I've seen a lot of gigs on Fiverr that advertise on how they will provide followers for your account, and although I don't question that these people will deliver, I am curious as to why people would pay for such a thing in the first place. I don't see much reason in having a bunch of followers on your account that aren't legitimately interested in what you have to tweet anyway, especially considering that most of these followers will turn out to be just bots. I'm curious as to why people buy these services aside from the obvious reason of just having a high number of followers, since even if it's just $5, I still see it as a wasted expense since it doesn't really contribute much to an overall marketing plan. Am I missing something here? Do these types of services have benefits beyond having a high number of followers?
