Twitter is one of the major players in the world of social media and marketing and many celebrities and businesses have been found “guilty” of buying twitter followers. But why not buy twitter followers? After all, isn’t that what every twitter account needs – plenty of followers?
Here are a few good reasons how you could benefit if you decide to buy twitter followers.
If you have a large twitter following it makes you appear to be extremely important both to yourself and the rest of the twitter world. To be honest much of the social media activity is basically a thin attempt to disguise a growing amount of narcissism in the world – look at me, I’ve got x000 followers and x000 likes – aren’t I important?
This can be a great benefit to businesses. In many ways their own self promotion is merely a type of marketing or branding but there is no getting away from the fact that a large and healthy twitter following equates to the importance of the user. Entertainment venues for example, which have a high twitter following may have a better chance of securing the talents of the most sought after acts with the promise and the possibility of bringing in a good crowd for the show. The larger the twitter following the larger the potential crowd and the larger the potential crowd the later the potential payday.
If you buy twitter followers a large proportion of that number may realistically be fakes but there are always those who jump onto the bandwagon. If you have a large number of twitter followers it is likely to attract many more real followers. A food expert critic with 15 followers may not create much of a stir in twitter world but if that number was closer to a couple of thousand it would greatly enhance his online presence and reputation. This is one way in which you can increase your number of genuine, earned twitter followers by simply buying a few to get the party started.
Let’s face it; it is much easier to buy twitter followers than it is to earn them in other ways. Building a large twitter following takes tons of time and effort, you’ve got to be constantly twittering great content, sharing the latest news and thinking up witty remarks to keep the ball rolling. The alternative to all of that hard work and determination is to buy yourself a small army (or a large army) of twitter followers and let them do the work for you.
Lots of people have found a real benefit from buying twitter followers. The practice is particularly common among celebrities and politicians who have much to gain from gathering large numbers of followers over a relatively short time period.
President Obama has almost 30 million followers of which around 70% were bought in. Likewise Lady Gaga has more than 35 million twitter followers but more than 70% of those are bought and paid for.
If the decision to buy twitter followers has worked for President Obama and Lady Gaga who are we to argue?
