    Check it out for yourself, I've lost around 100 followers on a 15k+ follower account of what I thought were all real followers. After seeing that, I then went and checked my other accounts and lost 10's of thousands..


    I didn't buy from the same people so I know it isn't just that, and it isn't just coincidence that it all happened at the same time.


    So I guess my warning is, if you have fake accounts, go log in them and tweet or something... because it's not looking good today.


    Sorry for the spam post, just thought I'd let you all know what I've seen and give you a heads up... I monitor Twitter a lot and this looks like a mass cleanup.

    Yeah I know they do this on occasion so I'm just trying to save some accounts for people. Hopefully they can log in them and look real before Twitter nukes them.

    Just a lesson for all of us, we need to make the accounts look as real as we can.

    The way I've saved my personal accounts is by automatically retweeting with them on a regular basis. This not only helps my main accounts, but preserves the real aspect of the fake accounts.

    It isn't about me, or him.. It's about most every large Twitter account you see. I believe in having fake followers, but only in the beginning. It is necessary and proven that the more followers you have, the better the chance of someone else following you is... Trolling this post was pointless, and unless you have any experience in the field, or have anything to say about the subject, I think it's best that you don't include your thoughts on any post in BHW... This is a forum to help people, not make someone feel worse about themselves.

    With that said, the trend is still true, I've seen a lot of followers drop off of multiple accounts.

    Why are you even here? Look, Fake followers enable you to get real follows. If you don't understand that simple concept then why are you even on this forum? Its called marketing genius
