Here’s the deal on that. You are being spammed because of some of your hashtags or words used in your tweets.
NO – never buy followers. YOU could be penalized and have your twitter account shut down by twitter.
I advised a client against buying followers but he did it anyway and the result was 1,000 followers who where porn hawkers. You cannot image the mess that made for his business. He had to shut down his twitter account and build a new one. Don’t do it, for any reason.
If you use hashtags with these words: follow, followback, teamfollowback (and variations of that) you’ll begin to get the followers you DO NOT WANT. These are ones who are spamming you now. You may have followed one of those accounts unknowingly or thought it was harmless. It’s not! Follow carefully!
I found if I followed one musician I started getting rap people who use the most foul language following me and of course, I don’t want that, you know? No one want’s that for a business or even personal account where business might be involved.
I followed one actress, and suddenly had all kinds of media garbage about Hollywood that I simply abhor, beginning to follow me.
It’s not really a crap shoot, just DO NOT follow these people back and never, ever, buy followers.
