Great comments. In my article I did acknoledge the fact that using a service like Fiverr would lead to fake followers, no engagement, etc. It doesn't violate Twitter rules to do so either. Would I do this for a client? Most likely not. Again, it is very situational.
Most of the fake followers drop off after some time which is actually good. It's not a tactic that should be used by itself; however, in combination with the other tools it can be quite powerful when trying to build a community from scratch.
With this being said, of course I'd recommend building a community naturally by engaging with other users. That of course is the best strategy; however, I wanted to present one strategy that could possibly work for some.
