The scheme behind it is obviously that with more followers your tweets will get more and more noticed. As Twitter is used a lot for marketing, followers appear to be "key". But I believe more in quality than quantity.
I was just looking at my web analytics, and noticed that one particular post in our startup had been tweeted about by some Dutch actor. Some 60 clicks came from his Twitter page, with an avarage bounce rate of 72%. High, yes. But not as high as the other 70 clicks from the Twitter homepage, which had a 92% bounce rate. Conclusion: it's more important who tweets about you - and how many people chose to take an interest in what that person has to tweet, then to just get followers who don't even know what you(r product) are (is) about. (same counts for regular advertising; when BrandX says "our drink is good", ppl tend to trust it less then when their friend says "I tasted BrandX's drink, and I like it a lot") On Nov 7, 7:26 pm, Josh Roesslein <jroessl...@gmail.com> wrote: > Yeah. :\ I've seen this done on other "follower increase" sites.
