitness girl she follows..
    the account had like half a million followers and she herself is only following like 100...

    how do they start off?

    like do they start with fake followers and build content and hope they get more followers?

    I want to know they best way to create a large social following..
    anyone have any tips?

    the article is spot on with how they make money from having a large following..but still..you need a very large following..

    Well for me I have about 12 twitter accounts with an overall following of 250k and I consider myself small time.

    But considering that 95% of them are real (i.e I paid for 5k) I am very happy with that. Check out some of them big fitness accounts engagement, you can usually tell if an account has over 1 million followers and is only getting 100 retweets and favs then you know its probably paid for 60-80% fake followers.

    My advice to grow your twitter followers organically is get used to firefox IMACROS, they have become my best friend for getting real followers. I run a script every morning that runs through my twitter accounts and favorites and unfollows the follows new accounts. Find a good niche like one direction because they will ALWAYS follow back.

    I started my campaign a year ago from 0 and I am now getting about 5-8k new followers weekly and is growing quicker because the more followers you have means the more retweets which = more audience = more followers.

    Stop thinking about it and just do it.

    Amazing read OP. Build accounts redirect traffic to your own site. Can't get any simpler than that

    I have built a viral site with a friend and I am using it for traffic. Twitter is king, 100% of your followers see your content - unlike facebook where only 1% .
    of your facebook fans see your content .... soon to be 0%

    I took action and created a twitter!

    so im still learning because im very new to twitter but basically I just used one of my alternate emails to make an account and I setup a user name with a random name.

    did this so I can test things out and I also don't want anyone to see my spammy tweets lol..

    but yeah I purchased 2,500 followers from fiver.. think I will do a few more fake followers..

    then when im ready and really get twitter down im going to change the user name to a branded twitter..

    ill keep you posted..
    thanks!!

    Just curious, are you starting to make revenue from your accounts? are you monetizing traffic via adsense OP?

    Great read, this should be a wakeup sign for all those who think Twitter is dead.
