Unfortunately, we have to list our very first “Two Thumbs Down”. We don’t do it lightly. This Twitter Review is dedicated to “Followers Train”, found at TwitterBuilding.com.
Let us preface by saying that this is actually a fantastic idea. Very simple and straight-forward. It’s something akin to what you’ll find at WeFollow.com, but much more basic.
The synopsis is that you create an account, and hang out online — the idea being that everyone online sees each other and follows each other. This is a spaghetti-on-the-wall approach, NOT intended to help you find a targeted market. But let’s face it, people like to follow people with lots of other followers. I mean, if they have lots of followers, they must be doing something right. Right?
- poor graphics & layout
- very few followers (and few of them are online at any given time, meaning you have to hangout online for a long time just to get some followers
- google ads spackle the site, making it difficult to read & navigate, and…
- the #1 reason is that they take over your Twitter account and post annoying, automated messages on your account at least once a day. Often several times a day.
We had to cancel our account to get the daily auto-tweets stopped. (Well, we hope that did the trick). Let us not be totally down on this site. It has some potential. But even if they had put in a TINY bit more effort, the overall effect would have been better, and I think that’s the most perturbing thing.
UPDATE: This post now includes www.twtexpress.info. We wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the same people pulling of the same half-hock operation. Two thumbs down “Get Followers”.
