Great share as I have been tempted to try this out. Seems a little pricey and unsuccessful.
I'll update this thread in 24 hrs with similar info
I've tried it as well with not very good results.
That's too bad. I was hopeful.
In this Twitter case study, the user paid 30 cents/follower, got 1300 real, targeted followers in two months.
Guess it was cherry-picked.
Here's the mistake everyone likes to make... this is not a third party review.. this was Twitter pushing their own stats... of course it was outlandish
Great info, not so great stats. I hope your next update will have better results
Update.. I had to stop the campaign... I'm at $85 for the day and picked up 16 followers. Its not viable for me to keep testing.
damn that is not cheap. just use follow first and tweetadder and you can get unlimited targeted followers, or i can do it for you:rock:
I heard people were getting banned with Tweetadder?
This is my interpretation of what's going on:
Twitter (sometime in November from the data points I've gathered) tuned its definition of "rapid following churn" (basically following a lot of people, and (usually) unfollowing a portion of them.
Multiple people have reported getting suspended (but re-enabled after manually submitting appeal) for following 300+ accounts/day in November, when before they did that (and more!) just fine.
Many of these people were completely white hat (it's actually semi-complex to spam on TweetAdder. Possible, but not its strength.)
So what has gotten people banned is their following velocity, not necessarily TweetAdder. It's just that TweetAdder has awesome, targeted, set-it-and-forget-it follow-unfollow tools, so it's very likely that somebody who wants to automate following would want to use TweetAdder.
Technically TweetAdder emulates any "web agent" you want (Safari, Firefox on any OS, Chrome on any OS, IE...), so it's hard to fingerprint it and ban it (aside from behavior).
So yeah... any good tool gives us enough rope to hang ourselves. But I still fully endorse TweetAdder, depending on your method. (I'm not an affiliate/don't work for them. And it's not the only Twitter tool I use. But it's great for targeting.)
All I know is, I've been trying to figure out how to get decent numbers, short of sacrificing a farm animal and after this experiment, I think the sheep should be scared.
Nice post, I am going to give it a run also.
Way too much for followers. Liek someone mentioned just use tweet adder...I leave on running 24/7 and my followers shoot through the roof daily...just have to have the correct settings so you fly under the radar. Personallly I am not sold on Twitter as an advertising platform.
That's two votes fort tweet adder... How much is it
It depends on how many accounts you want it to manage:
$55 (for just one) $74 (5 profiles) $110 (10 profiles) $188 (unlimited)
If you're managing a large number of accounts, add-in cost of either buying proxies, or finding/scraping free ones from somewhere. (Though your use-case sounds relatively white hat, and I imagine you don't want tons of twitter accounts/or proxy servers.)
Thank you, yes have not ventured into black hat stuff yet, still learning. Besides this test was with an account I don't want to harm at all.
0 if you happen to be able to set the cracked version
Any people running more than 70+ accounts with TweetAdder without it crashing like a f* Beta? Can't believe it's so unstable.
