Having more followers on social media is always good, isn't it?

Even if they are bots? If you are a novice Twitter user, you will be happy when bots follow you!

And, you will learn you should care about quality over quantity!

But, it happens. Whenever you tweet something, fake Twitter accounts follow you.

Do not worry! You are not alone. People are searching for solutions on open forums.
