    I wonder what bst is going to be shutdown now. The phones alone prob cost around 40k. Assuming you could get them for $100 which is cheap.

    LOL @ Wang Dong C'mon now haha

    Also, Yes I'm judging this by first world, or rather, western standards but that's a lot of work for $4,403/month keeping in mind that there are three of them, so around $1,467 each monthly.

    But damn, just think of the logistics behind managing 300,000 sim cards.

    clicking on ads in such a big way attracts the attention of financial authorities, how can clicking likes and retweets be the same is what i mean

    1-300000 sim means 300000 email means 30000 subscribers could be sold as any group atleast 10 times.
    2- at least 600000 twtr acc, sufficient enough to give blue mark to any profile( appx 2000 usd for each such acc)
    3- 300000 varified gmail/ol/yahoo mail to spam a hell of cb product.
    4- 300000 ig or fb acc for click farm obviously.

    And a fake call centre.
