    Hey guys,

    Working with a client my agency and another were hired to consult on their launch. The guys from the other agency added about 1k fake followers to twitter before the launch, which i agreed with, but now day 5 we are still gaining hundreds and hundreds of new fake followers every day. Anyone else ever had this happen? I have no idea where they could be coming from and I would love to stop it ASAP, as we have been getting some real traction and followers.

    Since launch last friday we have gained almost 30k views to their first video release, and Im worried that all these bot followers are going to make the client look suspicious to investors when they go from their seed round to their series A. Any help would be great, thanks!

    you can use online software to un follow people that have egg profiles and other people with under a
    certain number of followers. nothing to worry about

    There are two ways you can achieve what you want:

    1. Make the account private for sometime (protected account), that will stop people from following you, fake and real both, only a request to follow will be sent to you which you can ignore, then after sometime when the storm has passed, you can make it public again.

    2. Go to Manageflitter, from there you can force people to unfollow you, basically it will block those people so their accounts will automatically unfollow you after you have blocked them. It only takes a few seconds when done from there.

    Anyone can do this to any account. Unfortunately Google will have to deal with it somehow because there's nothing you can do. You can't "disavow views" and the whole concept of disavowing links is already pretty controversial, I mean why would you be responsible for what 3rd parties do to you? Unfortunately this is part of life in IM, nothing you can do about it but ignore and hope you're not penalized.
