Buying twitter followers!

The only time I'd consider buying followers would be if I hit Twitter's follow-limit.

Twitter lets you follow 2,000 users total. If you want to follow more than 2,000 users you need to grow your own followers list, at a ratio of around ten new followers allowing you to follow eleven new users. I'm following around 1,100 accounts right now and I'm not adding a lot so I'll probably never need to buy followers, but $20 to buy 1,000 (or 10,000!) fake followers would probably be worth it for heavy Twitter followers/users.

glad i'm on the other side of middle age. this internet crap is out of control... a total prison cell. its gonna be where you're gonna have to be online just to take a **** and a potential employer is gonna be able to judge whether to hire you on its color and smell.

Sinatra's manager paid girls to yell "Frankie" and faint at shows.

AND....it doesn't just apply to Twitter or Facebook. All people need is to THINK you're someone. Let's put this into practice in the real world...

If you go to the Black hat forums you can see all the dodgy digital marketing guys and scammers discussing the latest bots. You'll also be amazed at the lengths some of them go to to scam people on Facebook.

I worked for record labels in marketing. Black hat (unethical) tactics was and probably still is industry standard.

There is a big difference between looking like a dickhead and actually being one...

I should know.
