    I don't see the point in having fake likes/followers what are they used for and how do they benefit you?

    The only purpose they serve is to make your account appear more popular, and thus make the user feel like they should follow. Basically just to make your account more followable.

    It is to look popular and then attract real likes and followers.

    Which are you more likely to follow, a page with 5 likes/followers or a page with 5000 likes/followers?

    all they are good for is fluff! they make the account look more active and attractive to real followers, making them more likely to follow you, this can be a good thing at first but once you gain lots of real followers it's best to lay off getting the fakes.

    no point, fake followers/likes will give you a slight boost in real followers but that's about it.

    People seem to ignore most accounts with few followers likes. It is really hard to get pages off the ground without fakes.

    if you get a slight boost, isn't that the point?

    If your statement is correct you can scale, and add more fake followers then you get more real followers. So a lot of fakes can get you some real followers..

    More real followers = more customers eyes looking at your tweets...

    It looks better than no followers/no likes, your site/profile looks more popular and trustworthy. And it doesn't harm anything.

    I keep hoping my robotic followers will somehow become intelligent and start clicking on my ads. But they haven't so far.
