Not wise to buy Twitter followers.
As a blogger who wants to reach out to more followers, there is always an urge to get more readers. This question is very much relevant because the more people i get, higher is the chances of more people reading my blog. So, to get more readers to my blog, I took to Twitter and created an account at @chiprang.I started tweeting all my updates with some questions and what my few followers thought about my latest article. I also looked at profiles and followed the ones that interested me the most.

It was Slow...?

It was slow process but followers trickled in like rain drops within a week. In two months, I some 300 followers to my blog's Twitter account. It was extremely slow,,, I keep looking for people to follow, but it began eating up my time and i begin to write less.

I Googled the words “How to get more Twitter followers?” Some of these answers were mixed up. Some suggested that I buy followers, which was totally new thing to me. Some suggested that buying was frowned upon. So, I set out to see if the later method really works and if it works out so well as claimed by many bloggers. So, I spent $5 on a seller who promised to get me 3000 followers.

Buying Followers No So Bad...

Within 3 days, I had some 3800 followers. The seller said he gave me some real extra followers because I was his 1000th customer! I was totally elated. Imagine, two months of hard work got me just 300 followers and in 3 days I got 3000+ for just one cup of coffee worth. So, I asked the seller to double up. In 6 days, followers rose up to 6500+ (combined with the natural followers who were genuinely interested in my articles).

No "Real Followers"...

However, my joy was short lived. WHen i checked my followers, most of them were just 'EGGS' (accounts with no profile pic or simply called 'bot followers'). They were bots, in fact nothing but bogus. I was furious. But, when I complained, they told me that I had not asked for “real” followers". I was totally confused and startled by the new revelation that there can be "real" and "not real" followers on Twitter.

Worst of all, as one week passed, the number of followers began to fall rapidly. A month later, I was left with just 700 followers! Probably, these were the only real genuine followers who voluntarily followed me. I complained again. This time there was no response...till today.

Negative of Buying Twitter Followers

I learnt my lesson that month and never to buy Twitter followers again. Since then I have been sticking to what I do best - write and write. I've stopped promoting my Twitter page nor Facebook pages. But, I'm happy with the small number of followers or likes I get every week. But, now I at peace, knowing that I don't have fake followers but only people who are genuinely interested are following me and reading my blog. Twitter numbers in many cases are just a false illusion and it is said many celebrities and established bloggers who compete with each others buy followers. As a blogger who is constantly trying to do better and find out things for myself, I did not regret buying those followers as it turned out to be one of the most important lessons in my blogging experience.
