Got Fake Twitter Followers?

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Filament.io 0 Flares ×

One of the craziest things people believe about social media is that numbers matter – a LOT. I’m not saying they don’t matter some – as more followers typically means more people paying attention to you – but they don’t matter nearly as much as many people think. You can get fake Twitter followers for “just” $10 per thousand followers. AWESOME!

Don’t believe me?

Do a Google search for “buy Twitter followers” and see what you find. Here are the first results I got:

Do you have fake followers? You know the ones – those followers that have names like WhiskeyVixen523 and a half naked woman (or man) as an avatar.

YUCK!

It’s been really hard in the past to see if you had any fake followers or not. But now, it’s a little easier. Just go to this URL and plug in your Twitter handle.

Sure, it’s not perfect, but it’s a start to knowing if a percentage of your followers are fake or not.

One more thing: If you want to see if your social media expert is a fauxpert or a real expert, put their name in there. Anything about 10% should make you ask questions.

Last thing: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is, so please don’t buy any followers. Just keep working it, as hard as you can, for as long as you can, and have a real strategy for what you’re doing.

  1. Sorry, Phil, I have 0% fake followers.

    I guess I’m too good to be true, eh?

  2. Ran a few “name” accounts through this and the results were very interesting. Some with very large followings and high Klout scores had Fake followers in the range of 25% to 45% and good followers as low as 25%. Interesting.

  3. I guest I’m doing find, Fake 0% inactive 1% good 99% Thanks for the post ;)

  4. I wished there’s a browser add-on for the tool so can check the profile easily before following someone new. But like you said, the tool is still a reference, what matters is how the person engage with others. It’s perfectly fine to start building your following/follower count from scratch and fair, actually that’s for the user’s very own benefit – build long-lasting relationship instead of quick ‘hi’ and ‘bye’. We should see past the ‘number’ and more on quality.

  5. Celebrities get followed by fake accounts, but moreso they get followed by real people that never use their Twitter account, so it appears fake according to Status People’s guidelines. If you aren’t Justin Beiber, Anderson Cooper or Newt Gingrich, you shouldn’t have any fake followers. No one in these comments should have fake followers.

    What I find disturbing is when someone has 100,000+ followers, 80% are fake, and their claim to fame is that they wrote a book about how to get followers on Twitter. It disgusts me; that book could be summed up in 1 sentence: I bought them, they are worthless.

  6. I agree with you 100%. I once buyed 3k followers and now i have ended up with 685. Thanks for sharing :)
