Millions of people use Twitter on a daily basis to follow celebrities, friends, sports stars and anyone else of interest at the moment. Twitter has gained great interest as a platform to be used as a marketing tool based mainly on the number of people that use Twitter. The big problem, however is that for most people their Twitter account is lost in the sea of Twitter, buried beneath everyone else, never to see the light of day.

Twitter is second now, to Facebook in the sheer numbers of people who tweet. Yet as far as marketing is concerned there are still mysteries to uncover. One key to advancing in the ranks is to increase the number of followers that follow your account. Up until now the only way to do that is to patiently tend to your account on a daily basis, and tweet back and forth lending pertinent content to everyone else’s tweet. Ah, a very slow process indeed.
But now, you can buy twitter followers. So just how does that work, you say? All you have to do is find a company that is legitimate and they will sell you followers.
Making the decision to buy Twitter followers is really a big step and it will boost your followers, but a word of caution is in order. It can be a dangerous move as well. When you do a search for buying twitter followers, you get a lot of hits for companies who will “guarantee” that these will be real people who will tweet and be active on your twitter account. Some of them will.
Many of them, however are just robotic clones that will do nothing and they will begin to drop off over time. While you may have a boost that looks good right away, it won’t do your Twitter account any good to begin losing followers, and in fact it could actually penalize your account.
A legitimate growth pattern in a Twitter account will display a consistent pattern of growth on a steady basis over a period of time. Once real people become engaged with your topic, they will tend to stay aboard because they view your account as a valuable resource. In other words, you really do have something valuable to offer. However, if you do start to have a fall off of followers in a grand scale, that is an abnormal event to Twitter.
A second, more dangerous problem is that many of these followers that you purchase are coming from a foreign country, such as India, and are simply manufactured for the purpose of filling up your list. This is a prime picking for hackers. Think about it. Once a hacker gets hold of your list and begins to get into the files of your real followers, your reputation could become toast. That is not a very good result.
If some things seem too good to be true, then they probably are. While there may be some legitimate companies where you can buy Twitter followers, it can come with hidden dangers.
