There are numerous Twitter marketing software product can be found on the internet at the present time. You can get them at no cost or with one time payment or even with subscription payments. 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 inadequate. Those Twitter marketing software claims that I could get tons of followers easily. Yes, I did. 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 try to make sales and never respond to me. I was like a lonely people in a crowded community, although I had thousands of followers.
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 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 tweets but I could not tweet. I guessed I had smashed some Twitter rules. Yes, I did. 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 softwares, I could follow and unfollow people fast and easy, but my Twitter account was under the risk of getting suspended. This can be 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.
