There are a lot of Twitter marketing software product can be found on the internet nowadays. Some of them are free and some of them will cost you some money. With so many software and applications associated with Twitter that had been developed, I can see how strong is the demand for these software. And also how many people are trying to success in Twitter marketing by using these software.
I did try some of the software and applications in order to get more followers on Twitter, this is the main selling point of most of the Twitter marketing software. However, the results were very disappointing. Those Twitter marketing software claimed that I could get tons of followers easily in few days or weeks. However, I found that the Twitter followers who follow me back were mostly spammers! Who were they? They were mostly the users who never read tweets and tweet the same message everyday, with their product links by using the Twitter marketing software also. Among my Twitter followers, 90 percent of them tried to make sales and never respond to me. I was quite disappointed with this situation on Twitter.
The worst case had not yet happened. After few months, my Twitter account was getting suspended! What a shock when I tried to log in to my Twitter account and I saw the big bold words “Hold up!” and a line of message “Sorry, the profile you were trying to view has been suspended due to strange activity.” I could still view other people’s update but I could not tweet. I guessed I had break some Twitter usage rules. Yes, I did actually after I read their terms of usage. One of the Twitter rules is users are not allowed to mass follow or unfollow people in a short span of time. By using Twitter marketing software, I could follow and unfollow people fast and easy, but my Twitter account was taking the risk of getting suspended. This is probably one of the major weaknesses of Twitter marketing software.
From that day onwards, I tried to avoid using Twitter marketing software to build my business on Twitter. I tried to figure out what are the methods that works without using any software. After months of trial, I found out that I managed to get more quality Twitter followers than before. Those good followers are very responsive and they read my tweets, retweet for me and chat with me. I feel Twitter is more enjoyable without using Twitter software. This is probably because you and your followers love to interact with real people on the internet and not the auto direct message or auto response. When I tried to practice what works on Twitter everyday, my Twitter followers grow and they are mostly great people to follow.
As a conclusion, I believe that most of the people that really success in Twitter marketing do not use software to help them to get followers. Two thousand of loyal and quality followers can be much more better than twenty thousand of Twitter followers.
