    Now keep in mind, it USED to be great when people had to give seeds to get instant followers. It also had the option to follow people in a specific part of the globe and niche.

    The price of seeds are quite frankly ridiculous considering your better off following people in your niche for free.

    I haven't been on the site in about two years and decided to log in a week ago and was pretty disappointed. I know twitter cracked down on them which caused the change but i wanted to know if you guys at blackhatworld feel the same.

    Agree completely. I struck a deal with them a while back (maybe a year ago) that resulted in a large number of free seeds (in the tens of thousands). They slowly got used up and within a month the followers were mostly gone. Now it's a joke.

    The fault is in the people who abuse it! They're the ones who ruined t.
    I mean ffs if everyone gets on twiends to get followers but refuses to follow/lies about their location and doesn't follow back, what do you expect?

    There is no diversity (i.e. only Twitter and Instagram). Hence, they are no longer useful.

    Its partcially that but bots are abused too. its the fact that the price of "seeds" is ridiculous evn back in the day. Most of the followers are Malaysian spam bots that have pics of models. it looked really bad to the clients back then.

    I agree. I remember when it had facebook in there and getting points was a breeze.

    I have also found that Twiends is no longer a viable option for gaining followers who actually provide my blog with real value, I can get 250 Twitter followers on Twiends and waste $50USD on 'seeds' and still not get any leads/sales...

    I recently learned of a social media tool that is similar to Twiends but is pretty new and seems to have a lot more services available for example they also have Google+ & LinkedIn. The site is called Keeko and i have found that although im not getting the masssive number of followers like i did from Twiends, i am finding that i get way better quality followers who interact with me - apparently they are really strict on users so unless your a real person who is going to use it properly i wouldnt bother with it.

    This is just a replacement for Twiends and I will be using keeko until they lose their quality or turn into a bot farm...

    hope this helped the OP :)

    Keeko must be doing something wrong. It fell from 20,000 to 479,420 on Alexa. Sites on SEO niche usually dont go that low unless they have 1 unique/day.

    I wouldn't trust the opinions of the posters in this thread unless they have been verified personally.

    Many people still use this program successfully and a program of this nature just doesn't randomly just "die" like this.

    They are obviously biased and are trying to throw people off when the program obviously still works greatly.

    yaaa I don't think so. lol twiends is terrible and costs too much. The nature of these sharing site states people are only following for a follow then their fake Facebook they made to get points gets banned and you loose the followers day by day.
