    Hello people,

    I always wonder how there are so many twitter accounts with 10k, 50k, 100k followers and have active re tweeters and stuff. I even see stupid accounts that have that much. What are they using bots? I'm very new to twitter followers but not new to getting followers on ig. I have about 60k followers on one ig account.

    Reply's appreciated thanks!

    It depends, a lot of these accounts have bigger ones backing them (through retweets, shoutouts, etc). So usually you'll see one person with a really popular Twitter page create more and force them into popularity. There's a lot of Twitter pages with fake followers though, those are absolutely useless. You'll have to put in work and have some luck to get a Twitter page popular.

    There is a really popular saying in the startup and small business community called, "fake it until you make it" which is the main reason people buy fake followers. However, fake likes/comments/favorites/retweets/etc really do help your promotions (and it looks more legit if you've got more followers than the amount of people liking your posts). If you're just trying to promote yourself I'd advise against getting fake followers unless you're padding retweets and favorites as well.

    No problem. My Vine bots are private (I haven't given them out or sold them to anyone), unfortunately. The avatar is mainly just to mess with people.

    Sorry man =[

    I'm not interested in selling, though. I'll humor your actual question and provide an answer:

    The whole system consists of ~18 Python scripts - each one contains class wrappers, thread handlers, dedicated daemons, and database connection handlers. It runs on one of my servers automatically and do everything from creating accounts to mass-reporting users/vines.

    From my experience, fake followers and retweets don't result in $$$. Take your time and build a real following.

    The reason I like fake followers is because you won't get hit so hard with aggressive following + it raises the limit of people you can follow per day.

    One easy way out there you can differentiate which one is fake account and which one is real:

    The twitter account having a profile picture with the twitter logo (the EGG), is mostly the fake one in most of the cases.

    The account with having some different image than the twitter logo the EGG, is a real account in any case.

    Fake likes and followers can help mainly when you are just starting. This is to get other people's trust and confidence. When you are getting enough real likes, work harder to keep them and get more leads.

    Very few major account owners are using bots anymore. Not worth the risk, and there are plenty of safer tools that suffice in managing accounts. And no bots really build accounts in a way that develops branding with followers. Following more than 1k people on an account isn't good.

    If you want fakes to start, you're much better off asking large account owners if they have some smaller ones for sale. For $100 or less they will have accounts usually with under 20k followers, that really never grew or recently died. The accounts are older and the followers won't drop too much, that's the safest bet. Just about every time you buy fake followers they will be ghosts or drop like crazy.

    Most of them using exchange services, or just buying fans.
    Also some of the accounts probably went viral...
