    Starterd today and got 400 followers. I was looking all these 400 people profiles and realized that 98% have 1000-12 000 followers. Real/normal account would have 10-50max. followers. So I quess its all JUNK.

    I get 1,200-1,600 leads from Twitter on an average day. This number has been going up by 100-200 per day. You're just not targeting people in the right places.

    yeah probably the mistake is that I was browsing people by word "poker" which is not good one. Must try other words and will let know then. How many followers do you followers have?

    I use Tweetlater to automate tweets every 35 minutes, over 10 accounts. Don't feel like adding up all the followers but it's somewhere in the 4-5k range. You can avoid getting reported for spamming on there simply by using RT @randomnamehere yourmessagehere yoururlhere, most people think you're just replying to someone elses question and won't report. 0 bans after 1,820 tweets total now.

    If something doesn't work for you, don't consider it "broken", figure out what you need to change to optimize it. For example find a way to get people to follow you. :banana:

    Create more accounts and build more followers... I've got over 23k followers at the moment, though I know probably half if not more are other marketers...
