Mental Illness And Common Behavioral Health Issues

With health, the tendency is to focus on the physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions. However, there’s one more aspect that people aren’t aware of: behavioural health. Many think that this is interchangeable with mental illness, but it isn’t. Neurological and biological factors can affect the latter while the former relies significantly on a person’s behaviour and choices.

Experts On Behavioral Health’s Advice: Don’t Buy Twitter Followers To Become Famous

Fame is comparable to a drug that tends to affect the mental health of the people getting addicted to it. Many individuals who get a taste of it wants to experience it over and over, to the point that they don’t mind lowering their morals to gain popularity. In truth, the most wicked thing that A-listers and socialite-wannabes can do – or have done – is buying Twitter followers.


Sadly, that is not a typographical error. Several artists have been accused of pre-ordering their followers so that it will seem like a significant number of fans are interested in seeing their posts every day. The strength must come in numbers, after all. Thus, they are willing to buy Twitter followers and not wait for their real supporters to follow them at their own accord.

How Can You Purchase The Following?

There are hideous companies who sell dummy or once-deactivated accounts at approximately $10 for every 1,000. The amount will suffice if you are 1,000 followers shy of reaching, say, the 1,000,000 following mark. However, in case the number of your subscribers are still in 20,000, that is a long way to go and a fat sum of money to spend.

Will People Find Out About It?

With those who hang on to each word you utter, maybe you will be safe. Such folks will ideally pay no mind to anything fishy that’s going on with your other followers. The same cannot be guaranteed, though, for the select few whose job is to dig down deep into famous personalities’ dirt.

The fake accounts are easy to notice because they do not have profile pictures (only the basic Twitter egg is shown) or posts in the page. That is why a lot of curious minds can assume that the public figures that have more “egghead” followers are the ones who have resorted to buying the Twitter following.


How Will Buying Followers Affect You?

If you are curious about this infamous trend, you can keep on reading below.

1. Sudden Rise In Popularity

The desire to be popular is what drives so many people to buy Twitter followers. The question “Why does he/she have more following when I have more talents than them?” often rings in their brain. Because of that, if the usual invitations do not work, they bite the bullet and opt to purchase followers instead.

There are individuals out there that you may have heard of to only have a hundred followers on a night, for instance, but their subscription increased to over a million after a few days and made them instant celebrities before they can do something big and amazing. Likewise, there already are stars who have used the same technique to perhaps show to the others that people appreciate them too. Is it an applaudable tactic, though? Nope.

2. Lose Money

Purchasing a thousand following, for example, does not cost over $10. While the cost may not be much, you need to have at least one million followers before the journalists take notice of you and write an article about you. If you do the math with this idea, you will have to pay $10,000 to make it happen. That is honestly a considerable amount of money that regular folks will not be willing to spend on something that is intangible.


3. Lower Credibility

Someone who gets outed as a buyer of Twitter followers may undoubtedly be on the wrong side of the individuals who used to adore them. News about such things tends to come out at one point because everyone has eyes and is capable of putting two and two together. Once the fans realize that those elites are faking their popularity, their real supporters, as well as their credibility, might diminish.

Remember: it is not difficult to find out who does this and who does not when the profiles are open to the public. You will not even be required to download specialized software to do it. By merely checking the list of followers in someone’s account, you can tell whether their accounts are active or they have no profile pictures. The latter are called eggheads – the followers that have been achieved by being bought.

Is It Worth Buying Twitter Followers?

If you are desperate, then maybe. However, if you sincerely think about it, it is nothing but a waste of effort and money. Those followers you buy are not your real fans, frankly speaking. They cannot buy your albums, watch your movies, or go to your gigs to support you. Hence, you are practically fooling yourself that things are going your way.

Try to stay as far as way as possible from this infamous activity if you don’t need trouble in your life. Good luck!
